Gili Bar-Hillel danced around singing:
>If you think THAT'S impossible to pronounce, my roommate's surname was 
>"Ng". No vowels. You should have heard her trying to order pizza.

That's pretty common in Northern California, though I can't remember which 
nationality uses it.  Is it pronounced "ing" there, too?
