Scottish Pronunciation - Ming Campbell
The z is on occasions silent in some proper names, eg Menzies = 'Ming-is', as was discussed here a fortnight ago.
I recall a footballer in the 60s called Alan Gilzean, to whom the above did not apply,
What other examples do people have of where the Z is silent eg
Culzean; Dalziel; Macfadzean; Finzean
