Guess I should have assumed that stupid Americans would have gone phonetic instead of actually learning how to spell things correctly.
Do you do that with every name? Why just apply that "original spelling in XXXXXXXX" theory to this name?
I looked up Matt's last name and found this:
"The son of Hugh. Aventinus derives Hugh from Hougen, that is, slasher or cutter. Alfred, in the year 900, used Hugh to denote comfort. Hugh in the Gaelic, is Aoidh, which signifies affability, a guest, a stranger. Hu suggests the idea of elevation; Ho, Hu, highness"
Why not just apply that thought process to everyone's last name.
@ flo.....I agree, I remember hearing that a member of Team Punishment (I think it's funny that Tito won't wear any of the Tapout stuff) will be going home. I'm just wondering why Rich isn't (or at least it hasn't been mentioned).
