Subject: RE: Folklore: On having two first names
Going back to my father, because of the way his name was stressed, there' s quite a few lowlanders thought his name was Willie rather than John Wille. There were also quite a few nicknames - some of them hereditary. The original Buckie was so called because as a small boy he used to hang around the visiting East Coast fishermen (Buckies).
