surname pronunciation, guide to surname pronunciation

Correct pronunciation is quite rightly no longer restricted to what is called Received Pronunciation, but some guidance may be necessary for the pronunciation of surnames, place names and titles.

The archaic pronunciations have not always developed at the same pace as our language, and this can cause confusion. Surnames of course belong to people, and not troubling to find out how someone traditionally pronounces his or her name may cause offence.
