    I have never heard of this name before. I doubt if anyone I know could say for sure how to pronounce it.

    I did a Google on "Herhold" and found that some television news anchors could not pronounce it either but no information on its actual pronouciation.

    How do you pronounce unfamiliar surnames then? A surname you're looking at for the first time?
    How do you write surnames if hearing them via the phone?
    Someone calls and tells you: This is Lewis. How do you know it is Lewis, not Louis, not Le... well, you understand me.

    Thanks for your efforts. I'd like to know first of all, if the second "h" silent or not.

    Russian is so much easier in this regard: you'll hardly make mistake wriring Dumas, Vercace, Peugeot or something like that.

    I would just have to guess....like everyone else.

    Yeah, I was wondering whether or not the second "H" was silent too!

    It looks like a german surname. The german letters with umlaut like [b]
