The combination French first name with German last name is particularly common in Luxemburg. As a matter of fact, you could easily have presented yourself as a Luxemburger. All the French stuff you describe (I don't like camembert; I quite like Brie and Port-Salut, though; I adore croissant, and I don't mind a baguette from time to time) is quite common here, too. As a matter of fact, I wonder if France really needs to be close in order to have those thins in the supermarkets.
