In the Creightons’ case, however, the family itself became the arbiter of its own calling. Ultimately, it was James McCrarin’s brother Christopher who standardized the name as Creighton, dropping the “Mc-” (a prefix indicating “son of”), Anglicizing the approximate long-A vowel sound as “eigh” and making the second, clipped R sound into a hard T.


Can we put this in the media guide? It's amazing how many announcers (and alumni) screw the pronunciation up. Long A. No E.
