It depends on where you first hear the word or guess what it should be pronounced like. I always assumed Ensete were pronounced on-sett instead of eNn-setti.
And of course there's those Cotton Easter's that Ma had in her garden but then some of us learned a bit of Latin and Greek as well as other languages and sometimes apply pronunciations used in one language to a word from another
I doubt if any of us are right all the time and although some of us delight occasionally in a little light-hearted pedantry, I was always taught that it's bad manners to make personal remarks or correct other people's pronunciation.
It would be awful if we discouraged people from gardening by implying that spelling or pronunciation is of huge importance - gardening is such a great leveller
