OH, my bad, perhaps it was 'kull' then, also can be found as a last name in Estonia. I think it is another word for eagle in Estonian.

That's true of the UK too nowadays, except for the posh independent schools. They don't want the proles learning stuff like that; it might give them ideas above their station!

When I was growing up, back in the 1950's, there were grammar schools for any children bright enough to pass their 11+ exam, even poor ones like me. We were being groomed for university and for that you needed Latin at O-level (matriculation).

Greek was optional. We had a choice of Greek or German in the third year, but I was already familiar with German as it was the language my parents spoke, so I chose Greek.
