I’m trying to find a family name to use as mn for my daughter. And searching through all the names, I’ve come across a couple of strange or odd nn’s. I was wondering if anyone else knows of any nn’s that aren’t really related to the person’s actual name.
Here is what I have so far:
[name]LaVerne[/name] - nn [name]Lolly[/name]
[name]Mary[/name] - nn Muszie (i don’t know how to actually spell it, but the pn is Muh-szhee, it’s hard to explain this pn, but it’s like sza sza gabore, where she s and z run together)
Stanely - stash or stashu (with the a pn’d as a short a - similar to [name]Tom[/name]) , but I know this is Polish for [name]Stanley[/name], so to me it’s not all that weird - to others it may be.
