It might help to explain that the pronunciation is "post-gres" or
"post-gres-cue-ell", not "post-gray-something".
I heard people making this same mistake in presentations at this

the 1996 decision to call it PostgreSQL instead of reverting to
plain Postgres was the single worst mistake this project ever made.
It seems far too late to change now, though.
