    His dizzy aunt - Verti Gogh
    The brother who worked at a convenience store - Stop N Gogh
    The grandfather from Yugoslavia -  U Gogh
    His magician uncle - Where-diddy Gogh
    His Mexican cousin - A Mee Gogh
    The Mexican cousin's American half-brother - Gring Gogh
    And his niece who travels the country in an RV - Winnie Bay Gogh

    Do you know any more to add to the list?

    Wow Mark,
    Thanks for that very authoritative link, although I think that I may have to flag your post as being self promotional.

    Because at around 14 seconds, it mentions
    "Pompous, artificial, inflated, pretentious A***holes. lol

      He sure can! That is only the second person I have heard pronounce it. The other was a Dutch Australian painter friend. smileI still can't get my throat to cooperate well enough to say it! smile

        I lived in Holland for 8 years, so not a problem for me. this is the hardest w9rd in the Dutch language - and was a useful test during WWII to catch German spies - "scheveningen". The "sch" requires the throat sound with an "s" in front and the en is pronounced soft "a".

          I wish I had lived in Holland! I would be useless as a spy then! My dutch friends make sounds our lyre birds have trouble duplicating! smile
