Hi everyone,

I am an American (3rd generation Polish) trying to figure out the correct pronunciation of my last name:

"Szurszewski"

In English, is it closer to "Shur shev ski" or "Shor shev ski"? (Shur vs. Shor; u vs. o sound)

Thanks a bunch.

Szurszewski"

easy...

it's exactly like saying the words: SURE (more accurately, SHOOR), CHEF, SKI (as in skiing)... put them together and say it fast.... the only difference from english pronounciation would be the rolled 'r'... but it's ok for english speakers to ignore it. :)
