    you want to transliterate, I guess.

    That Arabic 'kh' is a kind of guttural sound, a bit like a phlegmatic English 'h' (though it's even closer to the French 'r' Mr. Ebersole drummed into me for three years in high school), so Hahn isn't an entirely off the wall way to spell it in English.

    Ok, I'll take off the nerd hat, now...

    •  Thanks for making me (none)
      appear a little less ignorant. I was transcribing off the audio track and Hahn was my not very informed way to represent the sound. At the time I figured it looked wrong, but I can't Google everything. ;-)
