Subject: Re: (Fwd) Re: Euphonizing (?) proper names
My own surname was moderately productive of slurs in
elementary school (Behrend - - Bare End, hahaha), but I've always
wondered what families named Fuch and Fuchs do? I've seen the name
frequently in print, but have never heard it pronounced in English.
I was always fond of Glowka-Cola myself, although the mutilation of Blowka
was never welcome.
