In Japanese, that's shiーruke (long vowel on the 'i'). But the name is originally German. In German, I think it would sound like "shi.rke" or something close (our German members are invited to correct me if I'm wrong).

You're correct. I don't know how to lay it out phonetically, but it sounds somewhat like this : sh - eer - keh. (pronounced more rapidly, of course)
For the record : I'm not German, but I do speak it and live very near the country.

Well, I have seen some guy spell it like this: "Schierke".
At that is actually a German name.
Pronounciation....ehm... sounds very much like English "silk" + short "a".
(They have neither a hiragana nor a katakana sign for "si".....)
(Might be subscripted to "shi"...)

Hell, if someone knows better, please tell^^.

The only correct spelling is Schierke. Whatever other spelling you had in mind was automatically corrected by the board to the correct spelling. :SK:

At that is actually a German name.

Schierke is a famous witch-related town in Germany.

I think all that needed to be said was said before your post. :serpico:
