<P><BR>French meteorite names I dont really have problem with (took french for almost 8 years). Speaking of which, i have heart many people refer to the St. Roberts meteorite by saying well how it looks. You actually have to put the french accent on it and say it as St. Ro-bear. Quebec is funny that way. :-)<BR></P></DIV>

<DIV></DIV>&gt;What about that wonderful Welsh meteorite, Pontlyfni (did I spell that
<DIV></DIV>&gt;right? I don't have my little blue book in front of me, so there's a good
<DIV></DIV>&gt;chance I destroyed it) Any Welsh speakers out there want to give it a go?
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Arabic and Spanish and Portuguese and French meteorite names aren't the
<DIV></DIV>&gt;only ones that will tie your tongue in knots!
