Meet OBay Tiz Magic "Ziga"
Elizabeth came on Tuesday to pick up Linford. He is now known as "Ziga" which is apparently means something along the lines of winnner/victory. I have looked it up and found it here where it says:
ZIGA (Žiga): Slovene form of Sigmund, meaning "victory protector."
And here where is says:
Sigismund (variants: Sigmund, Siegmund) is a German proper name, meaning "protection through victory", from Old High German sigu "victory" + munt "hand, protection". Tacitus Latinises it Segimundus. It looks like there is an older form of the High German word "Sieg" (victory): sigis, obviously Gothic and an inferred Germanic form, and there is a younger form: sigi, which is Old Saxon or Old High German sigu (both from about 9th century).
