Hello everyone, as you can see my last name is Hage-Hassan. In lebanon I used to spell it Hajj, sometimes even El-Hajj Hassan. It really doesn't matter, all my relatives spell it El Hajj-Hassan. I guess what really matters is knowing your roots........people will know who you are when you "represent":) Spelling and the right way of writing a name is significant but not the ultimate way for us all to communicate or get a hold of each other........Back home, everyone knows everyone, and if you're a Hage-Hassan and spelled your name Jacobs, you're still known as a Hage-Hassan. Peace everybody....live each day to the fullest. ~Mimo
