Dan, thanks for this. She and I actually same the same ethnic heritage (half, at least); Lebanese (on my dad's side). Hence her last name as a first name. Supposedly, if my parents would have kept with tradition, instead of my name being Joseph George, it would have been George George Joseph George, which I think would be pretty cool now but I don't know how I would have handled it in primary school. I'll explain it more fully if we ever have beers together. Peace.
