I will note that the term "Mike Teutcsh dolly" is far too cumbersome, so I've taken to abbreviating it as the "Teutsch-y", as in "When I say action, push my Teutschy gently towards the actors". For some reason, I occasionally get strange looks from the crew...

Since you guys probably aren't pronouncing my name correctly anyhow, you could just call it the:

"Tushy-Pushy" :)

I'm looking at the spelling, and for the life of me I can't figure out how it's supposed to sound. You must get tired of spelling it out. when people hear my last name, they get a fog over their eyes about halfway through. most just cut off 2/3rds and just say Fosse.

When people look at Deutsch they have no problem, but when we change the "D" to a "T" they do!

I worked for an NCO a few decades ago who had a name that if your looked at his nametag before trying to say it...You were dead.

SSgt Yackaniczw

Took me about 3 weeks to finally realize that I had to look away before addressing him by title and name.





Pronounced Yah-SKAH-nich...

Having such a difficult last name myself, i've always been interested in last names. I've done some research into mine and found that sometime after the civil war, the spelling was changed. We found my great great great, well not sure how many greats, grandfather's civil war discharge papers and it was spelled Vossenkemper. Then I tried to figure out what it ment. So far i've come up with, Bender of wood (or barrel maker), I've also come up with warrior.

Yours Truely,
Mike the Wood Bender.

Ah the difficult last names problem rears it's head again. The funny thing is I never thought my last name was that difficult, but I ever since I can remember it's been a problem.
No one seems to read HURTER when they read my last name. They see HUNTER, HARDER, HARTER, HERTER (at least that one would sound right), and yes even HOOPER.
