Most of the nicknames make at least some sense. But the one I never did figure out is how "Margaret" became "Peggy"!

Same here. I've known at least two Margarets that were called Peggy, and they couldn't explain it either.

There's a little town in Nebraska named Steinauer. To the locals it's "Steener".

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That is true, I aught to know as I live there! I use the correct pronunciation when talking to strangers though. If you use the "correct" pronunciation to many locals they will have a blank look on their face and say "huh?" :lol:

Similar things happen when you mention be-uh-trice, NE, Char-lit MI, Char-lot NC, and la-fay-et IN.

By the way, it's char-lot MI, char-lit NC, law-fiy-et IN, and be-at-rice, NE.

I think it must have roots in Are-can-sus,or is it Are-can-saw? Don't get that confused with Your Kansas , Their Kansas and My Kansas.

What can you expect with guys running the place for years having names like,

Mickey Dale "Mike" Bebee

Michael Dale "Mike" Huckabee

James Guy "Jim" Tucker

William Jefferson Blythe III "Bill" Clinton

Had a foreign exchange student from Japan. I'm sure even HE could not spell or pronounce his name. I called him Toyota, he smiled. Wonder I didn't get fired!
