But Connectiva was not French, so trying to pronounce it's new name with a 
french accent makes no sense.  Since the new company's biggest market is 
still Brazil, you should try to pronounce it with a pt_BR accent.  Think of 
it as rhyming with "llama!".

Some guy with big puffy sleeves and tight pants dancing with a deeply tanned 
Carioca sporting a nice pair of maracas and clad in nothing but feathers, and 
a penguin eating cheese.  Mandriva!
