Lets be honest, were all from the internet and barely and of us know eachother in person, so we most likely screw up their last names, heres a thread where you can sound it out and make sure people know it :)

Always wondered about some GPROer names, still a bit difficult to explain for foreign names, anyway

['fraŋko] that should be the right phonetics letters

Dei you pronounce it like Day

Cas... well... like Cat but with a S at then instead :P

Flo-re-an (not aen)

tzä(e)hr-mann (not aen)

a is always pronounced like a-rstray :) and twice nn means the a is short.

In english it is:

Flo-re-an

Sir-man :)

Eheh :) That's the closest i can get at explaining it, i'm thinking of other english words that may sound like that, but nothing else comes into my mind.

Not really sure how the c sounds in polish :P

We should actually record the pronunciation and put it online, it would be fun to hear other GPROer voices :D
