Cinder Posted January 17, 2012 Share Posted January 17, 2012 The nickname thread reminded me of a couple of funny stories. Years ago I worked with a woman whose mother's name was Lila. One day a letter came in the mail addressed to Mrs. D. (Lastname). Friend was in high school at this time and went to mom confused because mom's name starts with an L. Turns out mom's name was really Delilah and (like the example in the other thread) she didn't want to be associated with Samson's girlfriend. The other story is about assigning kids nicknames because 2 or more have the same name. Ds was on a soccer team with 2 boys named Nicholas. Both went by Nick. So one of the Nicks decided to make things less confusing. He adopted the name Onion. I actually didn't know his name was Nick until I met his mom. She introduced herself and said she was Nick's mom. I must have looked confused because she rolled her eyes and said with a laugh, "Onion's mom!" Anyone else with a funny nickname story?
