Neukirchen probably as well, if it could be said aloud. But it can’t. :(
why: what’s the deal with “Neukirchen”?
/me recalls Austin expressing his gratitude to Mr. Newkircken for the DE localization of Ruwiki and the reminiscences of his long forgotten Italian past brought by the RubyGems & Ruwiki presentations ;-)
Haha! That makes me feel all special :)
You’d be surprised how hard my last name is for some people.
them: last name please
me: tennis, like the game
them: ? spell that please
kode: that seems about right to me.

The sound is not too unlike how you pronounce TeX, I think.
My own relatives have trouble spelling my last name. It’s A-y, right Why? ;)
chris2: Yeah like we’re going to believe that.
I always want to read Caleb Tennis as Caleb Dennis. Isn’t there someone in the Ruby community with the last name Dennis? Maybe that is why I do this…or I just don’t like Tennis as a last name.
Next thing you know we’ll be seeing Ralf Football, Gene Hockey and Garth Bowling on ruby-talk.
I will soon be writing a “Friday” book for the PragProgs called “GTK is Better Than Qt, in Ruby”. I’m sure you will find it better than the offering from this so-called Tennis person. Have you ever compared a tennis ball to a bowling ball? Exactly.
Hey Mr. Bowling,
Take your big balls and go bother someone else!
- Mr. Golf, Proud to have small, dimply balls
Oh, great. Just what I need. The name Garth Bowling. It makes me want to shoot myself.
Elf? I know someone named Ork (which is the dutch translation for the more commonly known Orc).
Guys my last name has landed me dead last in the phone book every where I have even lived ;-)
Funny that there should be 2 of us at the same conference; it’s not that common of a name.
“Tennis” is a strange name, but people have problems with mine, too. “Love”. Who the heck can’t spell “love”? But I get asked all the time how to spell it.
I have the bad luck to have a French last name which is also a correct English word (Grandsire). Not a very common English word, but known by many people nonetheless. I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve heard my last name pronounced “grandseye-er” :( .
And then there’s the strange mistake I’ve seen many people do in the country I’ve been living in for four years (the Netherlands), which is to write and pronounce my name as “grandshire”. Come on! I may be a LOTR fan but this is ridiculous!
Hah. I can’t say ‘Aredridel’ either. Guess it’ll just be ‘Ari’ or ‘Aria’ in person.
‘McCoey’ should be said like ‘McCoy’ only with an Irish accent! Seeing my name up here also makes me feel happy!
