Thread Name: BS: 'Mudcat' and other Unusual Nicknames
Subject: RE: BS: 'Mudcat' and other Unusual Nicknames
An old family friend had no real given names, just the initials J.C.. it was because of an old practice I have occasionally heard of; the baby wasn't expected to live, and just initials were given. But we never knew him as anything but "Buzz". His baby brother tried to call him "brother", it came out "buzzer", and he was marked for life.
