I can easily see some jokes arising from the French name.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

I prefer the English name. But considering Blacky won, I see the French name winning this round.

This contest has lost all credibility if the French name wins for the reasons I'm thinking of.

Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.

"Quappo" sounds like what someone says when they're disappointed.
"Aw, Quappo."
