Well Jim, my name's up there with the non-American ones. I suppose that's something to be grateful for! Of course, you lot probably pronounce it 'less' (short for Lester?) rather than the 'lez' it really is. Incidentally, that's another Scottish surname in origon.
The very first American bloke I met (a long time ago) insisted that his name was Chuck. Well that made us laugh quite a bit! (In Real English that means throw or vomit).
Any road, vive la differance, as they say somewhere or other.
