    That clip sounds sexy, I wish I had such a cool name. "Casey Hughes" just doesn't roll off the tounge like your name does.
     
  7. use as many of them wacky icelandish letters as possible.

    I like Ivar P. The last one is too long and the first two are too short.

    While I agree with the thrust of your point, I'm not sure you have penetrated the idea fully. You may wish to lubricate your thoughts to insert them completely into the minds of your audience.

    How about
    Ivar the Terrible?

    There is always
    Ivar the Great

    A traditional Icelandic one would be
    Ivar fra Rollurassbungu

    then you could try
    Ivar the Odd

    there's
    Ivar the Low.

    in a pinch there is
    Ivar son of Þórólf son of .....

    so many generations, so little in the name
    Þorskhaus
    PS
    I liked Ivar the Terrible the best.

    I like your new username, Ívar Þórólfsson. And I appreciate the mp3. I can't pronounce it as well as you can, but at least now I know how to pronounce it.
