My french name doesn't turn right

I am terribly upset because of my french name (François).
I have read that it is fine to have cedilla or umlaut in
one's name in gnupg but here it is what I get in gnupg
[jan@muse jan]$ gpg --edit-key firstname.lastname@example.org

Well, the command-messages from gnupg are messed up but I read
something about gnupg not using gettext. It wouldn't bother me
if it was the only problem....because I found out that despite
my name looks good in gnupg, it doesn't in the wide world. GPA
shows me the FranÂ§ois thing and so does keyserver.net
By reading through the mailing-list, I know there is no hope
correcting the problem and I would like to simply add a new Id
but how should I do since my gnupg doesn't understand me right.
If you've got any idea, I would greatly appreciate.
