    It’s actually Louvre — but I’ve often wondered why the spelling doesn’t match the pronunciation. Why the extra silent letters?

    Wow ! This must be the most succesful (entended) family in history. I can’t wait for them to cure cancer, end poverty and bring peace to earth.

    @mabrndt – The spelling does match the pronunciation, in French. We do pronounce the r, deep in the back of the throat. That’s a sound which doesn’t exist in English so most English people don’t catch it. In French it is pronounced lou-vre.

    cabalonrye: Sorta like you intended to pronounce it and almost did. It’s there, but you have to listen carefully.

    Guess I should have tried Google translate‘s French audio capabilities. I learned something. Thanks.

    Favre is the last name of a famous former athlete (NFL quarterback) in the US. When I have Google translate pronounce it in French, it ends very much like Louvre. But in the US, instead of pronouncing it Fav, it’s pronounced Farv.

    …. and here all I was going to tell you was the extra letters are so that you know its French. Very much the following correctly spelled words “theatre, centre, cheque, toque, flavour, neighbourhood and programme”. So that you know its English.

    Isn’t language grande?!

    @wecatsgocomics – come on, don’t tell me you didn’t invent ‘th’ just to have a laugh at us. Ze Louvre is a perfect tit for tat if I may say so.

    @Gweedo Murray – I listened to the French voice in Google, I heard the r. I guess if the sound doesn’t exist in your own language it is a bit hard for your ear to decipher it.

    The letters are not silent, they are subtle.
