In my passport, this line has: Nom / Efternavn / Name / Eponumo / Surname / Apellidos / Sloinne / Cognome / Naam / Apelidos (and in the "Given names" line, it has "Réamhainm (neacha)" which looks as Irish as anything can :)) ). My passport is from 1999, but I doubt they changed the system since then.
>I've just noticed with delight that the Italian for "Surname" is >"Cognome". Kewl.
Yep! I found that nice too :)) . Christophe Grandsire. You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
