    Petronella (everyone called her “Pate”) and
    Leonilla (her nickname was “Onie”)

    In grade school, a friends’ father’s first name was ‘Burns’ and he was married to ‘Glennis’. Not sure that either used nicknames, but those names were unusual.

    I always wondered what the heck was up with Jack being “short” for John (or is it John being short for Jack)?

    WTF?
