"Gustav is the name of my youngest son. My parents and in-laws associate the name with old men long death but it's actually a very trendy toddler name here because everything old is new:-) Unfortunately, there were 3 Gustav's in all, in his kindergarten. I'll never forget the deep concern I felt for his mental state when he once said there were three of him in kindergarten. Of course he just meant that there were two other boys with the same name."
