In yesterday’s post about the name Drene, I mentioned actor/entertainer Don Ameche.
Don, born Dominic Felix Amici in 1908, married his wife Honoré in 1932. They had six children:
- Barbara (adopted)
- Cornelia (adopted)
The kids were known by nicknames, though, and most of those nicknames were perfect rhymes:
What do you think about a sibset with rhyming nicknames: yea or nay? (Does it depend upon the size of the sibset?)
