Thread Name: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: Were you named after anyone?
I once knew a young woman named Florian. I commented on her unusual name and she explained it thus - Her father had been a fighter pilot in WW2 and haad as his crew two Polish airmen. They all became such great colleagues that her father declared that when he had children he would name them after these two men. However, his two children turned out to be girls. Nothing fazed, he still named them after his Polish comrades, Florian, and Marion.
