bassen BS: Were you named after anyone? (126* d) RE: BS: Were you named after anyone? 21 Feb 07


For lack of imagination in giving names it's hard to beat four brothers in this part of Norway who were named Ole, Ole, Ole and ... Ivar. The story has it that the mother refused to name her fourth son Ole, even though that was what her husband wanted to name him. In daily parlance they called themselves Big Ole, Little Ole and Olaus (the latin form for Ole).   Considering the fact that Ole is historically THE most common name in Norway, this guy really was not exerting himself when it came to names.
