My children have called one another by some interesting names over the years. In an effort to remember some of these, I write them here. Were our life played out in the pages of a Russian novel, these would be our many names...
Simeon: Sim-min, Finni, Siminon, Cinnamon, Sim
Alexander: Aaaah-lex, Axe, Axe-Zander, Axis, Alexi
Jacob: Ja-bop, Ja-cup, Jacobs, Jakey-Rakey, Jake
Zachary: Zachy, Zach-Zach, Gracky, Zach-a-gee, Zach-O,
Nicholas: Nic-O-niss, Nico, Nic-nac, Nickle, Nickers
Title: From the Russian novel The Brothers Karamozov, by Fyodor Dostoevski(often shortened-- in the American way-- to The Brothers K) in which each character has at least seven different names.
