View Full Version : Is this a name?

07-08-15, 20:39
My older brother just remembered our grandmother, Emma Markkula, would always talk about 'Uncle Kulano' ( pronounced koo-la-no). Emma did have at least one brother that came to America and stayed with her when my mom was young, in Hibbing, MN for a short while.

We're wondering if the name Kulano is actually a name, nickname for her brother or does that word mean absolutely nothing and my brother heard it wrong.:confused:

If this word rings any bells with anyone, I'd really appreciate any comments.

Thank you, sue

Could it have been Kullervo?
