I dunno. Does the University of Portland Vice-President of Academic Affairs do affairs? Social? Extra-marital? (I once knew a young asst. prof. who had had an affair with the vice president of academic affairs as an undergraduate.)

Evelyn Moscow-Froehlich, which I understand to mean Evelyn Moscow-Merry, was from Des 
Moines, which means "Of the monks."

If Des Moines is really "De Moine", why is Des Plaines Illinois "Des Plains"?
