How do you pronounce this tractor name: Bready. Is it pronounced Brady like Marsha Brady or Bready like the word bread with 'e' sound at the end? I've pronounced it the second way. I've heard other people pronounce it that way but I was talking with an older fellow earlier today and we were talking tractors and I mentioned mine and he said he had always thought it as Brady. So that got to wonder. Thought I'd put up for vote here, see what I get.

Off topic but I had to add:

According to my Platoon Drill sergeant in basic training, the only DUMB questions were the ones we did not ask him.

consider your question anything but stupid

Breee dee gets My vote. Just similar to Breading with long E sound, my neighbors name. If we knew the nationality of that name, might find what the word means in native language and might be enough to figure out sounding.

According to a couple die hard Bready collectors that I know, the correct pronunciation is Brady.
