I have the need to discern what to do with the Leoneli(s) seizing an opportunity for a publication.
I recall a college English prof telling me not to change the endings on proper names (ie., all the Christys at the party, not all the Christies at the party).
I'm going to go with either "The Leonelis seized the opportunity" or the Leoneli family members or something like that if I don't think it alters the piece too much.
Thanks for your "debate."
We had another good one to contend with a while back: "faculty(s)" of all the schools. I cannot recall if we went with faculties or faculty members.
