My brother teaches ESL. One of his students joined us for Thanksgiving. She is from Colombia. We had the following exchange:
"Your son, he has the most beautiful eyes.
"Thank you.
"What's his name?"
"Joaquin."
"How do you spell that?"
"J-O-A-Q-U-I-N."
"In Spanish, we also have a name spelled like that. But it sounds different."
"Oh, it's the same name. I just have a French accent."
