While compiling to pdf a LyX document that uses packages frenchle and endnotes, I get: "You are using two French options for Babel" when I try to generate the pdf.

The solution is given here for German:

% JK Introduced \notesname in the spirit of international \LaTeX.

% JK \notesname is set per default to be {Notes}, but can easily

% JK be redifined, e.g. for german language

% JK \renewcommand{\notesname}{Anmerkungen}

But after several tries, I realy don't know how to apply it. "Anmerkungen" means "notes" in english and "notes" in french, so I imagine I should not need it anyway.

If I add \renewcommand{\notesname}{Notes} in the preambul, it changes nothing. If I add it in the document in a TeX box before the one for \theendnotes, or in the same box, it changes nothing.

Here is a MWE:

After having build another MWE from scratch, it appears that my original document has a \lang french in the endnotes block:

\begin_layout Standard
\align left

\lang french
\begin_inset ERT
status open

\begin_layout Plain Layout


\backslash
theendnotes
\end_layout

\end_inset


\end_layout

Suppressing it in a text editor solves the problem.
