To me, the ph- combination used for the /f/ phoneme suggests a more masculine sound. It's more used in German, the most masculine of all languages, and in Greek (in the form of phi, which for some reason isn't just transliterated as 'f'), the tongue of ancient, manly heroes, and other masculine-sounding languages.

F, however, is more commonly used in the Romance languages. Like, you know, French. It is also the beginning letter of 'feminine' and 'female.

It seems to me that changing it to 'Phrench' is paying them a compliment. You guys need to think your insults out a little more.
