Christine's book is a great investment.  It has helped me solve more than
one mystery.  Well worth the modest price.

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.
