obviously it'll be hard to pronounce names over the internet but ds is reading "bink abd gollie"

How would you pronounce Gollie's name? I say it like golly g, that's a whopper!

Ds pronounces it like gully, like guillotine (sp?... the thing that beheaded people back in the day)... or gull like a sea gull, but with an E sound at the end.

Also, am I supposed to correct him every time? Cuz we've read this book for over an hour's time within a few days, I correct him EVERY time and he still says gully.

If you have to keep interrupting the reading to correct the name, then I wouldn't bother.  It doesn't change the story and if he's more comfortable saying it that way then I'd let him.  It's not like it's a common name that he should learn for the future.
