I've always heard Heigl pronounced Hi-gel, with the "Hi" being pronouned the same as the words "eye" or "skye" or "bye", and the "gel" part pronounced with a hard g, as in "gal" or "good", with the middle vowel like the backwards e one sees in phonoetc pronunciations in dictionaries... the unspecific vowel, for lack of a better word. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ... Also, the emphasis is on the "Hi" part, as in HI-gel.

Let me know if that doesn't make sense! [img]smilies/lol.gif[/img]

I don't know for sure, since I have never heard anyone pronounce her name, but I've always pronounced it Heagle, like "eagle" the animal, just with an H before. But what do I know, it might as well be "Hi gal !" but with a schwa (that's the name of the phonetics e) instead of the a.

Hey everyone [img]smilies/wave.gif[/img] This is an issue which has intrigued me for long, long time [img]smilies/lol.gif[/img]

I think it depends who & where it is pronounced, b/c in the US it always seems to be prounounced "High-Gull" but in the UK, I've heard it being prounced "Hee-Gill"...

Though I'm pretty sure that the correct way is the "High-Gull" way... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I've always heard it as High-Gull, too. It is probably how it's pronounced.

Well, I'm pretty sure the pronunciation is as I said above, but someone whose native language is German should confirm it one way or the other. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

It is pronounces "Hi-gul". I remember it from something I read or saw with her. She said that she has heard it all but that it the right way of pronouncing it.

for the record (and to confuse things even further [img]smilies/lol.gif[/img] )...

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, May 15, 2000
Doubtful at first, Heigl now a believer in 'Roswell'


...Then she was persuaded to read the pilot script for "Roswell," a well-crafted sci-fi love story based on the "Roswell High" series of books by Melinda Metz, about teenage aliens trying to survive in a hostile environment -- Earth.
"I read it hesitantly," Heigl recalled.
But the prospect of a steady income and regular weekly exposure is appealing to most young actors, and Heigl gradually warmed to the idea of playing Isabel Evans, one of three orphaned survivors of a UFO crash in Roswell, N.M.
By the time Heigl (pronounced HIGH-gul) had been put through TV's "torturous" audition process, first in front of producers, then in front of network executives, she was so invested in the project that her snobbery had melted under a tide of intense proprietorship. "At that point," she said, "I really wanted it."...


Also,

Venice Magazine, December 1998

Barely 20 years old and with eight feature films to her name, Katherine Heigl, (pronounced Hi-goal), has been gracing movie screens since she was eleven years old, and unless youve been living in a cave for the past few years, youre sure to recognize her recent work.
