That's the funniest thing I've heard in a while, your last name means nothing about what language you speak, up in the north we've got McIntyre, McGrath's Kenny's that speak only french with very little English, and last year for the Tigers in Jr. A we had a kid by the name of Cody LaFrancois from Quispamsis who spoke no french at all. The fact that someones great-grandfather was French means nothing to their descendants mother tongue. Most of my family was french, and deported to New Orleans, and came back to English communities and now the French names still remain, but very little french is in the family.
