Well, Christophe's version of his language name has one n - Narbonůsc.
Anyway, even with the stress on the second syllable, ending it in -ish
just sounds and looks ugly to me. For the type of language it is (Similar
to French), the ending -ese just sounds best for it. My thinking for this
ran along the lines of language names like "Vietnamese".

This is all my humble opinion, of course ;).
