I was looking at the profiles of ELU moderators and came across the profile of Matt E.(can't read the last name)

enter image description here

Now, how do I read their last name? What character set is used? How's it pronounced? Sorry if I sound silly but let's say my curiosity got the better of me.

Pronounce my surname /ɛlən/. As in Ellen DeGeneres or 'elen of Troy.

It's the regular font, displaying Cyrillic characters.

    Great to hear it straight from the horse's mouth! Well, in this case, a weird greenish yawning alien's! :) :P

    The exact font, I believe, is Black Crag Cyrillic.

    You should have answered: "My name is Ellen. Matt Ellen."

    Honestly? Given the profile image, I was expecting something a response a bit more like "Are you sum koinna git!? Me name... iz Matt. E. WAAAGH!" Jan 31, 2016 at 5:25
