The people at PETA pronounce the name of their organisation in a different way to what one might expect, in my opinion. I have been mispronouncing it for years! Well there it is and now I know. How did I find out? PETA now have a regular podcast and the introduction includes pronouncing the acronym: PETA.

Please play this short audio file for the correct way to say PETA.

  1. 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)
