The most awesome last name in the history. Usually dumb people question your irish heritage, obviously they arent mcpartlands. Most often abbv. as "McP" for sheer lazy-ness, but most can't put 2+2 together and equate McPartland to McP, so often the abbriviation ends up being explained(losing its effect) to those not so gifted in the common sense area. The fact that microsoft changes it to "McFartland" pisses me off, who has that frickin last name?
