Picky Post Of The Day!

Latin is a wonder. With Latin, for this naive lad, there is "the proper" pronunciation, and the "more realistic" version. For example (lacking proper vowel marks, etc. on my keyboard), B. histrionica (proper) I *think* should be something like Hees-tree-oon-ee-kaw? However, that's too awkward for me, so I've ended up saying His-tree-on-i-kaw. Any other shots at this out there?
