in reply to Name Space
My last name is Schumacher, and sometime back in school (way back really...) someone started calling me Schumi. To think that the nickname that stuck to me for the rest of my school career and beyond that was created by someone I didn't even like very much. Oh well...
For all those who are either living in Europe or know otherwise about a rather famous Formula One driver called Michael Schumacher, let me make two points:
- My nickname "Schumi" was created long before he even got to drive F1-cars...
- No, I'm not related to him in any way.
So this is the rather boring history of my nick. Thanks to George Sherston for this node. As I don't have the time to read all the replies right now, this is going to be a place to come back to for some time... :-)
