NPR Sunday Puzzle (May 31, 2020): Parlez-vous Français?:

Q: Think of a familiar three-word name of something. The first word in that name is a number. Let’s call that number “x.” The last “x” letters of the second word of the name are a French translation of the third word. What’s the name?

I can’t give a hint that doesn’t give it away.

Edit: If I did give a revealing clue, someone would say it was TMI (too much information) but that abbreviation would also be too revealing. Bonus hint. In one of my replies I said “Cool”.

A: THREE MILE ISLAND, ÎLE = ISLAND
