Serious fact: On the British Isles the European red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) has become nearly extinct due to the introduction of the North American grey squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis). The latter has become a pest.
So I'm sure England - and Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland, too - would really wellcome each rode eekhoorn from the Netherlands instead of running away.

In Eastern Slavic countries, squirrels should not be trusted to cook, especially when it comes to egg whites and proteins. They sound almost the same.
Squirrel - belka and belki in singular and plural.
Egg whites and protein - belok and belki in singular and plural.

In the web serial novel series Whateley Academy, their Squirrel Girl equivalent has the code name 'Aquerna', from the Middle English word for 'squirrel' (it was suggested to her by an improbably well-educated classmate). Presumably, this is from the same root as the Dutch 'eekhoorn'.

Compare this to El Goonish Shive's Grace Sciuridae, whose name literally can be read as 'gray squirrel' (as 'Sciuridae' is the Greek for squirrel, and the family name of squirrels and chipmunks in taxonomy).

The two words are pretty close in Danish:
Acorn = Agern
Squirrel = Egern
