Erich Maria Remarque is pronounced (pretty much) "Eric Maria Remark" and was a German male of French descent - author of All Quiet on the Western Front.

Guy de Maupassant's first name rhymes with "key" (with a hard G) and the surname is (pretty much) "duh-mope-ass-on". Technically the stress should be on the "on", but for an anglophone audience then "mope" is probably a more comprehensible place to place the emphasis.

Can't help regarding Adam Clark, I'm afraid...
