Yeah, Kristofferson is a very traditional Arabic name lolKris is from Saudi Arabia. His father was the head of Aviation for ARAMCO. He was very involved in the horse farm and had a reputation for being a sweet and helpful boy.
Kris Kristofferson - WikipediaKristoffer Kristofferson was born in Brownsville, Texas, to Mary Ann (née Ashbrook) and Lars Henry Kristofferson, a U.S. Army Air Corps officer (later a U.S. Air Force major general). His paternal grandparents emigrated from Sweden, while his mother had English, Scots-Irish, German, Swiss-German, and Dutch ancestry. Kristofferson's paternal grandfather was an officer in the Swedish Army. When Kristofferson was a child, his father pushed him towards a military career.
At the age of 17, Kristofferson took a summer job with a dredging contractor on Wake Island. He called it "the hardest job I ever had."
Even if his father indeed worked in Saudi for a time, as you say, that sure as hell doesn't make him FROM there... WTF...
