My (American) parents aren't German, but they put me in the care of a German-American governess when I was young. Was ist der Unterschied zwischen "Gouvernante" und "Kindermädchen?"

I am the author of "A Modern Approach to Graham and Dodd Investing," a book about a "German" way of investing. Ben "Graham" was a German-American whose original surname was Grossbaum. How does one refer to a changed name in German?

The question about verb order is clear enough from the comparison/contrast, and two other questions were "asked" (implicitly).

@Robert: Those constructions follow correct word order. "Lese" is always second after "ich."
