Notes: Gruffudd on the pronunciation of his name-- "I'm determined not to lose my name. It's who I am. It has neither aided my progress nor hampered it. My culture and heritage is a very rich one. So what if it's difficult for people to pronounce? We all learned how to say Schwarzenegger." [icwales.icnetwork.co.uk]
