It’s the only 12-letter word that I know of that has just two vowels.  And it’s the only word that I know of that has six consecutive consonants.

I’ve seen it spelled several ways and always wondered which was the correct.

Pfretschner? That’s correct isn’t it?

No, the way I and Jacob wrote it is correct. Even Germans struggle sometimes with the ‘z’ before ‘sch’ because it is never used like this in words only in a few names. 
 

(ex: Kretzschmann)

I have seen that spelling, but I’ve always wondered whether that was an acceptable alternate spelling, or it referred to a different family.

Now that I know the correct way, I’m sure I will still misspell it, but I will do my best
