weird names pt. 2

some poor chap was given the name "Basil Henry...". What were his parents thinking? Why didn't they at least call him "Henry Basil ...."?

That reminds me of that joke from Ellen: "Mom, I'm not a plant."
Nope, he's a herb...

This is a name combining two of the main character's names from "the picture of dorian gray", isn't it? But it is weird indeed... I got to know a Mladen Mladi (which means "Young-first name Young-family name")
Hope you're staying tough fighting this evil thesis.
When you're done with your thesis I sincerely hope to see you (or the two of you) again!
