FWIW, the OED has an entry for this, and it's usually pretty good at keeping out the unidiomatic. Also, the noun (which we don't have) also has a feminine form, fausse-naïve.  — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 01:29, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
I'd keep it, the two words are borrowings from French, although we have English definitions for both of them. I'd both never heard of it and didn't know what it meant. Keep. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:31, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
What does NISOP mean? --Rising Sun talk? contributions 10:44, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Not idiomatic, sum of parts. Took me a while to figure it out, too. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:44, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Not seeing the above arguments to keep as convincing in light of the CFI. Delete per nom.​—msh210 17:22, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
What are the parts, and how do I derived this meaning from them? Mglovesfun (talk) 20:03, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
This is an English entry that's been nominated, and its two parts — faux and naïf — have English adjective entries. The meaning of the whole is the simple sum of the parts' meanings. What's unclear?​—msh210 16:04, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
