Yeah, his name is normally written with cyrillic letters and to write them in western languages they use different transcripts that will mimic the sounds of how his name is pronounced in Ukraine in the language.

For Shevchenko "Shevchenko" is not his name. It's just the English transcript of his real name. In Holland his "name" is Sjevtsjenko (I think that's the same as in Swedish btw...). In other countries, such as Spain I'm sure his name should be spelled in a completely different way...

But with English being the dominant language of the world more and more will write his name as Shevchenko to simplify things. We often see that spelling in Swedish media although if it was to be pronounced using Swedish pronouncing rules his name would sound not at all as it should sound. The Swedish "tj" sound is more or less the same as the English "ch". The swedish "ch" is "softer"...

Or something like that. I'm not a language expert... :eek:

His real name is Andriy Sevcenko. I don't know if you have the letter, but in Ukraine it's Ševèenko. But it's pronounced the same as Shevchenko.

Btw., my post was not arrogant in any way, but the Sjevtsjenko thing killed me :)
