Kris Crocker kxly (shown in Twitter photo) was gracious enough to emcee Spokane County Library District Night at the Library, recently. A consumate professional she wanted to ensure she pronounced Hval correctly. I got an email from her with this link. "I'm doomed if I have to say it either of these ways," she wrote. And so would most of us be. Mercy! (For the record it's Huh-vall and she pronounced it perfectly.)
Question: Is your surname easy to pronounce?
