Donkey Shot, always got me, it literally took me several years to work that one out.
Names, well, some sound better in french like Agnes and Herbert. Some don't. What about this confusion for me, called at a friends and her son was there, who told me his sister had had a daughter and given her an english name. Ee lene. I kept asking him to repeat it and assuring him that it was not 'english' when I asked him to spell it, he said Eileen. Hmmmmmmmm what could I say, I personally prefer the 'french' version.
Look at Hugh in french, sounds like someone is shouting out a japanese number as they choke.
Add to that all the diminutives in french and it's hard to know what people are called sometimes. I often get called by my diminutive name by french friends.
