Normans = Norse men, although by then they'd begun to pick up a bit of French for some reason.
Regardless of that, I'd argue that the Normans were actually nothing like the Frogs. Apart from anything else, the Frogs have never had the ability or the will to invade England. The first sign of opposition and the white flags would be waving!
No, the Normans were good fighting men, just like the Vikings were. Both they and the Vikings succeeded (at different times) to invade and conquer Anglo-Saxon England.
