They do all the time.

Phreak says Jonna(short o). Janna herself says Janna. (short a)

It might be phreak or it might be someone else, but I've heard a rioter pronounce Zilean "Zee-lean," and Volibear definitely says Zilean. I guess it's possible for the actors to have gotten these names wrong too, but I think it's more likely they made sure to get them right for the recording and rioters just misuse them in passing.

I've heard discrepancies on "Shaco," (Phreak says Shay-co, i believe official stance is Shayco) but if that's the case, the pun on the "Nut-Crack-O" skin is lost.

I believe Shaco is the biggest offender here.

Other names that are open to interpretation/lack clarification:

Cho'Gath
Darius (is it Darius or Dahrius)
Gragas (Grag or grog?)
Le Blanc (how french should you get, exactly? lol)
Taric (or Tahric)
Udyr (Oo-deer? Yoo-deer? Ooder? Yooder?)
Varus (or Vahrus?)
Veigar (Vee-gar, vye-gar, or vey-gar?)
Xin Zhao (GL getting people to pronounce chinese words. I believe chinese people would say something like "jow" though)

It's always nid-uh-lee, and "nid." Not nee-duh-lee, and "need."

Imagine saying... Look at all these "need" spears, or "need" players.

Is kat-uh-ree-na now kayt-uh-ree-na?

Saying needalee flies in the face of every 'instinct' i have for pronouncing english words. it mystifies me how they all agreed that "nidalee" was the best combination of letters to represent the sound "needalee." That said, i think "nidalee" sounds better anyway.
