What "Lamoureax" means
Posted by: John (ID *****3161) Date: December 20, 2004 at 03:10:18

There is a young woman in my institute class in whom I have recently taken interest... her last name is Lamoreaux. In concordance with my obsession with language, I looked up a few things about the name. I slowly realized that, in French, "L'amour" means "love", and "eaux" means "waters".

LAMOUREAUX MEANS "THE WATERS OF LOVE!!!"

Isn't that tremendously romantic?

Tell everyone in your family!
