The Gallery Of Regrettable Names

Seen in my mom's classroom: someone actually has saddled their child (girl?) with this monstrosity of a name:


(the "e" at the end is supposed to be accented)

Can anyone give me any insight as to how one might attempt to pronounce this?

It's one thing to name your girl "Siobhan" or "Xochitl" because those names are actually pronouncable, albeit in other languages. If this name wacky adventure in non-phonetic spelling made your short list of baby girl names, do us all a favor and name your girl "Vlgrexfs" instead, and pronounce it like "Jane".
