A name is a name is a name and call it any thing else and its still a name.
And boy they sure have some different ways of nicknaming some.
Like we have Robert....he can be Rob or Bob
Steward can be Stew
Richard can be Rick, Rich or even Dick
Cassandra can be Cassie, Cass, Sandra, or even Sandy
Abigail can be Abby or Gail
But the one that I dont understand is Jack can be called John and vise -versa.
Take my name It's Gale but most girls spell it Gayle or Gail but no I get stuck with a man version spelling like the wind. (now granted it kinda fits since I talk so much and am long winded)
And what a bout a girls name being Jackie? We dont call her Jack.( she would probably hit you if you did)
But no matter what the name its still just a name.
I'm just glad I was not born during the 70's when some poor kids got name weird names because their parents were part of the "free" times.
Hope your all having a good week.
