Comments for the name Vercingetorix

Comments for VERCINGETORIX:

The famous Gaulish bearer of this name as mentioned in the listing is a very big deal in France, along with Charlemagne, King Clovis and Napoleon Bonaparte. He is to the French what Geronimo or the heroes at the Alamo are to Americans -- doomed leaders of men who fought for what they believed in. Because of his conspicuous notarity, and also because Vercingetorix is "strange" and such a mouthful, no Frenchman would name his son this. It would be like naming your son, Sitting Bull Smith.
