In French, John Doe would probably be “Pierre Dupond” in Europe (which oddly enough is not a very common name statistically) but it may not fit the bill EAI-wise...

For EAI examples, my suggestion would be something like Noël.André@région.fr or Hélène.Guérin at région.fr

The use of accentuated surnames has been patchy since the advent of typewriters… but those who have one sometimes resent it, these two are the most common which can be accentuated: http://www.filae.com/nom-de-famille/classement-general-1 and other sources.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for this.

We’re looking to build a bit of narrative to show how important EAI is to people (in this case imaginary) who can’t currently use email the way that they might want to because their names use non-ascii characters.

Hello Don

May be we can use SUPPORT@ or MAIL@ instead of name along with country specific example.भारत

Like for Russia you can use почта@пример.pyc<mailto:%D0%BF%D0%BE%D1%87%D1%82%D0%B0 at xn--e1afmkfd.pyc> in English mail at example.rus<mailto:mail at example.rus>

We’re building some documentation around EAI and creating some generic, but culturally local, examples of email addresses.

In the US it might be something like john.doe at example.com<mailto:john.doe at example.com>.  In the UK it might be something like john.bull at example.com<mailto:john.bull at example.com>.  And in NZ it would be Joe.Bloggs at example.com<mailto:Joe.Bloggs at example.com>

I’m looking for similar, ‘everyman’ names in other places, particularly those that don’t use only ascii.

So, if you have any suggestions, please do let me know.
