Family name Gardiner


You who know me know that I like languages and that sometimes it ends up really funny when you translate.


Today I watched a movie, För kärleken (For love), and noticed the name Gardiner roll over the screen.

So what about language and Gardiner?

It probably mean a total different thing where it origins from but in Sweden and Norway Gardiner means Curtains. Yes, what you hang in your window.

I really do not mean any bad about writing this. In the patent industry there are a whole market with experts with knowledge about this telling companies what to name and not to name products to avoid embarrassing name choices.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.

  1. Hi Annelie, I love the mishaps that happen with translations. Even the ones that are not funny, they convey a type of innocence because people are just trying to communicate. But yes, you are right, they can be funny. Happy New Year and all the best to you xo
