Hihi! Wikipedia says:

The term trie comes from "retrieval." Following the etymology, the inventor, Edward Fredkin,
pronounces it [tɹi] ("tree"). However, it is pronounced [tɹaɪ] ("try") by other authors.

So I would use Fredkin's pronunciation!
But when it moves to core as NumericRangeQuery, the nice name is away :(
