@saab,
Oy, that's bad - considering that IKEA names can be really challenging at times -
we make fun of them a lot.

Svenja, please don't start using IKEA names now in the Chinese community Laughing

@CalamityJane,
Astrid Lindgren wrote a book about "Tjorven och SkrÄllan" . She is called Skrallan in English.
A German asked me if it was spelled Skrallan or Skrollan. He wanted to name his newborn baby girl this name.
I told him it is a nickname and means The old hat.
The poor girl got named Skrollan - the old hat. Hopefully he will never move to Sweden.
