Pete Peeters. It's a fine name when used once, but twice? Boutros Boutros-Ghali anyone?

Again.

Pierre Houde asks each and every player how to pronounce the name correctly. He says every name the way it should be pronounced.

Earlier this year, they said Vebere for Weber. The game after, they asked him, and they said during the game that Weber wanted it to be pronoucend Weber. And they started to say it correctly.

Stanislav Neckar, supposedly pronounced "Nex-cash"... seems like a massive fraud.

Long vowel sounds are just naturally chuckle-inducing, especially several in the same word. It's human nature to find these hilarious.

Wally Weir always made me laugh.

English surnames with french last name make me laugh too. Carolina has a pretty good collection with :

Chad Larose
Rod Brind'amour
Pete Laviolette
