Re: [Fedora-art-list] New member

Thanks for welcoming me Martin.

You stand correct at your point. The letter-to-letter transcription is correct, but most English user find Georgios (I am also called Giorgos) confusing, so I use the Roman name George, which has Greek origin (Γεωργός) and it means Farmer.

Giorgos AKA George Zarafidis

Hi George and welcome to team. I am looking forward to working with
you :) Your SerTUX is great!

BTW. I noticed in your displayed mail name that your name is Γεωργιος
Ζαραφίδης which I would transcribe to latin alphabet (with my limited
knowledge of greek alphabet thanks to me studying physics) as Georgios
Zarafídes (letter to letter transcription => don't read it as if it were
English), yet you signed with George Zarafidis - I am wondering whether
you just prefer to be called by English speakers George, or whether it
is the correct "romanization" of your name.
