    Mae’n flin ‘da fi — sorry: ’tis I bein’ a pain once more (Jim, lad) — but une bonne is a maid (domestic servant). A bollard is une borne — though in my experience une borne “maps” probably more closely onto what English-speakers call a milestone than to anything else. (The fact that there is almost never a one-to-one correspondence betwen vocabulary items in any given language pair is probably one of the most intriguing/frustrating facts of life for language-learners!)
