Quel est le nom?


Bilbao has just let me know he’s returned from vacation, and so before the week is over, will  have another hard math puzzle to put up!

Today, however, comes a neat challenge pulled from a very old pile of French puzzle cards-the same dreaded stash that produced 100 million Gherkins (from which only Grandmaster Shawn could show the way out!)

For this one, the task is a bit more to the point: What is the name of the little boy? And,

What is the name of the little girl??

    His name is “Lucien”, hers is “Rose”…fold the card corners together diagonally a la “Mad Fold-In” and the names show up.

    Though with sour faces like that, their names should be “Stand In The Corner” and “You’re Grounded!” ;-)

    Am I missing something? This looks awfully easy.
    Boy: Lucien
    Girl: Rose

    Haha, this one is quite easy and plus, French is my first language.

    Lucien and Rose. Which are, to be honest, old people’s names (Except for Rose that is making a comeback recently. ;))

    Maintenant, il faudrait demander à trouver leur âge respectif!

    NN posts a nice link to how the solution is obtained;

    @Denita two Dragons-haha those are some braty expressions they have on their face!

    Considering that these are french cards….so can I take a wild guess that Lucien refers to Lucien Bonaparte (Napolean’s brother) and Rose refers to Josephine (Napolean’s wife)

    What are they two doing on a card together…? Does Napolean know about this card?
