well I'm german so I pronounce it that way Wink having a little trouble knowing which of your options would sound like mine (phonetics are not my strong suit). I'm guessing number 6 would be the way I say it. "Fuchs" means fox by the way.

The "fooks" in #6 rhymes with "spooks," "dukes" and "pukes," if that helps. Wink

And isn't Heidi a fairly common girls' name in Germany too? Perhaps Miss Fuchs there is a Sim-German woman who was born in Sim Japan by mistake. Big Grin

yeah I think it's number 6 then. Well Heidi Klum is german and there's a swiss childrens story whose main character is Heidi which is quite famous too in germany (used to have the book as a child and watch it on tv). I think it was fairly common in the past probably having a comeback like most of those names but I'm not up to date on common names in germany (I'm quite isolated), don't think I know or ever knew anyone in real live with that name though.
Pretty sure the swiss story of Heidi had a japanese anime so maybe your Sim sprung out of that Tongue

I just went for a walk last night, through Berlin, very busy part of the city what did just run by me? A "Fuchs" haven't seen one here in at least 10 years... think it's your fault Wink

Definitely Number 6. Note that I changed all of the names of the Sims in the Far East Vacation Location to Chinese Names. I like to name my sims Heidi and I will have to look to see if I have any Fuchs in my Playables, I checked and I have an Alison Fuchs and an Edward Fuchs in different households. I think I will make sure to keep their last name going and then have a Heidi Fuchs sometime soon.
