We have had a suggestion by e-mail from René Alsemgeest in Utrecht, The Netherlands:

"On your informative page Names of 'Main Tintin Characters in Different Languages' I would add two extra columns for the characters Bianca Castafiore and Jolyon Wagg (Serafijn Lampion in Dutch)."

This sounds like good primary Tintinology! Throughout the literature on the works of Hergé, these two are generally considered part of the "paper family" of core characters.

It certainly is worth considering adding the columns, but it isn't possible until we have collected and collated the data; it may be that, for example, Castafiore remains Castafiore in all languages, but it's certainly worth finding out if that is the case.

So, as an exercise: using the list of languages on our existing names page, can you fill in any of the blanks for Castafiore and Wagg in those tongues?
