Interesting. How should one pronounce, in any language, Miss Lane's first name Lois? Let's ask Superman/Clark Kent. If "Lois" is pronounced with two syllables, the "i" should have an umlaut above it, not a dot. (cf. Noel)

Heh. I guess we (Americans, at least) just know from popular culture how Lois is pronounced. There are plenty of Irish names which I have no clue how to pronounce, though if I had grown up there, I would have known. I didn't know how to pronounce either Megan or Caitlin when I first encountered them (as an adult).
