Who needs a full paragraph? Not me

If I ever fell in love with a man named Frank, Henry, or Roger, I would have to move to Paris & learn French just so his name would sound better.

You could convince them to change their names, but then you wouldn't have a reason to visit Paris.

That seems reasonable.

I love Henri, but what is Roger in French? I'm sort of uncertain about Frank too. (I never took French and once tried to pronounce dejuner to my husband as d'JOON-er). Talk about a wake-up-call.

Haha, that was great.

You are a genius. There are definitely certain names that should only be given to children if you vow to stay in or move to a certain country.

I'm kind of bummed out, I keep falling for men with lousy names. Peter (also means p*nis), Omar, Adam. BORING and just plain weird.

psh.

I fully agree. Hey little bird, I have a Rudy and a Jurjen in my little black book... I feel your pain. Also a handful of boring Dave, Mike and Chris's.

Lovely :) although are you suggesting Frank doesn't sound great in English? Be careful now... I have a very cute 3 year old nephew called Frank... although I must admit I was a bit surprised when they chose that name.

There is a kid in my son's daycare named Henry. Since my kid is only two he can't say it very well...it always comes out like "Henri" with a French accent. I love it!

Ha, ha!!

Hey, I wonder what those names sound like in languages other than French? Just trying to give you more options...
