  1. Agree about us hearing a word in another language and then trying to write what we heard. For instance, the French founded Mobile in 1702, and gave names to local creeks and rivers. One , the modern name is Sizemore Creek. I found an old french map that has the name of this creek as ” seis mois ” , which was the French at that time for ” sixth month “. English moving into this area later would have heard it as ” size mwa ” , and knowing the English penchant for putting an -re in the place of a French sound ( theatre , for instance ), they wrote the name as Sizemore, a word/name they knew.
