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?

I clarified the question and wonder if can be re-opened in its current form. The OP made a plausible but wrong effort to translate "corner," using the wrong dictionary.

@Takkat: I have limited the scope of the question by asking about mistakes made by the OP, and wonder if it can be re-opened in its current form?
