What’s In A Name – Part VI

Wednesday, 5 January 2011

Here are some more of the peloton’s riders with their names put into English. It’s a light-hearted exercise but the point, if there is one, is to show to any anglo-saxon readers that that if some names might be hard to pronounce, they aren’t exactly exotic.

Mauricio Ardilla – Mauricio Squirrel
Yukiya Arashiro – Yukiya Newcastle
Cyril Lemoine – Cyril The Monk
Sylwester Szmyd – Sylwester Smith
Yaroslav Popovych – Yaroslav Priestly
Albert Timmer – Albert Carpenter
Adrie Visser – Adrie Fisherman
Francisco Ventoso – Francisco Windy
Marianne Vos – Marianne Fox

What’s in a name – Part I
What’s in a name – Part II
What’s in a name – Part III
What’s in a name – Part IV
What’s in a name – Part V
What’s in a name – Part VI
What’s in a name – Part VII
