Sep-19-06  radu stancu: Ha, I thought this name sounded too Romanian not to be so! :) In fact the original Romanian spelling is Iliescu; the "escu" ending is very common, historically meaning "son of", but it's also common for it to be transformed to "esco" especially for those who have lived in France. (ex: Eugène Ionesco - originally Eugen Ionescu)

I can't find any info on this guy, but since Juan = John = Ion or Ioan in Romanian his original name must have been Io(a)n Traian Iliescu. Which is funny considering that our current president is Traian Basescu and the one before him: Ion Iliescu. :)
