Or(eye)on or Or(ee)on, same thing. Same as Tomate, TomAto. Same as you can say (eye)ran, or (ee)ram..

In fact, Or(ee)on is the most accepted international pronunciation. Almost makes me like Obama because of it.

Webmaster: Not if you're speaking ENGLISH. There are no alternate pronunciations.

Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary, 11th Edition

Ori·on

To be fair, that's the latin pronunciation.
