    Ohhh, man. That non-spacing of Dutch names is a killer, isn't it?
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    Gah I really don't like my name but I'm going to have to live with it because I can't really see myself with a normal name

    Ikram Aiden (I actually like my middle name, at least people can pronounce it!)

    Ikram is the arabic word for Honorable and my mom picked it out on a whim, I had no real name for about 16 days after my birth because my parents fought over what to name me, my mom wanted to name me Farida but my dad refused because he had a grudge against someone named Farida, my dad wanted to name me after my grandma...which would have gotten me teased an awful lot O_O sooo in retrospect I'm lucky my mom chose this name.
    Men are like parking spaces/the good ones are always taken and the ones left are handicapped or to small.

    For my middle name, my mother said she named me after her grandfather.

    Now YOURS is a totally cool name.

    In Germany, if a person's last name is "Von Lehman" it means that they are "from Lehman" and in some cases the name is tied to a royal bloodline.

    Does the same convention hold for Dutch names?

    wow, it's interesting you should say that!
    my understanding is that Van can mean "from" in dutch, but it doesn't always. and Van can be tied to dutch royalty, but it isn't always.
    but my name is actually german!

    here's the story...
    my father's family (the Van Zerriks) are not actually dutch, they are german. our name used to be Von Zerrik. during world war II my grandfather was drafted into the Nazi army, but he fled germany for the united states instead. when he came to america the immigration agents incorrectly registered his name as Van Zerrik, instead of Von. and he never bothered to change it, because he felt that having an obviously german name would be a detriment in war-time and post-war america.
    and to confuse it even more, there apparently was never a town in germany named Zerrik.

    my father's family, however, is all german.
    we still have Von Zerrik relatives in germany.

    My name is Alexander Ichabod Prunes. No it isn't; it's something a lot duller, too dull to mention. I mean to get it changed at the first opportune moment. I shouldn't have to, of course: everyone should be allowed to choose a name once they reach adulthood, a name that they've grown into, not the other way around. But no, we have to waltz around with the dull names our parents give us, the names that have very little to do with who we really are.
