Tom and Ray are so na?ve. They’ve probably never heard of Ana?s Nin.

(And as explanation: in French, diaeresis over “i” is uncommon but standard. It always occurs when the “i” follows another vowel, and means that the “i” is pronounced as a separate vowel instead of being combined as it normally would – “Thais” would be one syllable, but “Tha?s” is two syllables.)

Tha?s, you have a lovely name.


Tha?s is the name of an opera by the French composer Jules Massenet. One frequently heard work for solo violin is the “Meditation” from this opera.
