|I want to name my pet fish, the French word for CLOWN|
THE FRENCH IN EUROPE HAVE ADOPTED THE WORD CLOWN PRONOUNCED CLOON AS PER THE ABOVE.
THE OLDER WORD FOR CLOWN AND USED IN QUEBEC IS BOUFFON AND IS LIKE THE OLD ENGLISH TERM FOR CLOWM BOFFON WHICH IS STILL USED IN A DIFFERENT CONTEXT.
A SCIENTIST OR A SPECIALIST IS OFTEN CALLED A BOFFON.
TO CALL YOU FISH" MON PETIT BOUFFON " MAY BE MORE TO YOUR TASTE ...UP TO YOU
YOU MAY VERY WELL CALL HIM BOFFON IN ENGLISH ALSO???
MERRY XZMAX TO YOU AND YOUR LITTLE BOUFFON

Same word in French, only pronounced differently, like "cloon". It's a masculine word in French.
