1. I have a friend whose nickname is Snowflake. We tried calling him by his real name, Eric, but it just doesn't seem to stick. :-)

  2. I've pretty much decided that if I have a son I'm going to name him Albert, after my father. It's kind of grown on me, and I know my dad likes having that name. Also, the kid will be unlikely to run into another Albert any time soon, since he will have been born after 1929! I really like going to the social security website and looking up the most popular names of the 20s and 30s. So many Mabels! Good luck with naming! I like to think of all the parents who sweat and toiled over their children's names, only for the kids to end up with nicknames like 'Stubbs' and 'Doodle'.
