Hobberk - said like robber (except for the H & K - to deter any pedants).

This.

It really is a bastardized word. From Germanic to Old French (think Quebecois) and then messed up with some Middle English. In the end you can probably pronounce it how you like and still get the point across to those who know what the heck one is.

Dictionary.com has it as haw-burk: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/hauberk, as does Oxford Living Dictionaries: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/hauberk, although with a very different accent :D

Of the two dictionaries I looked at one has a strong American accent, the other has a strong British accent. I can't find one with a Kiwi accent :D

Stick to the British one, the only thing the Yanks know about the English language is how to mangle it. ;)

I heard Fiat pronounced by Matt le Blanc on *Top Gear* recently as Feee-aarrt: as another example I could also give you Aloominum. They can say it however they want, but it ain't English.
