Andreas Jaohansson /andre@s jQ:ns@n/ (names ending in -sson still evoke the lowering of the stressed vowel, usually dropped from the genitive in Old Føtisk).

Assuming the American pronunciation ... Gjæn Kahun /dZa:n ka:un/ Or calquing the common & obvious name 'John' Johan /jo:n/

Barri Garsija /'barri 'garsija/ And of course mine own: Tristan McLe /trist@n m@kle:/ or maybe Tristan Læsson /trist@n la:s@n/ or maybe something different entirely, I'm not sure how to borrow Mc-, really. (Of course, in my name it doesn't *mean* anything, my father is named Bob, but it's the thought that counts.) -- Tristan.
