Lucia, how can you say you are a real milanese, and you have born in Tuscany? Ah.... logic: strange thing, I see....
You have a private message, now.
Urmaniac: WE only want to be sure that male and female are different matters. Don't you think that this is convenient? I've often noticed that in USA male names are used for girls. Andrea, f.i. Andrea from Andṛs, MAN. Greek.

Lucia, I am 51% Greek! However, I am not going to divulge the secret of my ancestry online. If you want to know more, there is always the Private Message (PM) avenue. I shall be looking forward to it, mia regazza!!

Lucia, you know that the love is mutual. That's why you have this wonderful saying, "una faccia una razza" which has been adapted by Greeks and has become part of the Greek vocabulary too. In fact, I was toying with the idea of mentioning it to you in my original post!
