      And then there were those impossible sir names such as Przybyszewski. Just learning to spell that was a triumph for both the kids and the teachers. The were a Polish family

      Those were pretty memorable. I don't understand some naming practices.
      I worked in a doctor's office one summer. A man's name - Semen. Pronounced exactly like that. His daughter used to leap up and yell, "We're here!" before I could even get it out.
