Milowicki - meelovitzkee OR:


Explanation:
IF the l in the surname has a diagonal slash across it, then pronounce it as:

Meewovitzkee

the difference is "l" in Milowicki
and "w" in Milowicki (where "l" has this slash across it at mid-point).


hope it helps.

cheers,

Explanation:
The "i" vowels are long (as in "see"); the "o" is short and rounded (as in British English "lot"). The stress is on the last but one syllable. Depending on the exact spelling (whether the "l" is plain or has a slash or bar across it) it may be pronounced either "l" or "w".
