FUN FACTS ABOUT MY LAST NAME
I'm related to every Hrim in the United States. I am very likely the only person in the world with my name.
- 1.It's pronounced like "rim."the H is entirely silent. So. Many. Rimjob. Jokes.
- 2.I grew up thinking it was Polish, but it is actually Ukrainian.My dad's family is Polish-Ukrainian and lived between changing borders.
- 3.The Ukrainian spelling is грім.It is pronounced sort of like chrim (the "ch" is similar to a Hebrew ch but not quite as harsh, and the "r" rolled just a little bit)
- 4.It translates to Thunder. 🌩
- 5.There is a Ukrainian folk band called HRIM.
- 6.My grandpa has cousins here in the US who still pronounce the rolled r.I think this has to do with coming to the US at different times but idk
- 7.Hrim, pronounced Hreem is a Vedic mantra related to the sun.But that's just coincidence. Also I know nothing about this except that's it's the first thing on google when you search Hrim. So let me know if this is incorrect!
