Re: Does anyone know pronunciation of family name - Hergheligiu?

My mother-in-law's maiden name is Hergheligiu and the previous description of how to pronounce it is not quite right due to the fact that Romanians and English speakers pronounce Hercules differently. The best way I can think of to describe the pronunciation is as follows:

Her is like Hair, with a rolled r
ghe is like the ge in get
li is as you'd expect
giu is like jee-oo

the stress is predominantly on the ghe syllable, so you get

hair-GHE-li-jee-oo
