Interesting Trivia -

  "Anno Domino" (or A.D.) has been generally thought to mean "After Death", or after the death of Christ. Not so. Literally translated from Latin, it means the "Year of Dominion", and loosely translated as the "Year of Our Lord".

  B.C. ("Before Christ") is a correct translation.
