BEHNGKT in Swedish and English.
There was a boy that I knew in elementary through middle, even now in high school. His name, was Bengt, and he had one of the most common American last names ever, though I will not say it for the sake of his privacy. I told my dad about him and we would always laugh about how much of a weird name that is.

Sort of boring and old fashioned. My grandpa's name is Bengt.
It is pronounced "Benkt".
[noted -ed]
Sort of old fashioned in Sweden now, not common for boys born recently. Benke is a common nickname.
