To Change my name or not to Change my Name
When any of you read my name out to yourself (if you ever had any reason to), do you say..."Oh, thats Hmmph..or something like that" Or, do you say, "Oh, thats h-n-m-n-f."

Very important question

3. I pronounce it in my head something along the lines of
"hem and hoof" which I know makes absolutely no sense whatsover.

16. LOL! I don't know why....
but your answer just made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that!

As for the OP, I guess I never pronounced it in my head before. Now, however, I shall hear "hem and hoof" when I see your name. ;)

26. I think of it as pronounced "hnnf,"
with the lips closed and the "h" aspirated through the nose.
