1) What does 63 mean?
Roxy: In Japanese, 6 is “roku” and 3 is “san.” “Roku-san” is how my name is pronounced in Japanese, so it’s kind of a play-on-words with my name.
2) Are you Persian?
Roxy: No, I’m American. Ethnically half Italian (Dad), half Lithuanian (Mom). The name “Modafferi” is a not-so-common Southern Italian name. It comes from the Persian word “El Modafer” which means “Victorious one.” (Sweet, huh?) In the 900s AD Muslims occupied Calabria and left traces of culture, names, etc.
