How To Say My Last Name

There’s a reason why my website only uses part of my last name, it’s a mouthful. Don’t get me wrong, I love my last name. If you were wondering, yes it’s German. (Jesse was wrong, Germans are fun)


However, it’s very phonetic. You just have to take it slow. Nue(new)-nig-hoff. Easy and simple, right. Now, if you were trying to spell it, that’s usually a bit trickier. People tend to want to put the e before the u. DON’T DO IT. We will no longer be friends.

When my dad taught me how to spell our name when I was a kid he used the Mickey Mouse Song. You know: M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E.

We just replaced Mickey Mouse with Nuenighoff. Now, if you’ve been following long, you’ll realize that Mickey Mouse has one more letter than Nuenighoff. So, I just add and exclamation point onto the end: N-U-E-N-I-G-H-O-F-F-!

There, you’ll never forget how to spell my last name, or say it, ever.
