Commentator calling Jags "YAG-ielka" and it's doing my head in.

Originally it was pronounced Yag (as indeed it is in the Polish royal dynasty Jagiellon), but when you embed a name into a different language, you have to alter it to fit the vocal character of the host language, so Jags it is.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.
