other families (always of British heritage) who shared this practice. I
assumed it was some kind of English custom, at least for males.
Linda and group,
You think that is bad.In working our family tree we found two very large
branches in Canada. They can have as many as 5 given names and you never
know which of those 5 they will be using as their "call" name or the name
that they go by. Talk about confusing when I am asking for info about
William and they come back with "Oh, you mean Bruce". And Bruce is the
fourth of his five given names!!!
