One thought on “What’s in a (Nick) Name? Using Nicknames in Genealogical Research”

  1. There’s also the ever-confusing trio of Chip, Trip, and Skip.
    – Chip (“chip off the old block”) as shorthand for a Jr. or II of the same name.
    – Skip if the family name has skipped a generation.
    – Trip (or Trey) for the III.
