Ok, I hope this is an easy one...

The answer to this clue will be a two-word name. First word has 8 letters; 4th letter is the "n" from Bernardo. Second word has 4 letters.

This is the name of a ship that used to be a cruise liner, but during World War II, the UK put it to different uses. It was carrying Italian, Austrian, and German born British residents across the ocean to internment camps in North American when it was hit by a German torpedo and sank, killing hundreds of passengers.

Yes! I'd never even heard of it until just a few months ago when it was the subject of a discussion on the Italian Language forum. (So many things I've never heard of....)

This is too easy, but I'm outta ideas again.

A line from another Shakespearean play provided the title for this novel by an Englishman. 3 words:
5,3,5. The third letter of the first word is the letter"A" from the previous answer.

Grandmere isn't around, but I'm pretty sure my answer in the previous post was good, so I'll make up a new clue.

Glass, steel, temperature measurement, insects, crustaceans, and coral were among the many subject areas in which this French scientist contributed studies or inventions.

The name has 5 "words" or parts, containing 4, 7, 9, 2, and 6 letters (usually in that order). The "r" from Brave is the 3rd letter of the 3rd word in the name.

I did send a reply last night but perhaps I forgot to hit the button. Sorry for the lag.
