Christian Kästner

My last name Kästner is pronounced [ˈkɛstnɐ], audio. It is a quite common German last name, well known for the author and poet Erich Kästner. The umlaut ä is relevant for the pronunciation. The valid ASCII spelling is Kaestner, not Kastner. To correctly typeset the name in LaTeX use K{\"a}stner. To create the ä in Windows enter 0228 while pressing the ALT key or simply copy it from this page. [close]
