some had both French and German speaking nannies.

Très gut!

I have both French and German ancestry.  But, the French side won out, and that's the only language I ever delved into.  Both Cajun French and "regular" French.

Knowing more than one language doesn't make someone multicultural. Old-time INS guys had to know English and Spanish MINIMUM in order to have the pleasure of trying to prevent multiculturalism in the USA. If they wanted a better chance to be assigned to the Northern Border, an International Airport, a foreign airport (pre-clearance), or have a chance of being promoted then they had had better know more than the minimum (French was the second most common). Lots of employers of illegal aliens know Spanish but only speak it in the course of business and don't even eat tacos at home.
If attending Mass, the ordinary form as celebrated everyday around the world be sinful, then the Church no longer exists. Period.
Rather, if the NOM were the lex credendi of the Church, then the Church would no longer exist. However, the true mass and the true sacraments still exist and will hold the candle of faith until Our Lord steps in to restore His Bride to her glory.
We could compare ourselves to the Catholics in England at the time of the Reformation. Was it sinful for them to attend Cranmer's service?
We have to remind ourselves that all the machinery of the "Church" continued in place. They had priests, bishops, churches, cathedrals. But all of them were using the new "Book of Common Prayer" instead of the Catholic Mass. Ordinary lay people could see with their own eyes an enormous entity that called itself the "Church," but did the true Church still exist in that situation? Meanwhile, in small hiding places in certain homes were a handful of true priests offering the true Mass at the risk of imprisonment, torture and death.

Who was it that named John the baptist?  It was his father.  Post Fall, it is to be the father to speak the first words to the child, in the form of their name, lest the woman, in her current state of pain, instead of blessing the child with a good name, curse the child as a result of her labors, by giving them a bad name.

Every time I think I've read the most bizarre thing ever on Suscipie Domine somebody tops it.

Jewish naming ceremonies happened days after birth. Brit milah for boys and Zeved habat for girls. So the ceremonial aspect has nothing to do with pain of childbirth, unless one believes women are cursing their babies 8 days after they are born.

An angel named John, not his father:

Quote from: Luke 1
But the angel said to him: Fear not, Zachary, for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John
