When The Striker Hits The Flint

Erkkila means dwelling place of Eric.

ERIC is from the Old Norse name Eirkir, meaning "honorable ruler" or "all-ruler." The name was rarely used until the 1920s when it became popular in Britain. It became popular in the US in the 1970s.

My first name Ronald:

RONALD is the Scottish form of Reginald, which literally means "counsel-power" and has the connotation of "wise, judicious." Also from the Anglo-Saxon meaning "worthy of admiration."

My middle name Cody:

CODY is from the Anglo-Saxon 'codd,' akin to the Old Norse 'koddi,' and means "a cushion" or "a pillow." Also derived from the Irish surname O Cuidighthigh meaning "helpful person."

  1. That don't mean that I think I am some kind of ruler though.


My policy is: I will delete any comment that does not meet my specification for the truth.

Before you comment remember one thing. The vast majority of what I say are my own personal thoughts and insites. Though the norm for a reporter is to back up what he says with data and info I am not a reporter nor a pundit. I am a plain old American having my say..........
