Unpronounceable surnames

with one comment

There is a list of surnames (and anecdotes) here.

Reminds me of the joke (no point telling it like a joke now) of the Polish guy who goes to get an eyesight test, is asked if he can read the writing, reads

C Z W I X N O S T A C Z

, and informs the doctor he actually knows the guy.
