Jun-11-19  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Dusan correctly in Serbian — <Du¹an> — is pronounced <DOO-shan>, which i suppose is known to English speakers.

I am Slovenian and in Slovenia we also have male name Du¹an with the same pronounciation as Serbs, so it is common here.

The point of a pun <DOO-shan don'ts> is unclear to me. Maybe as: - DO (as verb 'do' in English which is pronounced the same as 'doo') - SHAN (as mountaion in Chinese)
- DON'TS (as shorter for 'donuts' in English)?

So to conclude:
"You better climb on mountains carrying donuts"
or "Go on mountains and don't forget donuts"
or in case don'ts remains as it is:
"Do mountains or don't do mountains, that is the question now".

Tough pun, indeed.

Jun-11-19  Ratt Boy: <Autoreparaturwerkbau>: In English, we'd pronounce it "Doo-Zan". So "Dusan don'ts" sounds like "do's and don'ts". As in, "Here are ten do's and don'ts about Social Media"¡Xi.e., things that you can DO, and things that you DON'T do. Hope this helps.

  morfishine: <Ratt Boy> Nice try to save another failed effort for a game title because someone forgot to check about pronunciation

Darn

It doesn't matter how the "English" think how to pronounce it, the only thing that matters is how its really pronounced: Doo shan

When you are talking names, there's only one pronunciation

Hope this helps

Jun-12-19  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Ratt Boy>, many thanks for the explanation, at least i understand what pun-maker had in mind.

Yet, as <morfishine> well elaborated, every language can have an own idea of personal name pronounciation, but only one is the true one. Mother tongue, original. I would cherish if CG.com would appreciate international crowd here by acknowledging how names are originally pronounced.

Surely this would further improve users' knowledge about chess players.

As a funny side note about the topic. I still remember a pun using Péter Ács (Peter Acs). The pun-maker ment his surname to read as an "axe". Anyone familiar with Hungarian was unable to understand the pun, of course, since Ács is pronounced as "AA-tch".
