Happy now, Mumsnet?
Laszlo just doesn't have the gravitas.
And Marathon became Snickers.
But not like when Octavian became Augustus.
And definitely not when Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali.
very similar in fact
although I can't remember what exactly.
he called himself lazlo
Zoltan and Attila are also popular Hungarian men's names.
I used to work at a language school in Budapest. There was a small, timid balding Attila in my class who was an accountant. It was great.
they live in Wimbledon. They are of Turkish ancestry.
I also used to teach a Turkish bloke called Firat. He was explainin g what his name meant one day, the big river in between Turkey and Iraq, and asked what it was called in English. I told him the Euphrates. For a couple of days he was introducing himself in english as Euphrates and getting either very weird looks or confusing questions about if he was greek.
In my reign of terror days I'd have just kept banning every Alt Balonz tried to use until he was forced to use Balonz again.
Just realised I've done nothing all day.
With this, and no Balonz, I yield.
