I'm really lost on a lot of these.

van der mom i think is self-explanatory

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've always assumed your username was a take off of the famous architect, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe?

Anyway, mine is intended as "Luke."

I'd still go with tih-nay-shus. Maybe it's a Missouri thing.

Are you originally from Missouri?

Because, really, all the cool people are born here.

Haemulon: some debate about this. But the technically correct way to pronounce it is "Heem-you-lawn" (Latin, go figure). Some say "Haim-you-lawn", and thats ok. I like it with the long E though.

JAHN-ee WON eye

And for the person curoius about the origin, it was a nickname my grandpa gave me when I was very young because i seem to squint with one eye in the sun, even if it's barely sunny outside at all. It's not something dirty (as many have implied before...)

Nope, born in England, raised in TX. But I do like how Missourians have to "show me." And that y'all say, "draw me a pitcha."

Dr. D has this problem where the truth is impulsively spewed out. You can't blame Durden for admitting the true origin of all cool people.
