*re: "Schando" for Alexander #austria-czech

No Doug, what you heard is not what you wrote.

Your mother called her brother Sandor (with an acute accent on the 'a'),
which is the Hungarian rendering of Alexander and is pronounced "Shandor",
the 'a' as in "argue"

Tom

My mother always refers to her brother Alexander (born Vienna, 1909) as
"Schando".
