The Pronunciation of 'Koch'

A reader emails:
Would please advise me (and maybe your readers) as to how the oligarchic family Koch pronounces their name?
The former New York City mayor, Ed Koch, pronunces his name kotch.

The billionaire Koch family pronounces their name in the same way you would pronounce the slang for cocaine, coke.

  1. That would be the same way as the European Arms Manufacturer does: Heckler & Koch (coke)
