Metevier is a misspelled, mispronounced French surname by way of Canada. I understand it is
a fairly common name in France, but spelled Metivier. They pronounce it "meh-tee-vee-yay"
over there. It means "person of unfathomable wisdom." OK, just kidding. It means "harvester,"
as in someone who harvests.
Anyway, a long time ago, my grandfather changed the spelling and pronunciation of our name
to sound "more American." My family now pronounces it: "meh-tee-vee-er."
With a name like Metevier, you can imagine that I answer to a lot of things. However, you can
just call me "Dan." Or, some people call me "Dr. Dan." Your choice; whatever makes you most
comfortable. I like them all.
