Bjarne Stroustrup is a Danish-born computer scientist and the College of Engineering Chair Professor of Computer Science at Texas A&M University.  He is most notable for developing the C++ programming language.  But many English speakers fumble at pronouncing his name. 

A rough English pronunciation would be "B-yar-ne Strov-stroop".  Or you can listen here to how Stroustrup himself pronounces his name.
