I am a Japanese national, while having ethnically Korean origin.

 

And your friend is Japanese too?

No, he is English, and his wife is a Lebanese.

Interestingly, in Japan, there is a town called "十三" (13).

In Japanese, "13" is read "Zyûsan", but this town is called "Zyûsô".

I met a Japanese whose given name is "十三" (Zyûsô), because he was born there.

The surname '8' comes from my ancestor being a prop.

 

When is sigesige00 going to be blocked?

To continue the theme, I've decided if we ever have a daughter she will be called Alex&dra.

No word of a lie, I know a child called Neveah. Doesn't sound too bad but read it backwards and you'll see why they were given the name.

I knew Tracey Lazenby quite well when I was a bit younger, ok, a fair bit younger. He certainly had a fearsome reputation.

 

He scored a belting try for KR on Scrumdown once, maybe summat for the other thread.

 

His folks named his elder brother Colin.

 

Not sure who got the rawest deal, tbh.

That's nothing. Their dad was a regular down at Dockers when I played for them. He was known as Bunny.

Blooming forum won't let me quote posts !!!

 

If the wife is Lebanese, what is 'thirteen' in Arabic ?

 

If the husband is from England, maybe his local dialect would give them an idea.  In Cumbria where I originate, thirteen is 'Tethera Dick' ..... or then again, maybe not.

How about "Jeu a Treize"?*

Could you translate "Jeu a Treize" into English?  What language is it?  français?
