Re: Dick

Having been through the gauntlet of my nickname at school (A certain advert on UK TV only increased my misery in the 70's) same as my father, my eldest has adopted it proudly upon leaving school. I have to admit while we tried to preempt names that would lead to bullying, my daughters name did get a twist on it that wasn't foreseen at the time of choosing.

An odd little quirk on naming my kids that I noticed while driving home from the maternity hospital with the youngest. The eldest child's, middle initial is the same letter as the next child's first name, while their middle initial is the first letter of the youngest.

Totally unplanned, the naming convention, not the child.
