Want To Know What Your Croatian Name Is?

This one was worthy to put here as soon as I saw it. I'm just sort of disappointed I didn't think of this first.  I probably would have changed it up here and there, or really gone all out with it, (Što je vaš Hrvatski pornič zvijezda ime?...Hrvatski nogometni zvijezda ime?, Hrvatski mafijaš ime, itd..hmmm....) ...Anyway an overall amusing and entertaining find. Not a bad idea from someone with no Croatian background, and some of the comment results show some people really got a kick out of it. Although she should at least start checking out this blog for interesting goings on in Croatia.. Fun for the whole gang to try out, Heck!... find a Croatian name for your pet, the mailman and the corner crack dealer too!......
