    Help me pronounce these names

    Hi teachers,

    I have quoted some names of English people from my English book. Please write their pronunciation with phonetic symbols to help me pronounce them correctly. There may be some names of places. I'll be very grateful to you.

    "Al", "Ole Anderson", "George", "Hirch", "Rappaccini", "Hawthorne", "Hemingway", "Chicago"


    Many thanks in advance.

    Why don't you have a go first. You might be right, and that will save one of us a lot of work.

    PS: Rappaccini is Italian. In English it could be /rapasini/. In Italian it's not.
