The French word “maman,” meaning “mother,” is pronounced “MA-moh.” The second syllable is rather nasal and the final “n” is silent.
I say this because “people” frequently say to me “I read your post on Vampire MahMAN.” Why would I call my blog Vampire MahMAN? Really? That sounds horrible.
So why DO I call the blog Vampire Maman, rather than say, Vampire Mom? Vampire Mom sounds sort of like a cartoon or a joke.
As I was setting up the blog I overhear my daughter talking to one of her French friends. Ah ha. I had a blog name. Plus almost everything sounds good in French.
So remember, silent n. Or you can just call me Vampire Mom or Juliette.
~ Juliette aka Vampire Maman
