Week 33: Nicknames. What was your childhood nickname, and what was the meaning behind it? You can also discuss the nicknames of other family members, both past and present.

We did not use nicknames.  I was always called Karen, and my sister was Melba.  My brother Kenneth for me has always been Kenneth, when he was in school there were 2 other Kenneth’s they were Ken and Kenny, and my brother was Kenneth.   Even today when I talk about or to my brother he is Kenneth, even though others call him Ken.  My mother was Inez or Mrs. Voss.  My dad’s name was Rudolf (not ph), a few called him Rudy, when we were lived in Mankato he was called R.K., but when we moved to Manhattan he was usually called Rudolf or Mr. Voss.
