It’s McGuffin

Historically, people have always butchered my last name.  It’s pretty simple, and phonetic too… McGuffin.  Yet all my life it has been pronounced incorrectly.  Here are just a few of the variations:  McGriffin, McGruffin, McGaffin, McGuhhh, McGovern,  and so on.

I was in Ireland recently and had the opportunity to say or write my name on a daily basis.  Only one aurally-imparied lady got it wrong.  I guess that just goes to show you that the Irish and I have some common roots.
