Hi. On List of most popular family names talk page you wrote

Hmm. I'm Russian, and I think the Russian list is BS. Where's the data from? I have never even heard two out of four names on that list. --Lament

It looks like this article started out (Nov 2001) as complete nonsense and has gradually come good. There were originally two names under Russia: Tscherkasov & Dougorookiy. These look like a joke: Tscherkasov = Jerks off?

User:Rmhermen deleted Dougorookiy before your comment. Tscherkasov is still there but I'll delete it. That leaves Ivanov, Vasiliev & Deternov, all added by User:Menchi on 25 Dec 2002. From your comment there's still one of these you've never heard of. Try Menchi's talk page. Andy G 01:53, 12 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Well, Tscherkasov and Dougorookiy (or, I would say, Cherkasov and Dolgorukiy) are real Russian family names. Although by no means commnon. --Lament

Why hello there. Sarge Baldy 04:05, Feb 3, 2004 (UTC)

Knife image[edit]

I just wanted to complement you on Image:Knive_types.png. It is one of the most instructive images I've seen in quite a while, really does say a thousand words. Good work, and please make more diagrams like this sometime. Deco 23:54, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)
