McGregor literally means "son of Gregory", doesn't it? --squadfifteen

I am curious about the line below:

Also known to be "pure assassin" at 638.


I have no frame of reference for the quote and the 638 number.
My sister was living in Hawaii and she sent me a key chain with the name "KELEKO" inscribed on it with the translation "GREG". I could be a tourist gimic, but I thought I might make mention of it...

Corrections[edit]

I made some corrections in the transliterations of the Ukrainian and Belarusian variants of the name. The letter Г is an h in both languages; the letter had been written as G which is the Russian pronunciation. 82.24.207.49 20:29, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

Dragos[edit]

The Romanian name Dragos - of slavic origin - is most certainly not a form of Gregory. It can be related to the - slavic - name Dragomir, historically frequent in Romanian speaking countries, also Dragan etc. People called Dragos do NOT celebrate their namesake day at St. Gregory's day, but rather at Shrove Tuesday, which is traditionally the namesake day for all whose names are not in the religious calendar. I suppose the mentioning of Dragos as equivalent to Grigore/Gligor was vandalism... merryXIV (talk) 16:40, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
