And you know what's funny? My English name Eugene and its etymology -- Eu- (good) + gene (gene).
Speaking about my name, actually I'm being serious here. I chose my English name as a kind of tribute to my parents. No matter how smart, intelligent I am, no matter how I possess any of other good facets of my personality -- it should be attributed much to my parents. I exist as who I am largely, if not totally, because of them. :D My name constantly reminds me to be modest and humble.
