I'm fairly certain I've never known _a set_ of fraternal twins. It's of course
entirely possible that some people I've known not too well may have had
fraternal twins (or even single-egg ones) I've never heard of. Of course this

Interesting pronunciation of my name, anyways. Anglophones typically supply
whatever phone they have in "man" for the first syllable; do you have [a] there?
