That's a very broad statement!

Not being European or French, yes. The last name I think I could do but the first name I've little clue on how to say that correctly.
"Not being European"?

What the... fuck? Do you think we magically know how to speak other people's languages? Italians, Germans, British, Spaniards, we all automatically know how to speak French?

And "Laetitia", it's just "Letitia" with a slightly different spelling. Are you seriously telling me that you can't pronounce "Letitia"?
The "ae" threw me off, further knowing she was French so I was partly expecting different use of letters and sounds.

As for the European thing, I just generally think that being a multi-lingual part of the world people living in Europe may have more exposure and familiarity with the French language. So, excuse me, for not living in an area where I get to hear French a lot and know how to speak French-inspired names.
LOL, what do you think Europe is? Germans speak German, French speak French, the Brits speak British, the Spanish speak Spanish, Italians speak Italian.

That's like presupposing that every American can speak Spanish just because there are so many of them crossing the border.

JarodRussell has never met a European with a mixed background I suppose.

(Also learning foreign languages is much more common in Europe than it is in the US but I suppose JarodRussell never bothered?)

Considering you don't even know the name of the English language, I think you should probably refrain from being too smug with your criticism.

If Americans can speak American (English), then the British can speak British (English).

That's the reason you never see a model shot of her openly smiling. She's always sultry or enigmatic. Must have some Brit in her bloodline.

Kidding! But only just.

Fantastic otherwise.

Cool, how many languages do you speak?

I'm stuck at 5 for now but working on number 6.

ETA: Crap, I forgot Latin and Old Greek but I don't really count those. So I guess I'm working on number 8.

Not a damn clue who she is and she has an unpronounceable name.


Laetitia Casta in unpronounceable?
Not being European or French, yes. The last name I think I could do but the first name I've little clue on how to say that correctly.
It's not difficult :

Two and a half. But, of course, the point was that the United States is a multilingual country, and there's no such language as "American."

Some would argue that in America we speak "Americanized" English since we've a little bit of difference between the English spoken in England. Not so different that they're both different languages but there's some subtle differences that there could be confusion. I've seen more than one form that under the language section there's "English (Britain)" and "English (American.)"

And while we may be a multilingual country that doesn't mean we're a multilingual people, having such a vast area. I only speak and know English and have little need to speak anything else, though I do know a little bit of Spanish.

I, personally, see most of Europe as being more multilingual than America. Now certainly this doesn't apply to everyone just like the obverse isn't true for America but I just suspect a person living in GB is going to be more likely to encounter a French-speaking person with a French-version of a name than I, a person living in Kansas, is.

Knowing the pronunciation of the name now, yeah I have met people with that name, but it's spelled Latisha and it's usually an African-American woman. So having never seen the BOW's name before (or rather that spelling of it) and knowing she was French, and knowing some of the peculiarities of the French language I didn't confidently know how to say "Laetitia." If it was a written name I saw on a name-tag at a party or something I'd have to ask how to pronounce it, thus making the name "unpronounceable" to me.
