Odd Name – Not Vital

While researching the Romansh post, I spotted the name Not Vital.

Doesn’t even look like a name, does it? But it is.

Not Vital is a Romansh artist. He was born in Sent, Switzerland, in 1948.

His name is pronounced “note vee-TAL.” (You can hear him introduce himself at the eight second mark in this video.)
