I have a French name. I can pass for Minard if I pronounce my name "mee-nahr" with a Clouseau accent rather than the broad Texan "my-ner" my family uses. The silent d makes the name French and apparently common near Bourges. Then again, my name is really Mlinar; my father changed from the Czech spelling some 50 years ago.
