    What’s with the Van GO pronunciation? Listen here to hear just how wrong that is: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Van_Gogh

    • The American ‘Van Go’ is wrong but ubiquitous on the left side of the pond. The British ‘Van Goff’ is just as wrong. The occasional attempts of well-meaning Anglophones to say ‘Van Goch’ (to rhyme with loch) are less wrong, but still far removed from the Dutch pronunciation. It takes a Netherlander to wrap his head round the silly idea that the letter G should be pronounced as a rasp in the back of the throat.

      Anyone who says ‘Van Go’ might as well stick with it. They are going to be wrong in any case, and might as well have the advantage of being wrong in a simple way.
