Wondering how to pronounce my name? I have a double first name “Hans Rutger” (no hyphen), “Bosker” is the surname. It’s pronounced /ɦɑns ˈʀʏt.xəɹ ˈbɔs.kəɹ/ in Dutch but for the less phonetically savvy among us, here’s Google pronouncing my name (with rather depressed prosody). But feel free to simply call me “Hans”.
