As a kid I did not even know it was called the clone wars because I'm french and the french version talk about a "black war", they did not use the word "clone" at all... Later I heard about the clone wars and when I finaly saw the original audio version I just thought, "oh, ok. So the black war is in fact the clone wars. Sounds cool". But I never really thought about more than this.
Side note: the first death star in french is also called the black star (the death star in Jedi is called the deah star too in french)
