Too confusing having so many good players in this country these days.

Well, there are hundreds of signs transcribed as "xie". However, by pure chance, the family name "Xie"/"Hsieh" and the word particle "xie" (as in "xie xie", "bu yong xie" ...) are the same sign: 謝

Julia should be simple: Yulia. Goerges is easy too: both "g" are hard (as in English get), and German "örg" is basically "erg" in English (like the pronounciation of English "Berg" (NOT American English, of course)). Her own dialect sounds like a North German dialect, so don't speak the "r", just modify/drag the vowel like many British dialects do.

Yulia Gergus.
