Will Kochs last name?

Thursday, September 12, 2002 12:01 PM

How do you say Will Kochs last name? I believe it is pronounced "cook", whereas my friend thinks it is "coke". I am relatively sure I am correct, I would just like to have it confirmed.

I answer to many things...my married name is pronounced WUR-nee.

My maiden name is Vayo. Rhymes with "mayo."

It's never easy...

Yeah, my last name is a trick too.

Then when people learn how to pronounce it, they misspell it.

Now all my mail comes bearing at least 10 different spellings.

The Holiday World family has an interesting last name...

Will Koch (and everybody else in his family) pronounces it "Cook").

The former mayor of New York City, Ed Koch, pronounces his name "Kaach".

The chairman of our Communications department, Steve Koch pronounces his name, "Coach".

Of course, Pat Koch was telling me that none of those pronounciations is exactly correct because the "ch" isn't quite pronounced "k", but we don't have that sound in the English language... 8-)

I didn't learn how to pronounce "Koch" until I met Jeff Seibert at PKI and he said that the Kochs know what they're doing. haha

So Paula is the queen of puns, eh?

1] NASA has decided that there will be cattle on the next space shuttle. They'll be the herd shot 'round the world.

2] An eagle tried to board a plane carrying his prey, two dead squirrels. The flight attendand stopped him and said "Sorry sir, only one carrion allowed."

3] Two Eskimos are out on a lake, fishing in sub-zero temperatures. In order to stay warm one lit a fire on the floor of their kayak. The fire burned through the hull and they sank into the freezing water and died. This proves you can't have your kayak and heat it, too.

Beat those, Paula ;-)
