Suggest you check out [name]Fritz[/name] on wikipedia re derogatory term for [name]German[/name][/quote]
[name]Rollo[/name], I appreciate your concern, but as I have explained, I am not concerned about [name]Fritz[/name] being a “derogatory” term. The wars were a long time ago, I am British but have lived in Germany, and I am quite positive that there is no residual hostility. [name]Fritz[/name] is still a popular name in Germany, so clearly they are not concerned. I’m sorry to be snappish; I’m not in the best of moods with a scan and an adoption hearing next week.
[name]Lemon[/name] - [name]Alisdair[/name] was the spelling used a couple of generations back in my family … not someone I’m concerned about honouring (my grandfather’s cousin), but that is just the spelling I am used to! I actually think [name]Alasdair[/name] is the correct version … hmm, I think I prefer the look of [name]Alasdair[/name], actually. We would probably use that spelling, then.
