“Did you hear wee Annie got away?” said a woman in the queue waiting to buy a stamp.
“Who was that?” asked her companion.
“Wee Annie Blair. She was Cameron to her own!”
So wee Annie Blair nee Cameron died. Wee Annie was married to Joe Blair for nigh on fifty years, yet she was still known locally as Annie Cameron.
My given name is Marie. Maaaaaare to my family, Mareeee to school pals. My mother and sister were both called Eileen. Visitors to the house or callers on the phone always said “Hello Eileen”, well two thirds of the time they were correct so why bother.
Later I became Darling, Mammy, mum and have now settled comfortably with Grannymar.
How are you known?
Is it by the name you were given at birth, a variation of it or by a name you picked yourself? If you were to change your name by deed poll what would it be?
