William who loves to write asks...
What is the correct plural of a formal name ending in an S, such as Sainopolos?
Anne answers...
Proper nouns ending in "S" form the plural by adding "ES" So more than one member of the Sainopolos family gathered together for a holiday meal would be the Sainopoloses.
