I got the feeling that thanks to the Scottish voting more people now know what haggis is. On a different note: can you please accept "Canaries" for "Canary Islands"? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canary_Islands

So, "coin coin" is the least guessed answer. Maybe it would be easier if poeple heard how we pronounce "oin" in French ;). Oh, and Cousteau's first name was Jacques-Yves, we use some compound first names in French, so in his case Yves is not a middle name.

I had to sound out the "coin coin" for the answer. Only way I could have gotten it right.

At first I was saying it as in English and I came up with pig. Then I realized I should use the French pronunciation and it was obvious.

He was commonly known as just "Jacques" to most but peoples' names don't change when being spoken/written in a different language, (unless it's a different script, i.e. Arabic, even then it's pronounced roughly the same). Jacques-Yves is the proper answer.

He is indeed known as Jacques. However, just to clarify, "Jacques-Yves" is not "Jacques" in English. It's Jacques-Yves. The use of "Jacques" in this case is not a matter of translation, but rather a shortening nickname he somehow earned. It's not universal or even particularly common, in my experience. So if you meet another Frenchman named Jacques-Yves, its best not to assume he goes by Jacques.

For some reason I was thinking it was Couseau rather than Cousteau and I couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. *shaking my head at myself*

Alright, just to be really annoying and picky, but there is also a Westminster Cathedral so Westminster on its own shouldn't really be accepted as the answer.

Please correct the answer to Jacques-Yves Cousteau. French compound names aren't divisible like in some other languages.

OK I now checked in Wikipedia and it says "commonly known in English as Jacques Cousteau", so maybe it's actually correct for the purposes of this quiz, but it's really weird.

@kerrishh, names DO change depending on language; or else, you would be talking about Cristoforo Colombo, instead of Christopher Columbus

Totally agree. Jacques should be accepted, but Jacques-Yves should also and "Jacques-Yves Cousteau" should be the displayed correct answer as that was his name - not just Jacques. People could also learn something then! :)
