I met a man today whose last name is Hassenflug. Apparently this means “flying rabbit” in German.
Because it’s a commonly accepted fact that in Germany rabbits fly often enough to spawn a surname.
I now need a little help from you.
Just off the top of my head the creative juices can spin at least three tall tales as an explanation for why someone would be named for a flying rabbit. But to tell you now would spoil the tall tale fun!
Instead, I hope you’ll share your best explanation for the flying rabbit surname in the comments. Tomorrow I’ll share your explanation as well as my own… And I can’t wait to hear what you think!
