I’ve had some friends ask me why I am using the name Addy

Well, I don’t want to use my real name and Addy was a nickname given to me by my favorite uncle.

When my brother was little he could not pronounce my name so he called me Addy. That name stuck with my uncle and he still calls me Addy today. I love it when he calls me that and he is the only person who calls me by Addy. It brings back wonderful memories.

Did you have a childhood nickname? Did it stick? How did you get your nickname? Do you think you could guess my real name?

Please tell me if you have a nickname and how you got it. Do you have nicknames for your kids?

Why is the nickname for Richard, Dick?
