Response to No, I don't
I'm sure glad no one's around who remembers my baby nicknames. As it is, however, only a few remember what I was called by some relatives at home. Being somewhat Southern, I had a sing-song name. You know, like Peggy Sue, Bobbie Jo, Billie Joe, and so on. My middle name is Lee, so some relatives called me "Kenny Lee." Could be worse, I suppose.
I have a first cousin whose name is Johnny. Not John; Johnny. My wife's brother's name is John but everyone calls him Johnny. My mother-in-law's name is Virginia; everyone calls her "Ginny." My grandmother's name was the same but people called her "Jenny." In my wife's extended family, there have been many names used over and over but there was one fellow in the 19th century named Nicholas. There was never another Nicholas.
Ever notice in high school how the cool kids, boys, anyway, had cool nicknames. It seemed like there was always a Chuck or a Chip around. The girls were named Barbara, Debbie, Susan and so on. Oh, how we date ourselves.
