I don't get it.
There are so many people with weird or unusual names, that I would not be surprised if there was one or more.
You have to know Arab immigrant culture to get it.I don't get it.
No, not only.You have to know Arab immigrant culture to get it.
There are alot of people who are immigrants to a country and get the country's first names. It could be a step in assimilation. It's really not just Arab Christians who do this. You can have Russian-Americans calling their child John instead of Ivan. It's especially true if you are talking about the third generation. It's so common with Italian or Polish Americans.
Sad.Church in Liskowate (Souther Poland): firstly Orthodox, than Greek Catholic, later Latin, now not used. Good symbol of many villages in Souther Poland that used to be Orthodox, later embraced (often uncounsiosly) Greek Catholicism, later some of them came back to Orthodoxy, some of them became Latins - especially it's about places where local Eastern people were settled by forces, now this church, as many others, formally belong to Roman Catholic Church, but is not used anymore.
