How To Pronounce ‘PETA’ (as in People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) — 3 Comments

  1. If you break the words down, it makes sense:

    People (‘P’ sound)
    for the
    Ethical (‘Eh’ sound)
    Treatment (‘T’ sound)
    of
    Animals (‘Ah’ sound)

    So, logically, it’s pronounced Peh-tah, not Pee-tah.

  2. I say ‘petta’ like you. ‘peter’ seems just the wrong pronunciation.

    I ad a childhood friend named ‘Peta’, her parents called her ‘Peter’ which she understandably hated as it is usually a male name. She liked to be called ‘Petta’ (Peta)
