Abby Sale Dick Gaughan pronunciation (36) RE: Folklore: Dick Gaughan pronunciation 18 Oct 09

Not actually as 'loch.' It's the soft guttural, well back in the throat and nearly unvoiced. That's why few non-guttural-language speakers can really hear it.

Stress on the first sylable.

In Edinburgh in years past we pronounced it Ga-hoon'.

OTOH, Dick doesn't care at all how you pronounce it.
