Well, what I've done is to choose the phonology of your name so that its
actual pronunciation sounds as close to the real French one as possible.
Hence /gkhi/ is [khi], [kxi], [kXi] or [kRi] (where R is voiceless uvular
trill). /sdof/ is [stof]. The stress is on the first syllable, so it's unfrench
that way, but in other respects it sounds like French _Christophe_.
/gghasqigh/ is [gGa~siG], where G is a voiced velar fricative, or a voiced
velar fricative or trill. After [i] it can also be realized by fricating
