Our next video is out and if I might quote my teammate: “It’s Cumberlicious” XD

Benedict Cumberbatch is famous for his odd name – but what does it have to do with Barbados? How do surnames work in Iceland, what do Swedes do about their boring names, and why are almost 40% of all Vietnamese people called Nguyen? We’ll tell you the surprising answers!

PS: keep watching til the very end!

An interesting and fun video about where names come from. It’s good to see how culture and history interact with language, and with naming practices! And the Cumberbatching never hurts. ^_^

Ooo this is pretty fun
