It would be funnier if it was "Beowulf is min nama!" and then 
whatever in Greek... Ok, maybe just the language geeks would get a 
laugh out of that.

(Ok, once at Kalamazzo, a couple of people got on the same elevator 
with me, talking quite animatedly in some Germanic tongue. I was busy 
perusing the session catalog- until suddenly I realized that they 
were conversing in Anglo-Saxon! I couldn't join in because all I 
could come up with at the moment was "Hwaet! We Gar-Dena   in 
gear-dagum/ theod-cyninga, thrym gefrunon..." But it was way cool to 
actually hear the language used... as language.)
