    Congrats Volkbert.

    Thank you all for the kind replies!!! I will print them all so that my son can read it when he is old enough to do so.

    I thought the name means: leader of the folk. I have a book with german names but can't find it right now. I am glad you like the name too. It's hardly used in the Netherlands. We wanted this name long ago.

    I will do everything to make him interested in WWII. Today I showed him my new militaria room and his touched my waffenrock :D

    Here is picture of my little boy, four days old.

    Being Dutch, Volkbert, you must also get your 'wee man' interested in motorcycles. Then you can bring to the Isle of Man for the TT [​IMG]

    Volkbert--don't forget what I told you to do when the baby starts teething.

    Have a bottle of W-H-I-S-K-E-Y handy so you can dip his teether in it and give the teether to him and the whiskey will do no harm to him and will not only make the pain go away but, also make him quit crying and go to sleep. [​IMG]

    Believe me--it works--my father use it on all my Brothers and my Sister and myself. [​IMG]
