Reminds me of when we did not know how to pronunce Linux. (it's "linnucks" per the developer)

I have always assumed its "droo' pul". Accent on the first syllable.

Golly, I hope I am not wrong.

Yep, that's correct. In case it clarifies here's another attempt at sounding it out with letters: Drew - Pull
As in, "you drew a great picture"... and eh.... "a big truck can pull a large trailer" :P

I feel much better and be sure to pronouce it correctly.

As a Dutch men it is funny to see how different people from different countries pronounce Drupal. And that is part of "correct" answer. There is no right way to pronounce it, it is pronounced the way you say it. (didn't mean to sound do zen :-). So Americans say droooopal, Germans have a hard A in pal and the Dutch say druppel, [ˈdrʏpəl].

Me and my co-workers are having a great debate on it.

For me it's Drou + pal but for others it's Dru + pal.

For me in French it's Dru + pal
