I think this may be a specifically Canadian pronunciation of the name; I know I've heard it before. (I don't know to what extent it correlates with the disyllabic pronunciation of words like known and shown, which I've also noticed in Canadian English.)

For all I know, that's how he pronounced it. But I've never heard anything but "lorn"...

How does their fellow-Canadian Lorne Michaels pronounce his first name? I've only ever heard "lorn." Or are Canadians too forlauren to care, due to their long, hard winters?
