Hmmm, seems like I left out a few. No hurt feelings. :P
More Jovianized names:

Carsten Becker: Carten ['kart@(n)], Casten ['kaSt@(n)] or even
Cartsen ['karts@(n)] Beccer ['bekk@r]
Sally Caves: Saelli ['sElli] Ceves ['ke:vz]
Roger Mills: Traditionally Rodsé [rA'dze:] from French, or
slightly weird phonetic Roddser ['rAd.dz@r] Milles ['milz]
Philip Newton: Traditional Filippe [fi'lip] or Flippe [flip]
Teoh: Assuming it's really pronounced [to~:], it would end up
as Ton [tAn]. That's how French [A~ O~] are treated in
Jörg Rhiemeier: Joerge [jarg] or Jerge [jErg] Rimaeher
David Peterson: Traditional Bide [bi:d], from English Deivid
['dejvi] + sandhi ;), Piortson ['pirtsAn] or Pitertson
[pi'tErtsAn], Piter-Son ['pi:t@r sAn]
Benct Philip Jonsson: Traditionally Beondicte [bEn'diCt],
presuming the name is derived from Benedict. Philip: see
above. Jontson ['jAntsAn], Jone-Son ['jo:n sAn]
Thomas Weir: Traditional Towe [to:v] or Tomme [tAm], conser-
vative Tommas ['tAmm@s]. From Carsten's post, I deduce
that the surname pronounced /wE@(r)/, contrary to my
intuition of /wI@(r)/, so Veore [ve@r] or Vere [ve:r].
René Uittenbogaard: Traditional René [re'ne:]. The surname
is a tough one... :P Maybe Eitembogor [,eit@'bo:gAr]
or Uetembogor [,y@t@'bo:gAr].
Tristan McLeay: Traditional (it's from classical literature,
right?) Tristan ['triSt@(n)], shortened Trix [triS]
(though I recall you don't like that form). Probably
rather a rare name anyway. Triste is highly unlikely,
since it means "sad". McLeay: Macléi [m@'klej].
Another one I'd mispronounce for sure if I didn't know
Isaac Pensev: Traditional Isac ['i:z@x] or Isox ['i:zAx].
Unusual Pentsef ['pents@f], maybe Pentsen ['pents@].
Steg Belsky: What the heck kind of name is that anyway? ;)
If it's a variant of Stephen, see last post.
Otherwise, Tsege [tse:g] or maybe Tsec [tseC]. Then
again, Jervans are capable to pronounce initial [St]
thanks to German influence, so maybe Stec [SteC] is
possible, albeit clearly foreign. If you prefer [E],
how about Tseoc [tsEx]. Belsky: Beosci ['bESki].
