I realise that french familly names were often build from
occupationale, physical or geographical caracteristics ('le grand'
means 'the tall', 'boulanger' means 'baker', 'du jardin' 'from the
garden'...). Such a tag name could be usefull for stranger who are
learning and reading french texts...

And so all the <u>nderlined text would become names ?
