Name barbarisms

A bit more than half the people in our lab aren't from Anglophonic
countries, and it's interesting to note how the USA members pronounce
their names.  Our PI invariably pronounces the names according to what he
can work out as the US English norms method from the spelling of the name.
Other people instead hear the name and slide it into the closest US
English sounds.  Thus, "Anders" is called /'&n-drz/ by our PI and
/'an-dIS/ by other members of the lab.
