Worse is that it's also
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itza_people

But frankly:
either worrying about "ana-lyze" being near "anal"[1] or "Kant" being pronounced as "cunt" is equally infantile rubbish. (ie. imo asking to rename Kant -to Kate- was wrong in the first place)

Stuff like "Ur-anus" or "Annalen der Physik" is funny when you're 10, but then you grow up and... well - that's it.

If one wanted to avoid any of this incidents, one would better stop talking.
(female co-worker once got *really* upset when a japanese client greeted her... - for non germans: "moshi moshi" sounds alot like "muschi muschi" - "pussy pussy" ... it was not as funny as it might sound)


Cheers,

[1] Can we still sue ancient greece (analyse) and romans (anus) for these unfortunate words which lead to confusion later on, when some extra smart ppl. called a part of the human body after ("haha"...) a completely unrelated thing (or another, depending on the plural variant) because they were not all that smart and their latin pretty weak?
