How to pronounce "Womack"

Posted: 10 Jan 2011 9:15AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Womack Drabble
My great great grandmother was Ada Womack who married Charles Ashforth Drabble in 1888. I'd assumed her maiden name was pronounced as it looks - "Woe-mack", but a relative has told me he recalls it being pronounced "Wumm-uck". Maybe the pronunciation varied over time and/or in different dialects. Can anyone shed any light on this?
Many thanks
Gordon Lonsdale
