Is it pronounced LAIRavel or LOREavel?

I noticed Mr. Paulk has been pronouncing it LOREavel... but I've heard it pronounced otherwise. Just curious how it's technically pronounced.

Taylor Otwell (creator of Laravel) pronounces it LAIRavel, so I think that's generally the accepted pronunciation.

Taylor Otwell, who created Laravel pronounces it L-air-ah-v-ehl. I will go with however he pronounces it.
