  1. You really don’t know why are so many Romanians named Ovidiu or Virgiliu even if they and their parents never read a line of their poetry?
    Because this names and other (Cezar, Valeriu, Octavian etc.) can not be translated in Hungarian language, and this is a form of resisting 50 years of forced Magyarization.


    • is that the reason why the rest of the country too named their sons ovidiu and virgil? or i am wrong and they all read poetry.


      • @peti
        as you well know many of the inhabitants of Transilvania moved in the other parts of Romania, taking with them their traditions; beside this is quite common in Romania to name your child born in Huși or Oltenita after their grandfather Ovidiu form Gherla.


      • Can you put a spot on this sight so people can sign their chiderln up for sports online just in case they can’t make it to the sign ups in person?


  2. Good one Sam!
