Hmmmmm .... interesting permutation .... everyone across the pond seems to think that Yanks are an ethnic group. It's actually a mental state ... we absolutely know that we are better and smarter than anyone else.

I, like most of you, had four grandparents, a nice little old lady named Anna Grimm from York, England, a feisty big old lady who was the daughter of a serf named Agnes Uzarowicz from Stari Pryp'yat, Ukraine, a gentle ex civil servant / bookkeeper named Vladimir Lepkowski from Nowa Wies Szlachecka, Krakow, Poland, and an obnoxious know-it-all Prussian cavalry officer (complete with the pointed helmet) from Leherheide, Bremerhaven, Germany. In other words, I'm a north american mutt!

To create confusion around me I have taken to introducing myself as Pavel Artur Jan Waclaw Lepkowski in a thick Polish accent while pretending that I don't understand English.

Waclaw, an ancient name, is pronounced Vats-waff, and Jan is pronounced Yan. I also like to mention that polaks don't mind strange odors, in fact we encourage them by eating things like Bigos, Golabki, Golonka, Kielbasa and Kapusta.

Bet you're sorry you asked about ethnic origins now!

(In Polish "polak" means a male pole, "polka" means a female pole. The "ski" suffix on my name Lepkowski indicates that I am male, my wife's last name used to be Lepkowska, but here lately it has become Lepkowskova.)

Hi Pavel in NY

You certainly have a diverse family tree . Great story. Interesting to hear how names are made up.

Most of my ancestors are from Pommy land / UK somewhere. My wife knows where.

I do think we made be getting a bit off topic with this thread though.

Great chatting. Enjoy the rest of your afternoon over there.

Brian.

@Brian

Naaaaa ... this isn't off topic. My Freon compressor died, I'm trying to replace it then write a program to control it, if I don't get it working I'm going to get hot and sweaty which is very bad for a Polak half-breed, I would have to limit my intake of Kapusta and Kielbasi to avoid strange chemical reactions. It's all part of the job.
