Re: T.H.U.G.S. Get Your CONNOR Fix Here!

Connor's wife, Ariana, is a Francophile (they got married in France). I think she speaks French and I think she has taught him some, but I've never heard him say anything in French.

Anybody else out there know for sure?

I found the interview where French was mentioned it was an on-line chat transcript on Startrek.com where Connor was asked if he spoke any other languages. His answer:

CT: I wasted money on 4 years of French in school, nothing against the French.

I got the impression from that he was either not very good at it or didn't get the opportunity to use it often, but if his wife speaks it, he's got plenty of opportunity to practice! Hadn't heard he could speak Spanish.

I don't think he speaks Spanish. They took a vacation to Spain a couple of weeks before he attended the Seatrek convention in 2007.

He commented during one of our dinners with him that he had problems because the Spanish apparently resent Americans who expect everyone on Earth to speak English, so even if they're fluent, they won't use English when speaking to American tourists.

Ariana made an effort to speak Spanish (presumably using Spanish/English dictionary or translation device) so she got along with them better than he did.

i have no proofs to prove that ( i'm not a genealogist ), but Ariana's name is Navarre. and, in France, Navarre is the name of an old area, located in south shared between France and Spain (that doesn't exist anymore). so we can conclude that she had some ancestor in France or Spain who immigrated in US and took the name of Navarre. so maybe she speaks a little bit french and/or spanish. in this case, she certainly learned some words to Connor.

As I understand it, Ariana Navarre is her stage name. She was born, I think, in California. And I'm pretty sure she doesn't speak just a little French, she's fluent.

Well, the fact that she chose the name Navarre is consistent with her interest in all things French.

I've learned something today. I had no idea that was her stage name. Don't think I have ever seen another name listed anywhere. Before seeing this, if I had seen a listing of them using her real name I would have thought he got divorced and remarried at some point.

Hadn't even considered that she used a stage name myself either. Isn't it strange how some actors/actresses change their name while others keep their birth name. So pleased Connor didn't change his, I love the name Connor, and Trinneer is so unusual, as is his middle name Wyatt (as stated on his imdb page).
