Not really all that peculiar.   The original Labuschagne name is from  France where the surname has died out.   All the descendants bearing that name - even those who have settled in other countries - descended from one person - Pierre Labuschagne - a Huguenot who managed to escape from France and whose brother was caught trying to escape and sentenced to be a galley slave.  The family name survived in SA through Pierre Labuschagne who eventually settled on a farm in what is today Paarl.

The original pronouncement of the name in French was "Labuschane"  which is still used by some descendants of Pierre Labuschagne as the way the surname is to be  pronounced.

There are many "Afrikaans" surnames that sounds very different from the original French.

Du Toit, for instance, sounds something like Du Twa.

Ceradyne

Some change in spelling of surnames also occurred  eg in the case of Rossouw and Pienaar.   Rossouw used to be spelt Rousseau by the French and Pienaar was Pinard. Some letters are not pronounce by the French when they appear at the end of words and names and the Dutch and other countries where Huguenots fled to played a role in changing the spelling of the surnames.  

Some like De Villiers is spelled the same and pronounced differently - in France De Villiers is pronounced "De Viljee".  The family in France is known through the previous Commander of the French army and his brother who was I believe a EU Parliament member - have not checked whether he still is. .
