And as far as anglicised names go, if their owners want them, fine. If they
don't, that's their choice, too. If my name were really Erkki, I'd still
call myself Eric. Especially since I can't pronounce Erkki. Besides, there's
at least one other internetworked Erkki Korpela. I'm more unique as Eric.
Athough there's another Eric in Pennsylvania, he doesn't seem to have an
internet presence. (Eat your heart out Eric Smith. :) )
