It's my real name. Well a dimunitive of Philippe Parent.

First name is the French corruption of the greek "Phileinippos" which means "Who Loves Horses".

Last name was handed down to me all the way from my ancestor, who landed here in 1651. He was illeterated and came here because there was a need for a butcher in the colony. Amazingly, he couldn't read or write, but he could draw and count, so he drew lines (Which acted as numbers) and animals to help him keep accounts, and drew a knife as his signature.

My middle name, not in my nick, is "Theodore". Which is Greek for "Gift Of God"

Neat, heh?
