to be really anal about “Cú Chulainn”, I think the confusion arises from the way that the middle “ch” bit is supposed to be pronounced with a sound that is similar to the sound you make when you are about to haugh up a spit, like the Irish way of pronouncing “Lough” (scottish Loch). You shove the back of your tongue up so it nearly closes the throat and breathe out audibly. This generally seems to be very hard for people outside of ireland (and scotland) to do, hence it usually ends up being rendered as a “H” or a “K” when its actually a combination of the 2.
