What is my name and how do you pronounce it…
I saw a comment the other day on Tim Sneath’s post about FNAC that referred to me as Tom Relyea. No biggie.
Now today, I see it again here. (Cool work at that post by the way…)
My first name is “Rob”. I’m not sure where all the Tom references are coming from???
As long as I’m at it…I’ll talk about how to pronounce my last name, as it is difficult to get correct: Relyea is 2 syllables. “Rel” as in Relish and “Yea” as in Yeah team.
Relyea is French in origin. I grew up thinking I was 50% French and 50% German. Now that I have done more genealogy work (since I’ve started a family) my French percentage shrunk to less than 10%, in exchange for some English, Irish and more. The German shrunk as well to somewhere between 35-45%.
