OT again,

I'm originally from the UK, although I spent 21 years in Canada before moving to the US eight years ago. In both the UK and Canada 'Adrian' is exclusively male, from the Roman emperor 'Hadrian'. He's best known for building Hadrian's wall, a stone wall across the north of what is now England, to keep the Picts out of Roman territory.
