WPC: Nomen est omen

The name is a sign, they say. No wonder then that my name means “eat” in Roman dialect.

An overview of my blog in the last week shows that I posted six times even though I’ve been visiting my country of origin, and that pleases me. Let’s see what there was:

I’ve got much more stuff to show you from here, for example a marvellous set of staircases. Coming up when I resettle back home. Tomorrow we leave here and soon the normal schedule will resume. I know I’ve been absent from your blogs for the duration of my travels.

And yes, elsewhere in Italy they say “mangia”, but in Rome they pronounce the word for “eat” just like my name: “Manya”. And then I do.

Let’s have a look at some other names that I’ve found in the last ten days or so in Slovenia. (You will have to click on the first photo to open the gallery and read the captions.)

    1. Heh, don’t know, Joey… I went to eat in another hamburger joint – they are growing like mushrooms in Ljubljana – and was annoyed at lack of plates, stickiness and price vs. quantity. Who the hell invented those? 😉 And thanks!

    Is your name pronounced as “magna” with the -gn sound? Also in my corner of Italy it is used to say “eat”! Magna is also used to indicate something great, though!

    1. Yes, Sara, it rhymes with ‘lasagna’. Magna lasagna, yum! 😀 I thought only in Roma they say ‘eat’ this way and that elsewhere it was ‘mangia’. Good to know, thanks!

        It’s quite an odd Latin root actually.
