The Briscar name is easy to pronounce, although some people have trouble with it.  The simple pronunciation is Briss-Car, with the accent on the briss.  Not too many years ago there was a different pronunciation.  With its Eastern European origins, the original pronunciation was Breesh-Car. The name, like so many European names, easily became Americanized.

When John (grandfather) first came to the U.S. from Europe he spelled his name Briskar.  Many people had difficulty with the spelling and would substitute the K with a C on his pay check, mailings, and other documents.  He decided to make things easier for everyone and in the late 1930's he legally changed his name to John Briscar.
