The way I learned it was that if it is named after a person (Warzewicz or however you spell it), you pronounce it like the person would pronounce their name (plus the appropriate latinized ending). And hence no orchid species should be named after Poles or Czechs... *grin* At least not if you want me to pronounce it. I usually just say it really fast and hope nobody notices...
