Commander Crabbe Folklore: On having two first names (51* d) RE: Folklore: On having two first names 30 Mar 11


My Father was from the Midlothians and my mother from Essex.

My eldest brother was called David, Thomas, Wilfred, Nicholas.
My Sister was Patricia, Mary, Ann
And I was Christopher, James, Thomas

My brother was named (In order) after my Father David, My Grandfather Thomas and My Uncles Wilf and Nick.

My sister doesn't appear to be named after any family members at all and my first two names are not family originated although my third was after my grandfather.

David was called Dave, Patricia was Pat and I for some unknown reason was called Jimmy by my parents unless I was in trouble and then it was "Christopher James". However now that they have both passed on I am generally called Chris with the exception of a few naval friends who still call me "Sam" which was my Naval nickname.

I am also sometimes called by "names unrepeatable" however I am now quite used to such!!
