Funnily enough, in the Italian dubbing of the original series, Spock was usually pronounced something like "Spahk", while in the following films, it was usually pronounced like "Spohk". I always wondered why.

On the other hand, due to the phonetic differences between English and Italian, also all the other names were pronounced quite differently from the original sound. McCoy became something like "MacKoee", and Kirk sounded more like "Keerk", etc.
Perhaps this might explain why in "The Immunity Syndrome" Kirk kept referring to Lt. Kyle as Kowl
