    That is the for real correct way to say it. They say it the other way at the beginning of the In Bloom music video just to be funny I guess.

    Hello.My name is Nirvana..And I've been born in the culture from which the name originally comes..meaning I'm a Hindu.So I think I might be the better placed to correct the pronunciation here.I've chosen the answer upwards because you had to choose one to comment but let me be clear: it's pronounced neither way.

    it's "neer(like near or fear)-vaa-naa..as simple as that..

    I don't see why anyone would find it a mouthful to spell when I've known many who came from regions as reputed for tongue-twisting accents as Ireland and Scotland who could spell it flawlessly,,

    I say it that way as well. And everyone I know says it that way too. If you look at the way the word is spelt, it makes the most sense :)

    I think it might be a European thing because you and kaihallarm111 are European and everyone I know says it nur-von-uh which is also where the band is from.

    Yeah I guess it depends on where you're from and what accent you have. Oh well, it's not like the guys in Nirvana invented the word so I guess it doesn't really matter ^_^

    My family are all southerners. I have a really pronounced southern Louisiana accent, like my dad (even though I was never raised there).

    That's probably why then, even though you weren't raised there the people you learned to talk from have an accent therefore giving you the accent.
