I lived in France for 7 years and French can't say "th" so my name was pronounced Matchoo. When I came back to England I told people & they carried on calling me it & eventually got shortened to Choo which I don't mind coz there's 2 of us who hang out both called Matthew. The Irish side of my family call me Murphy for some strange reason!
