But there might be people who don’t know that it’s an actual name (even if Benigni should be quite well-known) and mentally parse “Roberto” as “English name made Italian-sounding by adding an O at the end”.

Kinda like Briano or Donaldo, Johnno, Ralpho.

OMG, these are actually quite good suggestions! Accidentally :slight_smile:

Now I want to find a longer English name, and add an “O” at the end…

Donaldo O’Connor is really amazing :rofl:

Gabrielo O’Connor

Annabello O’Connor

Valentino O’Connor

Danielo O’COnnor

Nathanielo O’Connor

Manuelo O’Connor

Pierantonio O’Connor

Gwendolino O’Connor

Odoardo O’Connoro

BTW, Odoardo is a real name. Less common than Edoardo, but… 7 O’s in a name are quite a thing.

Yes, it’s impressive :smile:

Another one!

Work in progress… I still have to draw the horses and the contestants (and Mike Stallone) in it…

as for the pirate name… right now I’m considering “Mazzamauro O’Connor” :thinking:

I thought the original suggestions were just fine. Genarro O’Connor or something, or was that Giuseppe. :wink:

Yeah, I’ll probably settle on one of those :slightly_smiling_face: thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

I finally got the right expression for Mike Stallone :slight_smile:

Can you guys help me find a silly English altered name for Leonardo Da Vinci? In the Italian version, it’s “Leonardo Da Foggia”.

“da” means “from” in Italian. …

So what preposition is better? Is it better to name him “Leonardo Of (Somewhere)”…

Or “Leonardo From (somewhere)”?

And what can I pick for the “somewhere”? Some place that sounds silly? Like: “Leonardo From Bristol”… or maybe I can actually name him “Leonardo From Somewhere”? How does it sound?

Leonardo from Winners?

Nice :grin: But I think it wouldn’t be understood by English speakers :sweat_smile:

Yes.

Leonard(o) of Bristol is fine.

That sounds like “wasn’t Leonardo that guy from The Big Bang Theory?”

Thanks, so I’ll consider this :slightly_smiling_face: if I don’t find a funnier city name… maybe more ancient sounding …

You wouldn’t recommend it then? To actually call him “Leonardo Of Somewhere”?

possible variations: Leonardo Of Something , Leonardo Of Someplace, Leonardo Of Thatplace

I’d make it a touch less in your face, like “Leonardo of Thule” or perhaps more obviously “Leonardo of Yon” or “Leonardo of Yonder” if you really want to be obvious about it.

Unless the Donald Duck-type “Leonardo of Farawayistan” is what you’re going for. Then “Leonardo of Someplace” is fine. :stuck_out_tongue:

I really want to be obvious and Donaldduckesque, so I think I’ll pick “Leonardo of Someplace”… since you said it’s the better sounding of the last three… Thanks!

But Farawayistan is really interesting too… :thinking: I might use it for the home country of Mike Stallone :slight_smile:

That’s from (Dutch) Donald Duck btw: https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verweggistan

There’s also Afgelegerije (afgelegen = remote + ije like in Algeria). Something like Distantia in English I suppose, but then you don’t have the echo of a real place like Algeria.

I think Thule is still quite obvious though. It’s just the slightly more subtle version of Farawayistan. :slight_smile:
