Why Hroni4eskij Finn?

The nickname Hroni4eskij Finn was given to me many years ago by one of my friends. It is a combination of words in Russian “Хронический Финн”, which I usually write in Roman alphabet and with the digit “4”. Translated into English it means “the Chronic Finn”.

The history of this sobriquet is simple: at that time I was really obsessed by Finland and all that it involves. My biggest dream was to move to this country and become a “real” Finn. Despite the fact that my preferences have changed (however Finland is still one of my favorite countries), I decided to keep this name.
