    I'm originally from Germany, and although my first name doesn't have any diacritical marks, my last name has an umlaut over the O. I've never even met anyone who knows what an "o with two dots over it" means. And it isn't on ANY of my official documents in the US. However it is on all of my German official documents including my birth certificate and passport. Although technically my last name would be spelled with an OE if it doesn't have the umlauts the US doesn't recognize this either as on my birth certificate it just has an 'O.' Honestly it's a mess and really frustrating that my last name isn't actually my last name. I do sign everything with the umlaut, but I'm sure nobody notices or knows what it means.
