Where Everybody Knows Your Name...

I read this article and was reminded of the theme song from Cheers...

 Basically, a couple honeymooning in Israel gave a ride to a couple of hitchhiking soldiers. They were very impressed with one of them, a soldier by the name of Lior, that they decided to name their son after him.

They knew nothing else about him, and when little Lior got a school project to find out the origins of his name, he wanted to find out more about his namesake. They are now on a search for Lior, who was "at the Mahanayim Junction. One of the soldiers was Lior, who was a sergeant in Military Intelligence serving at Har Bental. He was dark skinned, the couple is not sure if he is of Ethiopian or Yemenite descent. They say he had good English and was very handsome, and that they fell in love with him"..

Israel is a small country, but Lior is not an uncommon name. I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually find him, because Israel is a small familial country. Best of luck to them...

"Sometimes you wanna go, where everybody knows your name...."
