As a kid I always heard his name as "Schwarzer Neger" which translates as "Black Negro" (sorry!)

What's the matter with Louis de Funès?

Sometimes I struggle if Louis written with 'o' or without. And the 'è'. Does it go up or down? Then I look at it on IMDb and remember. ;)

Okay, I get it. It's a minor spell check but I can understand.

To me the name Mahershala is spelt very much like it sounds, so I wouldn't have a problem with it. What do others think?

Maybe the same applies to Priyanka Chopra.

Is it pronounced Pree-jankah or Pri-jankah? And Chopra like Koprah or Tshoprah?
Ok, Maharshala Ali may be a little easier. ;)

I can imagine that sentence:

"Shalom Mahershala my chum, here a charming Marshamallow while I chant "Shama Lama" with Shamalayan"

I see, you already have Pilou Asbæk in your list. :D
P.S.:
The S in Hounsou is written decapitalized. My bad.

Interesting that it is not so hard to spell his first name, though, right?

Actually, looking at it, I think I misspelled his first name too.  lol - Yeah, I did.  Adewale is what it's supposed to be.  Not Adewele.

I usually memorize the spelling and pronunciation, but often I do not know the pronunciation. I've had trouble remembering certain names on account of them being almost or just barely what could be considered a household names. Otherwise, names that are neither English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Polish, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Hebrew nor Hindi, can be difficult for me to remember how to spell, often because of the odd way that they may be "Romanized". I'm not sure of my comfort level with Greek, Russian and Algonquian; which for the latter, it would be odd to be uncomfortable, since I inhabit a region that used to be inhabited by people who spoke Algonquian languages, so tons of counties, roadways, lakes and rivers are named in Romanizations of names from those languages. The key thing to understand is that big names are like big words, in that big words are just sequences of little words.

I thought so, but the others could cause some trouble. Lucy Loo and Jean Renault, n'est-ce pas?

'Good idea and deciding on just one is as difficult as it is to spell some of these, which is why I'm not listing the ones most difficult for me,  : )

From your list I have in fact checked how to write Jake Gyllenhaal and would need to check on Arnold, Quvenzhané Wallis and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

You could probably fill the list just with Polish names but one that may be particullary difficult is the star of Ida: Agata Trzebuchowska 

I don't think he is considered famous in IMDb since he was a writer, but the Mexican name that I think would be harder to write is Jorge Ibargüengoitia
