"Gordon Smith here. My name is pronounced "Gore-done" sometimes pronounced "Gord-un" which is Okay. I have had women call me "Gord-on" you can figure that out. Drives me nuts when people misspell Gordon, e.g. Gorden, Gordan. The Italian version is "Giordano" which like a lot. My surfing buddies call me GDog, the wahines call me GDoggy, and the French girls call me "Jee-dough-gee". There ya go!" Oct. 12, 2007:
