"Ignatius was my grandfather, who's parents came from Slovakia (I must add, it sounds like a much better name in Slovak). Everyone just called him 'Shine', though the reason eludes me. Truth be told, I didn't learn his real name until I was 12!
I'd never wish this name on a child nowadays, but I really do like the Slovak nickname for it." Jun. 29, 2005:
