    I can understand that, but you may want to reconsider. That's not an easy name to go through school with.

    it'll be ok - they'll just call him "Loddy". You know, like "Wolfie".

    I think it's pronounced, "Lood-vick".

    The Americanized version is pronounced Ludwig. The European version sounds more like Lode-a-wick. Replacing the "w" sound with a "v" sound is also acceptable.

    Hope it helps !


    Sup Hatch ? !

    Man, the hall was rocking ! At least for the video segment ! WTF set in during VR. But the majority of the crowd were VH fans so the nice coctail party turned quickly into a rock concert once the VH segment started. Then the polite golf applause seen most of the night turned into screams, chants, and jamming ! It was a trip !

    The Dutch do not pronounce the 'W' as a 'V' (maybe the germans are)
    So its Lode-a-wike

    That's not correct. The Dutch "w" is pronounced the same way as in German and sounds like an English "v". So, EVHWolf's pronunciation was right, it's "Lode Ah Vike"; the German variant (Ludwig) would be pronounced "Loot Vic".

    I asked a friend of mine at work who was born in Holland how to pronounce it, and he said it's LODE-AH-VIKE, "v" sound.
