Family Lore

Mom tells me that her Tišma family line (her mom's maternal grandpa and his folks) were also known by the last name of Varuna. To say it more simply, my great-grandma's maiden name was Mika Varuna/Tišma. I google the name and find out Varuna was the Vedic "god of the sky, of waters and of the celestial ocean, as well as a god of law and of the underworld." Nice! (Tišma is just a Serbian and Croatian last name referring to "tišina" meaning silence. Lame by comparison.)
