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".

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.

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!
