Conversely, some Europeans treat an American mispronouncing a name as a
topic of conversation (witness this thread).

To be fair, the invidious "European/American" distinction playing in this thread was introduced by me, an American, when I noted how interesting it was that the Muench family has somehow managed to keep their umlaut (in some form), unlike so many Americans. (My family kept our vowel, but lost one of the consonants in the shift from German to American English, which is why my name rhymes with "sneeze" not "treats".) Americans are constantly telling each other how to pronounce our names.

And the Europeans have been very patient with us (at least on this list!), to say nothing of all those kind souls who claim other geographical/cultural allegiances.

After all this, I agree that unless we can design an XSLT-based solution to solve this problem (perhaps an optimizing compiler should recognize the idiom and play a sound file saying "it's pronounced 'Minchian' grouping"), we should get back on topic.
