German surnames, French first names. My great-great grandfather was Alsatian, but his first name was Johann. He was born in the 1790s and the family history has it that he was a member of Napoleon's personal regiment. He lived into his 90s, and cried when Alsace went to the Germans in the Franco-Prussian war. I suspect he also missed Alsatian wine.

We cycled in Alsace two years ago. The wine was wonderful. The hills not so much.

Rather than lightening the colour of white wines, SO2 prevents them from oxidisation.
