Perhaps you've seen it on a friend's hand. Perhaps you have one on your own hand. Perhaps you've been asked or you're wondering: what does it mean and does it represent anything? In case you haven't guessed yet, I'm talking about the very distinctive ring, which most all Latvians wear... the Nameja gredzens.
This article appeared in a college newsletter many years ago in response to the many questions I received regarding my own Namejs.
