I suppose most of us knew it. But even so it is not quite nice to public someone's real name unless himself/herself does it...

I don't see why it has to be a secret. Nobody apart from a few I personally stay in touch with knows my last name.

ChrisZwolle, will you be so kind to reveal your first name please? It has been puzzling me for years...

But if you do want to get to me - now that a lot of you know my name is Alex - all you have to do is get to Mayrhofen and ask for this funny Dutch/Englishman and you'll find me in no time...

The older Dutch generation would pronounce it as "Sjors"

Funny how things are not always as they seem...

Chris might be very common in Slovakia, but in the Netherlands it's a rude word.

So by choosing it as his username, George is expressing an opinion of Zwolle??

Maybe, you'll have to ask him. I'm surprised that he'd choose a name like that, he seems like a very serious person.

Let me get it straight. It is something like me with username ShittyBratislava?

They pronounce "Joris" as "Sjors" or "George" as "Sjors"?

A lot worse. Wars have been fought over that name and the Reformed Church of the Netherlands has announced that the word "Chris" is a serious form of blasphemy. And they are the liberal ones...

As bad as a certain word I once used because I thought it was no stronger than "zut, alors!"?

God knows what the Flemings would do with that. Probably pronounce the two Gs in (at least) two different ways.
