I grew up with many nick-names; most of them have followed me all of my life. Most of you know me by “Par” or some variation of that. The nick-name “Par” came from the first initial of each of my given names (P)aige (A)nnette (R)oper.
As an adult I have people that only know me by “Paige” but I have many more that only know me by “Par”. And I have ‘dual-citizenship’ with some people who are constantly stumbling over one because they can’t remember who I am to the group of people I’m around.
Other variations I’ve been called over the years are:
Paigey-Par, Par-Par, Parkay, Parcheesy, Pargery, Pargey.
What nick-names did you have growing up? Did you hate them? Love them? Use them still?
