I've heard tell that it's the first one but I've (almost) always used the second one.

It's like Warwick  … lots say it without the middle w as in Worrick. She says it's War wick.

Considering he called his son Zowie it's gotta be the 1st one.

Dionne was born Warrick,they spelt it wrong on her 1st recording and she stuck with it.

Daytime tv is so educational, it came up just the other day.
