I did take French years ago. Not exactly Latin, but French developed
from Latin. Going back to what I remember from French class, I think the
acute accent (') is more appropriate than the grave accent (`). And if
you write "Lupee" in French, you must put an acute accent over one e
(most likely the first one).

I think the name was intended to represent the Latin form rather than the
French, and I don't know the rules for Latin. Has anyone else here taken
