Several names I've struggled with are...
- Franchot (-ought or -oh?) Tone
Miss G, when Dvorak was asked how to say her name, she told The Literary Digest: "My name is properly pronounced vor'shack. The D remains silent. I have had quite a time with the name, having been called practically everything from Balzac to Bickelsrock."

Menzies as in the Scottish male Christian name is pronounced 'Ming' crazy isn't it. The leader of the Liberal Democrats was called Menzies Campbell, I wonder how many times he has to correct mispronunciation.
