    no stewart. magnum innominandum is not 'doesnt have to be'. its 'must not be'. you need to go over your declinations it would seem.

    i did actually, funny story, or, very possibly, totally shit boring and irrelevant, yet still i type and type, which is a fairly good description of all i do on this forum anyway. i started with steward, but then it struck me thats a work position in a bar is it not? the britons tend to have professions as family names not calling names, is this not true

    I think i'll just let this slide...wrong person to start questioning what they decide to type over the forum :teeth:

    Yes some English family names derive from professions, you are correct.

    my surname is 'HoBag-McSluttingwhore'

    i know, i know, double-barreled surname, doesn't mean i'm posh though...

    hey, what would win in a fight between fire and ice? just a thought.
