Hey all your German speakers, I am doing a presentation tomorrow about the dawn of the jet age. What is the proper pronunciation for Hans Von Ohain's last name. Is it Von O-hayn, like rain, or O-hine, like wine? Or is it something else? I want to pronounce it correctly.

Thanks in advance!
Im sure old Adler,Erich or co will come up trumps Eric
My German is a bit limited too
Das Computermaschine ist nicht fur Finger-poken und mittengrabben.
Ist easy schnappen der springwerk, blowenfusen und poppencorken mit spitzensparken. Ist nicht fur gewrken bel das dummkopfen. Das rubber-necken sightseeren must keepen hands in das pockets relaxen und watch das lights ger-blinken.

Somehow I dont think it's quite right though. :rolleyes:
probably late but it should be: O-hine (with attraction on the first letter - O - try to prononce it "long")
