    Olympic Joke
    Guy is seen walking across the Olympic Village with a long, thin, fiberglass shaft in his hand.
    Girl asks him, "Are you a Pole Vaulter?"
    He answers, "No, I'm from Germany...and how did you know my name was Walter?"

    As in the "wh" blend, I think either are acceptable, but the Wal-th-er is more a Queen's English dialect (you sound more like James Bond).

    It isn't "proper", since Carl was German.

    Walther is easy. Try saying Česká zbrojovka! I just use CZ, anyone important knows what I'm talking about.

    Good question actually, though personally I don't care. For the record I just say "Walter" and so far everyone knows exactly what gun I was talking about. I don't get too caught up in the pristine pronunciation of every word.

    I remember a skit on SNL once where a new member of some corporate team was hispanic, so all of the other people there felt obligated to start pronouncing any spanish-based word with a strong spanish accent and emphasis. For example, "I think I'll have some "ench...i...laaadaaas" today for lunch".

    BTW, I like going to different areas of the US and listening for the regional accents of our American language. I, of course, have no accent, but everyone else I hear does.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Well, "Walther" at least. Nobody's dumb enough to not appreciate how to sound out three-letter acronyms. I mean, we need to draw the line somewhere, yeah?
