My apologies for sending a messed-up email in my intended response on this.
That comes of too many interruptions and not enough concentration! I
intended to say:

It is quite possible that these were not abbreviations but given names in
their own right. To point to the popularity of both names, FreeBMD has over
a hundred Lottie registrations in the first quarter of 1890 alone, and
almost as many Peggys in the first quarter of 1914.

Happy hunting!

I have a Peggy WALTER born in London in about 1920 and a Lottie WALTER born
in London in 1890. Would someone on the list kindly give me their ideas of
what these abbreviations stand for. And how about Lily (which probably
stands for Lilian)? Thanks very much for your help.
