Huh?

I know that very very few people have control over their last name. What was perfectly OK in the past is not quite PC or down-right funny now a days. An example would be Dumass (pronounced dew moss).
We just hired a young lady in or office and her last name is Dumcum. I felt kind of stupid asking here how it is pronounced. It is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. I know that there is little if anything she could do but it just makes me smirk to myself when I see it. Maybe she could be like Hyacinth Bucket (who pronounces it bouquet).
