As it's a German name I strongly believe it's pronounced like this:

"a" - an open "a", like "u" in "fun", the stressed syllable
"P" - more voiced version of "p", something between "p" and "b"
"g" - a hard "g"

That wouldn't sound right here in NZ because it would sound like "ass burgers" to us that way. (we say the first bit of said sounding with an open "a")

To my understanding there is no correct pronunciation outside of the German language. Take your pick.

I prefer ASP-URGES

.. ASS BURGERS is americanised and sounds demeaning

I tend to pronounce it with a very short, barely-there "A" (almost more like "uh" than "a") and a hard "G". Also, I stress the second syllable (so basically, "asPERger"). I don't know if it's meant to be pronounced that way, but it's what I grew up with and whenever I pronounce it like that people seem to know what I mean, so I'm quite happy pronouncing it like that. :)

I pronounce it primarily as 'autistic psychopathy'.

Not only is it more correct, but it seems to keep people away from me.

Asperger: (difficult to describe for english ears).
As like "Aspen".
per like "bear" with a soft p.
ger like "gir" in girl, but short. (That is the closest, I can come).

As pear gir
As per ger

take "ass-burgers"
replace the initial a with the first sound in "I"/the spanish sound for "a"
replace "b" in burgers with a soft, non-aspirated p.

as-prgrs.

I like the oxford way of saying it.

a-sper-gers

short vowel "a" and a hard "g" sound.

The Webster version sounds like "ass burgers" as if you can s**t hamburger out of your ass and if you could? you might be working for McDonnalds.
