  1. For your information, It is a fact that there is a nickname for Isidoros…..which is Derry. I know this as it was my Fathers name and is my 1year old sons name now. It comes from saying “little isidoros” in greek and is said Isideraki.You drop the Isi and the ak near the end and hey presto bobs your uncle.

    • My beloved brother was Derry.This name is too advanced for F…..g Greeks. Actually he was killed by a mouslim in Khartoum. Although I don’t have any thing against Muslims, this happened.In court in Sudan he was found innocent.Justice is blind. So Derry comes from Isidoros = Siderry = Derry.
