    Mike Frezon is such an asset to this board; I thought we should know how to correctly pronounce his name. Is it 'M-eye-k' or 'M-ick'? [​IMG]

    Seriously, Mike. Is it 'Freeze-on' or 'Frey-zon'? Or maybe some other pronunciation.

    Am I the subject of discussion groups? [​IMG]

    Well, Jeff, since you asked (and keep my asset out of this)...

    It's (FREEZE-ahn).

    Origins: Dutch. My ancesters were Frisians. Came to NY from Flanders in the 1700s and the name became "Americanized" over the years.
