But the word actually has nothing to do with Schwarzenegger. Note that we have gubernatorial elections. It turns out "gubernator" predates "governor" and comes from a Latin word that refers to the helmsman or pilot of a boat.

Toadless. Just because it was so silly and I couldn't believe it was a real word. I have lived my entire life toadless. LOL

ESCOLARS. By the way, I suggest avoiding anything called "white tuna" or "butterfish" at sushi bars.

BASTILLE.

I always thought this was a proper noun. But the dictionaries seem to say it's been an English word, meaning a prison or a fortified tower, since the 14th century. That would mean it was already in the English language before the famous Bastille was built.
