Re: Thoughts - Inititials versus given name
In Response To: Thoughts - Inititials versus given name ()
I grew up around two people with just initials. One was "Cousin QV" who was my father's age. When he went into the Navy in WWII, he became "Quincy Vernon" but surely never had any name other than QV before that. I knew his mother but never would have thought to ask what and why QV!
In my age cohort, a little younger than I, there was "LT" and as far as I know, he never got to be anything else. And it didn't stand for anything. Hmmm. I think he's still living. I should ask him, since he is in my database, tho not a relative.
