I can't help it. What is Mon Chou supposed to mean? When I was getting translations while reading the story, it said 'my cabbage', but that doesn't seem very romantic. LOL Also, is the English translation for Etienne really Stephen?

Katy Regnery LOL!! Yes! Mon Chou means "my cabbage" just like we'd say "Sweet Pea" or "Cookie" or "Muffin" or "Pumpkin"... I admit it doesn't work when translated, but it's 100% authentic. And yes!! ETIENNE translates to STEPHEN and means "crown," which felt right since KATE is the princess of the English clan. :)
