About names

Mako blogged about names and dates (yes, I'm a bit behind, quite busy). Did you know, that not only my name is Alexander, but one of my sister is called "Alexandra"? Don't ask me, what our parents thought about that ;)

But even better: Once upon the time, my sisters boyfriends brother was called Alexander, too. Guess what's the name of his girlfriend was! Yes! Alexandra. And my second sisters boyfriend was an Alexander, too, whose sisters boyfriend was ... correct! An Alexander.

Of course Alexander and Alexandra are far too long names, so all where familiar in being just called "Alex".

We managed it one time, to get all Alexanders and Alexandras to one party. That was quite an interesting experience, on the one hand, it was quite easy to remember all the names, or call for help in the kitchen ("Hey! Alex! Mind to lend me an hand?"). On the other hand, this was the most confusing party to speak of afterwards: "Did you know that Alex has a new car?" - "No! .... Wait! Which one?" - "The one who is engaged with Alex!..."
