Origin for nicknames. Have you ever wonder why Peggy is a nickname for Margaret and Bill for William? There is an explanation on how the nickname started. I have seen a more detailed site with a deeper explanation, unfortunately I cannot find that site. I still hope to find that site. There was a really good information. But Wikipedia has part of the explanation that I was looking for under "Nicknames for People". The first two links have explanations. The rest are some links that I picked up from the web. Pardon me if there are grammatical mistakes. It's after 2AM and my brain isn't exactly where it should be.
A day after, with the help of a friend, I was able to finally fix this post that I had intended to post yesterday. Yeah! This should be today's post, but it got switched with the post in which I said that I have problems with this post...So these two posts have been switched (I don't know how to fix that, but it's no biggie).
Here are a few out of many lists.
