My Brother Victor was called Vicky for short by our foreign au pair. This went on till he'started school (why didn't our Mom intervene❤️) and then he protested -- as Vicky being a girl's name was hard to live Down & a constant source of teasing. Like the guy in the'song "A Boy named Sue" however, it only made him stronger- and he goes by Vic. A delightful guy.
