Have you ever known somebody that you called one name for years only to find out later it was their middle name? Or maybe, like me, you had a nickname that almost everyone called you. My nickname was Dink. (It still is to some people). That name was so pervasive that at my high school graduation several friends didn’t know my actual name when they heard it announced. It followed me for years after high school. I had to move to another state to finally be rid of it.
