    I think most of us prefer it when people spell our names correctly.

    My aunt lives up in Morecambe and has spent her whole life in NW England and Scotland. When I talk with her it takes me about 30 minutes til I am getting most of the words. LOL WE are supposedly speaking the same language but I sometimes think that up north it becomes almost a dialect.

    Pete.... i would have spelled it "wotcher ea'in"

    Completely apropos of nothing eh ...... the archetypal Canadian accent is supposed to be in a town named quite aptly "Horsefly"

    Could do, but "wotcher" is ambiguous as it also means "hello, how are you?"

    Well, recently I was at a trade fair in Cologne, a visitor from the USA told me that he had a terrible time trying to get a taxi to Bonn.......Because he kept on saying that he had to go to Bahnn! (trying to transliterate the accent) and no taxi driver would understand where he had to go to...

    I was at a conference in Japan about 8 yrs ago. We had a table for 15 for dinner at a nice restaurant. It was an international conference and we had people at our table from Germany, Italy, France, Austria, Finland, Japan, Thailand, and probably some other places who all spoke English as a second language (it was the language of the conference). Amid all of the considerable accents and typical difficulties with English grammar, the only two who couldn't understand each other were the native English speakers from Ireland and Scotland. Our attention was drawn to this fact when (after a several libations) the Scotsman slammed his hands on the table and shouted "Wot er ye sayn man?"

    Yeah it's pretty sad when a guy doesn't know how to pronounce his name

    You wouldn’t believe the amount of people whom write Jamaha instead of Yamaha in their ads, and Buffet Grampon Yvette (@@@@@@rghhhh!) , while almost everybody gets Yanagisawa or Gemeinhardt correctly! Go figure!

    Kraslice ( Where Amati comes from) also proves to be a big challenge.

    Of course the nicest ads are the ones selling “ A saxophone” or “ A flute”.......on the other hand it is way better like that, if that is accurate, than calling an Oboe a clarinet and a sopranino recorder a piccolo or a metal clarinet a soprano sax (and viceversa).

    Well, , my very good friend from Leghorn, there you go, we all do things that others don’t understand, like, for example, I can’t believe that you have found the will to visit a thread that isn’t of any interest to you...........and yet!

    Be well!

    I own one, yet I can't spell Gemeinhardt without looking it up first. Occasionally near me you can find more "saxaphones" than "saxophones" for sale on craigslist. Bargains to be had from people selling like-new horns they bought for their kids who never practiced and promptly quit.

    Google hits:
    "Yanagisawa" = 1,070,000
    "Yanagasawa" = 369,000
    "Yanigisawa" = 221,000
    "Yanigasawa" = 84,400

    However, some of the alternative hits are no doubt for similar but distinct names that are correctly spelled.

    Of course the nicest ads are the ones selling “ A saxophone”
    "saxophone" = 12,200,000
    "saxaphone" = 3,000,000
