A lot of names from different countries seem really strange to us...just as our names seem strange to those from non-English speaking countries.
I was working away today, typing from the sound files when I came across this memorable name...Phuc Ngo. I kid you not...that was the name. The doctor dictating was trying to pronounce it without giving the obvious pronunciation and having a bit of a giggle while he was trying not to offend.
I think the owner of that name was a male...but what I'd like to know, is how do you pronounce it without giving offence?
Have you come across names that are really "different"? I'd love to know what they are.
