The Name: En-ri!-que vs. Richard

Post by Erro Etminuo » Aug 11th 2004, 2:53 am

In Self-Esteem, I've always thought the scene between Rickie and Mr. Katimsky in the hallway (gettin Rickie to sign-up for the play) was very funny. The whole thing with the name is hilarious, but it's true, Ricky is a variant of Richard and really Enrique in English is Henry, so I don't blame Rickie for not wanting to be called Enrique and Mr. Katimsky being a "Dork" I can see why Rickie gets flustered when Richard compares his name to Rickie's. I knew plenty of Enriques in school, but we called them "Kiki."

Ah, the 'H' is silent. I wondered about that; thanks for the clarification.
