  1. Vigor or Veegor?

    Dominator / FMX
    Just out of interest. I've always pronounced it "Vigor", with a short "i" as in "pig". Just recently I've spoken to a couple of people who pronounced it "Veegor", with a long "e" as in "sheep". Then the other day one bloke said "Vygor" with a long "i" as in "wine" Any votes one way or the other?
