Your name,in English slang,Rog, is exemplified by the phrase "Roger Moore".

He was a credit to his name when he played his main character, then (007, not The Saint)

Couldn't find a picture - bit wary of putting it through the search engine!!

Have found this though for the uninitiated (don't worry - it's clean!!)

On a holiday in Egypt once, spent a couple of days on a boat on the Nile. Myself and the other Brits had trouble pronouncing the name of one of the Egyptian crew, so someone had the bright idea of nicknaming him Roger. Every time he appeared he was greeted with cries of 'Roger the Cabin Boy', to much amusement.
Poor guy never did understand why he was so popular.
And yes I know, before anyone says it, I should get out more.

Well, I am learning things on this thread. I didn't know your name had that other double meaning either.

An alternate spelling of my first name has a rather unflattering meaning in the UK. I'm guessing my name isn't very popular over there.

I'm glad to see the song gets a mention on that page.

(Paul -- I meant my real first name has another meaning in the UK, not my GB name.)
