Thread Name: Folklore: On having two first names
Subject: RE: Folklore: On having two first names
Myself and my siblings were all blessed with two "christian" names and in the case of my late sister three!
We were all refered to in day to day use by the latter of these, my brother Charles Michael being called Mike, my sister Margaret Patrica Ann was known as Ann and myself was only known as JAMES NICHOLAS on Sundays OR when I was in serious trouble.
this in order to clarify location was in Lancashire (England) in the late 50's/60's
