Hah. Im sure a french speaker finds the whole issue humurous even with out the unintended pun. The ease with which I can confuse a fellow english speaker by saying my name is "Yves with a Q" alone Im sure does it.

But I assure you I do have an ass, and have even been called one at various points.. ;-)

Also I wonder if this is a Parisian French versus Quebecois French thing. None of my quebecois speaking friends noticed the pun.... Or at least none of them told me about it...

    As hinted in my home node I live in Haute-Savoie. Being a Biker doesn't in any way make my humor more politically correct. ;-)

    Everything will go worng!

    Personally, I'd just assume that meant your name was spelled "Yvesq" (or possibly "Yveq"), which, given my understanding of French phonetics would probably be pronounced exactly the same as "Yves", since q is widely regarded as a consonant, and it has been my observation that consonants on the end of a word in French generally don't appear to have much if anything to do with the pronunciation. Indeed, I'd expect "Yvesailles" to be pronounced the same way as well.

    But, of course, I don't actually speak French, so maybe I'm just a confused English-speaker.
