Margaret too now that I think about it...how did they get Peggie from Margaret?
Fail. There are plenty of younger guys named Adam around today.
I think he’s saying it’s the oldest name by default.
That's a good question, my late sister-in-law was Margaret, but we called her Maggie, and I think Meg is short for Margaret, like Liam is short for William
I guessing you are between 25-35. am I close?
I whiffed on that one too lol...I thought he was joking that it was overly common...didn't even go that way; clever somb
I know, but that's not the point of the thread.
My comprehension is sound
No fair using names from Rocky, the Flying Squirrel
My grandmother on my dads side was Sigrid
Had an aunt named Doris
My wife's name is Margaret and when she was younger she went by "Margie". It's funny to see her long time friends and family calling her that as all I know her is as Margaret. The family's first born women are all a variation of Margaret for the last few generations. Her mother is "Peggy", her grandmother was "Margo", her daughter is "Megan", and her granddaughter is just "Marge", but all their names are "Margaret" on their birth certificates.
Heck, my grandmother and aunt were Margaret but they both went with the name of "Peggy". Never figured that out myself.
LOL...I did not make the connection. I'm glad I did not make a comment on that. As I know a lot of "Adams" and they're not old!
Dorthy or Dottie
Mildren Wife's middle name if you want a fight call her Mildren
Very interesting...I like these bits of info and appreciate the breakdown/schooling. Kind of cool how her family did the JR thing on the lady side...I know John can go Jack, James go Jim, Henry is Harry and Harold, etc. but not a name that has 5 other pseudos Pretty cool
LOL, yeah but then there's Boris Karloff, and Natasha Kinski
