    For some reason I just remembered a funny incident, with my grandfather, on my birthday (as a boy). He bought me a water colour paint set with Japanese brushes. The brushes had Japanese symbols on them. I said "Look Opa (grandpa) the brushes have Japanese writing on them". He puts on his glasses and pretends to speak Japanese. I said "Can you speak Japanese?" He said with a smile "Of course I can". "Then what does it mean" I said curiously. He said, "Wash brushes after use".

    Your lucky to be so famous :biggrin2
    Mine is so rare it was the only name in Australia until about ten years ago. (Though not directly related, on some other distant branch).

    It's actually a rare name ,found only in parts of america and all are kin.

    Two brothers are the source of this,but i dont want to derail this on my surname.
