'ffrench', 'ffinch' and 'ffife' are all English surnames. Just google for
them! I didn't mean to cause confusion. I'm not aware of this phenomenon
in any other language, though surnames beginning with a uncapitalised
grammatical word are common enough.
My point was that where initial 'ff' titlecases to 'ff', titlecase("f") +
lowercase("french") is not equal to titlecase("ffrench"), but there is
nothing defective about either substring.
