And then there's "wala" -- it took me quite a while to figure out that that was really "voilà."

What really annoys me about this one is that "voila" doesn't start with a "w" sound anyway. It's more like "vwala." My DH says it more like "wala" (more like "whala" actually") and it drives me just batty! (I took French for many years and visited the country a few times, and I always heard it with a v.)
