    About your username, Niemiro: If I hadn't seen the Union Jack below your name, I had guessed you are my countryman. Niemi is one of most popular surnames in Finnish, like Smith or Jones in English speaking countries. When a Finn reads your username it comes automatically in two parts, Niemi and Ro.

    Yes, I know this sounds stupid

    I see your point. As you have guessed, niemiro is not English, (nor Finish ) It is actually White Russian, a mix of Polish and Russian, and was created just after the Second World War, a very modern surname. Therefore, all of my Polish relatives with the surname niemiro are second cousins or closer! We used to live in Poland, and our family history in Poland is long. That also explains my EU flag, I could not have UK and Poland

    When searching Facebook for niemiro, (I don't waste my time on Facebook!) I get 16 results, of which I know most of them. When searching Google, all the sensible results on the first two pages are to do with me or my family.

    Thank you Ryo. This name does have its advantages, especially when compared to Smith and Jones, and the equivalent most common surnames in other countries.
