Does anyone know what nationality the name Baudelaire is? I thought it sounded German or something like that. Is Jacques German? I thought it was French. Oh, well. I don't think the Baudelaires live in the USA. I think they live in Europe. Why? I am not exactly sure why I think that? Little things like the Finite Forest which made me think of the Black Forest in Germany. Klaus sounds like a German name to me. Baudelaire is quite obviously a European descent name. Then there is the Count. When I think of a count, I don't picture one in America. You usually hear about Counts and Countesses in Europe. I know there is a beach but there beaches in Europe, too. I also remember Klaus mentioning buying a castle. That made me think of the castles in the UK. I could be wrong. But I think that they started out in either England or France and they have been shuttled all over Europe. When you think about it, Europe is a smaller country than America. I think that is how he has been able to find them so quick. The countries are a hop, skip and a jump from each other. But I could be completely wrong. Sorry, just speaking my thoughts. Does any of that make sense?
Yup. It makes a lot of sense! Jacques is most definately french. I thought Baudelaire sounded French, but I'm probably not old enough to tell. ;D Klaus is German for sure. I agree with bluesnicket because I think that the stories take place in Europe. It just makes more sense!
I'm Candaian (as almost everyone here knows! ;D) but I (and almost evryone in my city) talk the same as the people from across the boarder. Does this mean I have an American accent? Or that they have a Candian accent?
(Yea, I know this isn't the best place to ask this question, but since the topic came up...)
