Broke-uh.

That's from a Jersey boy who grew up on the shore ;)

You'd have to ask Larry Hama for certain, but the spelling lends itself to be like I said (brak-ah) would be spelled Brocca and not with one 'c'.

I agree. I grew up saying 'Brocka', but I understand now the phonetically it should be pronounced Bro-Ka because of the vowel-consonant-vowel rule, making the 'o' a long and not short vowel.

I always read it slightly different: BRO-kah.
