This reminds me of when Toni Lydman played for Calgary. Everyone pronounced his name like "Lid-Man" even tho the proper Finnish pronunciation is "Lood-Man"

The proper Finnish pronunciation is not "Lood-Man".

It's Lüd-man, with an "ü" sound.

Lood is not any closer than Lid.

So, not lood, but lood? You've gotta use English letters to explain that sound to an English speaker.

Oh, so that's where the goofy Lood-man pronunciation came from: someone must have written "ü" and an english speaker decided to disregard the "¨" sign and read it as 'oo'

That sound does not exist in English (to my knowledge). No English letter will do. It's equivalent to the French "u".

Lid-man was reasonably close, going to Lood-man instead is just stupid. Even more so in French, btw, because French does have the "ü" sound.

That is awesome.

Only reason I won't change it is because you deserve the credit.

Ouellet is a very common surname in Canada (esp. Quebec) so people shouldn't be misspelling it.

"LUHD-man" seems to be about as accurate as I can think would fit.
