Well, until you now mentioned it, I never thought anything about it. I figured the initials BJ were for your first and second names and that George was your last name. Guess I was wrong ... thanks for the explanation, George.    :)

It's interesting to know the source of your nick, George.  Even if the reason for giving us an explanation was maybe a misunderstanding.  I wondered whether George was your first or last, and never really gave much thought to the BJ part.

I vaguely seem to remember we did a topic like this before.

Like David, "MikeB" is my first name and last initial.  That alone seemed to be already spoken for at many places I tried to register, so I added the Cda for Canada.

But still not quite good enough ... many have jumped on the "BC" and assumed I'm from out west (British Columbia), when actually I'm in Ontario.  So more recently, in places I joined after I did here, I use MikeB-Cda.

Hi folks,

Polonus is my nick, for my wife is from Poland. And "Polonus" is Latin for someone from Polonia.
I am of Dutch origin, my father's family goes back to the year 1275, my mom's family came originally from Prussia after the Prussian-French war.
I learned to understand and speak Polish, and that can come in handy sometimes,

polonus aka Damian
