Is Letzeburgesch not accepted? (or did I accidentally spell it as Letzeburgisch?)

And for other commenters no I am not trying to be fancy, yes it ís the first thing I came up with and no Luxembourgish didn't cross my mind. Only thought I had was I must be spelling it wrong but couldnt figure it out. Also tried Letzebuergisch

I agree... the second one I tried was Luxembourgeois (also not accepted). I can't help feeling that "Luxembourgish" is just a word made up for people who can't be bothered to spell Letzebuergesch. Which, to be fair, could pardonably be most people

Whether you agree it was Holy...or Roman...or even an Empire, it was definitely NOT the same thing as the Roman Empire.

I didn't realize that "Ardennes" had an "s" at the end so I kept trying "Ardenne" to no avail :P

could Ardenne be accepted given it's a variant in English, and is used in French and similar forms in other languages?
