There are certainly acronyms which have more syllables if you pronounce the names of letters; for example, "AWOL" (where "W" can have three syllables).
There are also words like "book" where you might say "b-double-O-k" to add syllables.
The problem is that those pronunciations aren't actually pronunciations of *words*, so such answers don't seem in the spirit of the question.
