    Would you really like it so much if his name was "Raphael of the Fountain"...?

    I wonder what Jussie Smollett must be thinking of his Instagram "come-out"... ("Get back inside right now"...?)

    Sounds cool, I think it's part of the foreign charm. What Toni said makes sense, it definitely sounds weird if we go The Fountain route, however it's not the case.

    But, again the foreign charm, what if it sounds like a French Raphael La Fontaine?

    Maybe he's coming out as "queer" instead of gay.

    I just can't get behind it.

    But that´s the way I get it when I hear it. It´s like the Flores family on WC Die-nasty. Would you really like a character called "Crystal Flowers"? Because that´s the translation into English...Besides, there´s a very famous family of flamenco singers in Spain with that last name, Flores...Go figure...:re:

    Sorry, still don't understand what you mean. It's all about the sound of it, not how it translates in whatever language.
    Liz Taylor in dutch is Lies Kleermaker...I'm just saying.

    Don´t worry, it´s ok. I wonder if English speakers know how names like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jake Gyllenhaal, or the infamous Matthew McConaughey sound like in other markets, eg the Latin-American and Spanish ones. Hard to pronounce, impossible to write.

    Cristal Flowers sounds like someone I want to beat up.

    Just for the record, this was also the name of a very OTT (like all of them...) South American telenovela back in the 80s, "Cristal". I think it was aired in the mornings, replacing "Dynasty" ("yes, this was used as a filler in Spain..." - Miss Piggy says...). Watch (if you dare) a little sample of that "Cristal" thing...

    Rafael De La Fuente De La Juventud would have been even better.

    "Forever Sammy Jo" perfume?

    Cristal's mother (in this soap) resembles Original Alexis.
