Kirsi Bertolini August 02, 2005

Thanks for stopping by Terry! And don't feel bad, a lot of people do and just about everyone calls me kris until I tell them you should pronounce it like "curse" with and I in the end. Actually you supposed to roll the r but americans just can't do that..

Kirsi is very popular name in Finland, it actually comes from old saami language from lapland and I've been told it means "frozen ground". Not so appealing! #1669598
