No name in footy rolls off the tongue better than Orazio Fantasia — just ask Brian Taylor.

But as it turns out, we’ve been pronouncing it wrong the whole time he’s been in the competition.

Not the first name — BT’s “Oraaaaaazio” is still right — but the surname is pronounced “Fan-ta-see-ya” rather than the “Fan-tay-zha” we’ve all been saying since he came on the scene.

Chris Judd gave Triple M’s Friday night team the tip-off on the mispronunciation last week, and Orazio Fantasia himself confirmed it on the Friday Huddle tonight.

BT’s gonna have to relearn how to say it for those calls of Oraaaaazio Fantasia!
