Lito, Choosing names
I don’t have a grandmother called Lito, but they were going to name me either Lito or Danae, because my grandmothers’ names didn’t do the trick. One has a terrible name, which doesn’t even have a name-day, and my cousin was going to be named after the other one. So it was going to be one of the two. Danae doesn’t have a name-day, so I got Lito. I like it, because it is rare and beautiful.
I know my great grandfather changed our surname. That was not our surname. I think our real one was Stilas. I don’t know why he changed it. I can’t find out. Nobody knows.
