Uh, err... thanx.
I'm from Germany. Eastgermany to be precise. The Name Marian is not uncommon for a boy there. It is a slawish version originated from the latin MARIUS (man from the ocean).

We use Marius in Greece too. A lot. But Marian no. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

You can have my absence of faith
you can have my everything...
