So "Florentius" was my great grandfather Ove's middle name. Once he Came over to the USA, however, most people ended up pronouncing it something like "Flatulence" when repeating it back, and he got a lot of flack for that. Thus his middle name is the reason my grandfather Walter does not have a middle name. But maybe he should have just chosen one that wouldn't be tease worthy, and focused more on getting my grandfather to spell things right, as of now most people in my family either didn't have the usual spelling of a name and ended up with flack anyway, missing letters, adding extra, and even having the more feminine spelling, sorry Uncle Michell.
