Having a 14-letter last name brings up a lot of questions.
Here are the 2 most common…
What kind of last name is that?
answer: It’s Greek
follow up question: Do you speak Greek?
answer: No. On a separate, but similar topic, I can speak Spanish from my 2-years living in a small Mayan village in Guatemala, and then later living in the Andes in Ecuador. (although it’s quite rusty these days!)
follow up question: Are you Greek?
answer: I am not Greek. My last name is a gift from the love of my life, my husband Antonios. Antonios’ father is from Leros.
