it's just that it's unpronounceable to most of you.
I'd like to give it a go... but I'd really need to look up how to say those wierd letters... "ae" and letters with circles attached.
I'm an American and Americans can't even pronounce my name. I don't mind saying it cause it is a commonish name. Clara.
Yeah, that's strange... I've noticed that a lot of Americans can have trouble saying the word "Mirror", instead of saying it with a distinct double sylable "mi-ror", they tend to say something that sounds like "meer".
Not all Americans do that of course, but a good few that I've heard do.
Is it a similar thing with your name I wonder? A little issue that some people have with sylables, "L" and "r" sounds in certain combinations...?
That wouldn't be unusual, like the Chinese and Japanese have issues with "l" and "r" in English.
I've noticed that I myself slip into lazy "Australian" pronounciations of some words, where certain sylables and sounds are blurred, and so sound different to the norm.
