-as everything!

Lithuanians are used putting –as behind pretty much every masculine name. Lately one of students from my course was talking about Josifas Stalinas and when I went to see ‘Skyfall’ it starred Dzeimsas Bondas. During the Kaunas Film Festival I saw a documentary about Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn, or, better said, Antonas Corbijnas. The sign on the desk of the leader of one of the Swedbank offices here states ‘bosas’, boss. They appreciated my last name when seeing it on my bank documents. Some other popular names in Lithuania: Vytautas, Gediminas, Algirdas, Rimas, Arturas, Martynas, Adomas, Mykolas, Petras. 

-as, -as, -as :)!
