I always assumed 'chevrier' was pronounced shev-re-ay or shev-re-air, as it's a french surname I believe.

Edit: it's the 1st one.

I'm pretty sure they speak French in Belgium....though I may be confusing it with nearby Luxembourg, which has 3 languages.

There's no such language as 'Belgian'

Edit: Belgian people speak Dutch, French and German.

I'm sure 'Laurent' is a french name and pronunciation too.

Handiedan is not Handy Dan ...

http://phoneboothgallery.com/pbg/handie ... yan-milner


So I have to ask, how did you come by the name Handiedan? Does it has anything to do with your Dutch heritage?

It’s based on a little rhyme with my first name in Dutch. When I write emails or text messages I often end my messages with these kind of rhyme words and combinations. ‘Cheers van han dan’, (Cheers from Han than), ‘xx van han die dan!’ and ‘Han says hi!’

Han = my name, the short version of my first name.
die = that
dan = than

In English I know it’s a little confusing. People often think I am a guy, because they read ‘Handy Dan’ or something, but in Dutch it is actually a funny little rhyme.
A little help in pronouncing my name: During my visit in Long Beach I found out that you can pronounce my first name just like the Jewish Holiday ‘Hanukkah’. Or you can say ‘Heineken’ but than with an ‘Hah’ in the beginning. What cool things you can do with a typical Dutch name, right?

They speak French in Belgium. LD pronounces it like they do in Otomo's video. But being from south louisiana, I say dur-oh. Since everything with an eaux on the end we say as "oh"

The one that has always confused me on how to pronounce is Eelus
