The slash in the "l" is throwing me off.

Thanks, I have a vision problem and did not notice the "ł" in Michał until now.
That explains a lot.  laugh

Interesting.  What does the "a" ending mean in Polish or Byelorussian?

One day we will talk about why people fetishize children, but for now I'll keep on the side of humanity that doesn't think the height of life is a drinking a juice box and eating a tater tot while defecating in their pants.

You'd be Mihai Călin in Romanian... Your surname is also a common first name around here.

And in Greek, Μιχαήλ Δαφνής (mi-kha-EEl da-fnEEs), also a common surname here, or (more specifically) Μιχαήλ Βακκίνος (mi-kha-EEl va-kEE-nos) since the plant Viburnum is Βακκίνιον (va-kEE-nee-on) in Greek. I'm pretty sure I went to the same school with a Βακκίνος guy in my early school years
