When working in Scotland in the mid 1970's, a couple of workmates were two lovely sisters from CH. They were au-pairs in the estate house. Their names are Cornelia and Beatrice Mann.

Haven't seen them since, but the memory is vivid. Probably have a shock now if I saw them 40 years later.

Does the au in au-pairs stand for Australia !!!

I thought it came from something like "Au! Hands off, oaf!"?
