When I was taken to my foster parents, aged 3 months, the Social worker forgot to tell Mum my name so when Dad came home he nicknamed me Susie Blue. (No phone in 1960!) When they found out my real name was Denise Mallin they didn't like it & got permission to have me baptised Susan Denise. My foster sister, Gina, (short for Georgina - which she hates!) always wanted a middle name. As she was born on St Patricks Day she adopted Patricia as a teenager, but now uses Maria??
I came on to this site to find out why so many South African people use initials instead of names (eg AB de Villiers)Can anyone tell me?
