    In any language?

    I ask, because I was playing COD4: Modern Warfare and I came across a player that used their clan tag as... "Kier" and the first thing that come out of my mouth was "WTF? Is THAT who I think it is!?"

    It was kind-of odd to me. I know Kier is a person, but a word, place, or meaning? No idea.

    It's a far more familiar (if not widely used) name here, given the prominence of Kier Hardie, long before Dullea (although both use the Welsh/Irish EI spelling rather than the Scots IE variant).
