comment Why is “Xy” pronounced as “Ki Shi” in Xylitol「キシリトール」?
It's obviously pronounced "Kishi" and not "Kishili". The "Li" part comes from "litol"…

comment Why do children call themselves by their name?
@Chris: yes, I think it's very common. For girls, I think you mostly use the child's name, or お嬢ちゃん (ojouchan).

comment Why do children call themselves by their name?
Also, it's common to call a young boy as "boku (僕)." In the end, he associates "boku" like his name with himself, and ends up saying it to mean "I".

comment The plural 等 in おいら, おら
Tohoku's "ora" is singular, and written 俺 in kanji. I don't know why you think it's plural. Moreover, I don't see why you post Yoshi Ikuzo's picture either: he song "おら東京さ行ぐだ" is about a single person, not a group. FWIW, all my Tohoku-ben speaking friends and I say "おらたち" (or rather, おらたづ) when using plural.

comment Describing aptronyms (names that fit their owner)
I do not wish to make my name public, but it is an aptonym related of a feat of my body (in French). Other common examples you can find in French communities are tall people named "Legrand" (i.e, Mr. Tall), or "Petit" (ie, "Small").
