That depends on what part of the world you are from. I'd say Dahl-fee.

Armenian it is, I believe. Of course that could mean his family originates in what is Turkish territory (the genocide committed by the Turks to [?] the Armenian people was the first of many to follow in this century -- end of miniature history lesson).
