These answers are quite good and informative. The tattooed man was my Uncle Mike, my father's uncle. He was tattooed on every visible inch and the family was proud of him and loved him. He retired from a life career in the US Army.

Rajnovic is correct. There is no Y in the  Cyrillic alphabet. The spelling change happened phonetically, but my father's father, Joso Rajnovic, is quickly located in in the Ellis Island registry.

So, "Raj" is "King" and "novic" is "the son". The ancient eastern roots are clear.

I am a native speaker of Serbian language, and I have some experience in translating from and to Serbian. I can answer pretty much about language itself, its grammar and its characteristics. All questions in English, please, and don't ask me to translate songs, please please.
