I'm sitting here adding my tree to this blog, and I can't help but wonder why people can't be more original when they are naming their children. I mean, I understand naming the first born son after his father to carry on the legacy of a name, but you don't name your 6th son the damn name! So much time could be saved by being a bit more creative.
It's the same with nick names. If your name is Thomas, your nick name shouldn't be John. How the heck do you get "John" out of Thomas, especially when your middle name is Joshua or William? And why in creation would you list a NICK NAME on an official document such as a census. John isn't your name, it's a nick name.
Just thought I'd share my frustration. :)
