No sarcasm at all, "Uncle Remus" sounded to me like a plausible Russian name.
Anyway, it was a great work you did. I had been an occasional technical translator in the 80's and 90's and it is the hell of a job. For my own use I only work in English originals, never translations.

Remus isn't Russian name

Br'er Romulus and uncle Remus and mommy "La Lupa Capitolina" (the Capitol Female Wolf)

Yeah, makes sense. Italian emigrants to the US, named their slave Remus and their dog Romulus.  :skrewy:
