    Anyone know how to properly pronounce Lærke? It looks like such a cool name! I love European tastes in names so much more than American.

    I would embark on a phonetic explanation, but then I found a forvo pronunciation (http://www.forvo.com/word/l%C3%A6rke/).
    It's the Danish word for a lark
