regarding our discussions of abbreviations... Christine Rose's book has a  
list of truncated and superscripted names: John, James, Joseph, Jerome,  etc.

Terry, 
I checked  Christine Rose’s “Nicknames Past  and Present, 5th ed.” and did 
not find anything.  I seen to  remember a TV show having a character that 
had an aunt Ida.

Anyone know if  Ida is an abbreviation for a woman's first name.  Hitting a 
 roadblock.  Thanks.
