appreciated.

In Welsh it's spelled the same, but pronounced /mæθɛu/

I'm sure my name exists in another languages, but I cannot say because I don't know exactly how they are spelled. Its origin is Biblical.

Gorący Kabanos (Polish) => I don't think it can be precisely translated into English or Spanish. "Gorący" means "hot" and "kabanos" we call thin pepperoni sausage. My nick actaully doesn't make any sense and only shows how psycho I am. => (Espanol) "Tipo de salchicha hecha de carne de cerdo"=> (Deutsch) "Heiße Kabanossi" ;)

I don't think it exist in Switzerland, in Romandie. It is considered a crime to mix water and wine. The first time I was proposed to drink that in Hungary, I just laughed. I couldn't imagine to do it either... Well, I ended drinking it all the time :).

It's the way the Romans drank it. Surely that makes it a sophisticated drink (I like to dilute my wine, too).

My username is a short form of 'Aristotle', a username I took a long time ago when I was young and silly. Maybe
some classicist can dig up the roots of that name? Judging by its descendants, the root 'Aristo' should mean
something like "fancypants" or "noble" or somesuch. I guess that would make it:

* 'Ädel' in Swedish
* 'Noble' in French
* '侯' (or a bunch of other characters, but I like this one) in Chinese

Les romains buvaient le vin de cette façon parce qu'autrement il était beaucoup trop acide... Faut dire qu'ils n'avaient pas encore les moyens d'aujourd'hui ;).

The Romans drank it that way because otherwise the wine would have been much too acid.
