Is actually pronounced SHMAWL.
Sounds like "shlemiel". Ever heard of it? It's the yiddish word for a klutzy guy who always slips in public.
This is a very common name in religious Jewish communities after the prophet Shmuel (Samuel) in the Bible.
This is the name of the Jewish boy that Bruno befriends in the book 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.'
This name sounds really weird and stereotypical. It also reminds me of that sanctimonious rabbi with a similar type of name. You know, the one who talks about celebrities, like he really knows the story behind why they're not like conventional people. He can't read minds, and he's not a real shrink, now is he?
Pronounced shmoo-ehl.
