Reddit user posts pronunciation list for Louisiana last names

ide_r57zpkekmqwvjlpwrtad2ugdi4n9-lai-lg-1zaWho hasn’t struggled with a Louisiana last name? A user of the social news aggregation site Reddit recently posted a list with some of the more difficult-to-pronounce last names.

“I’m a sales executive for a company operating in New Orleans,” the user, Pompous_Pilot, said. “This is a name pronunciation list that was given to me on my first day.”

While most are right on, I’ve never heard Trahan pronounced “traw-haw.” Do any strike you as a little bit off?
