"Dotterweich" is, obviously, a german name; I was wondering if anyone could give me the correct pronunciation.Thanks!

An interesting surname, indeed. Translates "soft as yolk." The pronunciation is DOtehvaikh, the kh representing a fricative shaped between rear part of tongue and gum. Hard to describe, foreigners usually fail on this.

What aboutDO-teh-vaikhDO (with the stress) - like in DOnovanteh - like TEnnisvai - like in VAIs / vice presidentkh - impossible to transcribe as this sound does not exist in English
