Crazy Last Names

It's a running joke at PFI that you have to have a crazy last name in order to work here!

Mastromatteo, Przelomski, Van Graafeiland... seriously!

Anyways, a supplier I'm working with just sent me an email saying that his sales team has a bet running about my last name. They want to know if it's Dutch.

Well, yes, it is.

And... one of his Dutch counterparts (who speaks the language fluently) wrote back to tell me my last name actually means:

"from a dig island"

Interesting!
