While my name is Jeanene, a lot of people turn it into "Jeannie," as my grandpa did.  I just thought the modidfied spelling had more magic to it.
 

BTW, Spaw, I always assumed you took your nickname because you were the proverbial
"cat's paw" -- i.e., the one who gets suckered into doing other people's
dangerous/dirty work! (It's an old fable-- Aesop or someone like that.)  But I like the bit about your cats playing your dulcimers.  Mine just try to do data entry on my computer.

Like many others, when asked for a nickname (which seems like a strange term on its own), chose bydand; which is supposed to be a trait of my family - bydand meaning 'lasting' or 'enduring', so i'm told.

Still guesting because I don't know if I really belong here, but I like the company, and people here were extremely helpful with two queries I posted about songs.

My main interest is uilleann pipes, to which I graduated from tin whistle. I took up the whistle about 1965 in the midst of the Irish version of the folk revival (Clancy brothers, Dubliners etc.) because it was easier to learn just the tune and play it through a few times rather than having to remember all those hard verses.

Anyone care to guess the inspiration for the above nickname, which I will use if I do sign up? Clues: Sorcha Dorcha and that well-known mode of transport, the SeaCat.
