Quoting Mr Gecko

just think of the hell you will be putting on a child with all the name slagging, race comments etc...in a western society...kids can be very mean!

Mr Gecho

Did u experience much name slagging, when u were a kid?
I think u would have been the only Olaf, in Ireland.
And with not having an Irish surname either, it would have been even worse.

I've read all the threads again, and actually I don't know what the problem has been...real problem I mean. ok, i was threadjacking a couple of times, just to bring in a fun part. It's good to be serious, but just listen to eachother and don't be furious so fast. Jeez, i am glad i had a simple life so far without any problems.

But to stay on topic....Zach...go for it, it might work out and otherwise it's just a very very good experience and you will probably learn something from it! Bit jealous even, because i don't have the experience myself.

no

no

and no

i know 3 Olaf's in Dublin! its not a very rare name but a known name....yes a unsual name because it isnt irish...but i know lots of stefans! in ireland too and that isnt irish either.

and if you do your research there is a gaelic football team, church, and schools ALL in dublin...that are called olaf, st olaf etc...

there is an even a name for olaf that is in irish!!! so to have gaelic for the name olaf says something too which is...'Amhlaoibh'

plus when the vikings came to ireland there was lots olaf's including king olaf!!!

my surname is of course very rare.

It's actually a very normal name in holland, germany and scandinavia as well.
