Why are Champagne Names hard to pronounce?

Why is it so hard to pronounce champagne names? So many are mispronounced, even by people who think they know how to say them correctly.

Of course all champagne is made in France, so you would think some knowledge of French would help you out here, but this is not always the case.

You see, many old champagne families who set up their houses in Champagne did not originally come from France – they came from Germany, and one of the most famous is Dutch in origin!
