At Cornell, Max Black called Donnellan (who was  his graduate student) 
"Donnell'an". Donnellan was too shy to correct Black --  'in awe' of Black, 
even. (Donnellan's preferred, 'correct', pronunciation was,  of course,  
"Donn'ellan"). It was only when Donnellan moved to UCLA that  the pronunciation 
"Do'nnellan" became more standard: he was then allowed to set  the record 
straight. 

Cheers,

Speranza
