  1. Sergio Says:

    The name of a friend of mine is Alfredo M. The name of his son is Alfredo M. His father too is Alfredo M.
    He has got many male cousins among the prolific relatives: do you want to guess which is their name? Obvioulsy… Alfredo M.!
    I don’t know how many Alfredo M. there are all around the world. But that’s why they are from south Italy – like Al capone, although they are really honest people – and a free choice today too is no possible, if you don’t want to make angry all the tribe where you live…
    It’s the same reason about a name like “Alfonso” I guess.
    Bye.
