Careful expanding those names too folks. I can’t tell you how many times when I was a kid a teacher/adult/whoever would holler at me when I was acting up by screaming “ELIZABETH!” I’d blithely continue doing what I was doing. They would get all riled up and yell at me for “Not answering when they called me.”
Um, my name isn’t short for anything. It isn’t long for anything. It’s 4 letters a pretty common name in it’s own right (Thanks Elvis). Even so, a few folks even manage to have to shorten Lisa, to Lee.
I have a friend Kathleen who I have known for years. I’ll be damned if I can get her name right and her name is gotten so wrong so much, she doesn’t particularly care what you call her. She answers to any of the Cathy/Catherine/Kat/Kitty Kat/Catastrophe varieties.
