No clue. I'm surprised they never use a question like that when they have the weekly "ask Andy" stuff.

The surname "Roderick" is Saxon in origin and means: Rich in counsel, from Rode, counsel, and ric, rich.

That tells us very little about Roddick's background, but it is possibly related.

Way to get things done, Q :bigclap:
