I just recently read about a small boy called "Geezer". Geezer in the UK is used to mean "Fellow" or "Man", eg: "The geezer in the shop gave me a discount". Hard to explain unless you know the context Geezer is used in, but it's a weird name!
I have to say it comes down to who you have on your team (night or day). If one person is not pulling their weight, we all feel it.
Of course, lazy and hard working people exist on all shifts all around the world.
I find the comments on the daily mail to be offensive in the extreme. Comparing LCP to Auschwitz and hospital staff to Nazi SS members? Beyond offensive, and I will no longer give them the time of day or their sponsors an audience for their ads.
I think so. Like Katie is a nickname for Katherine, but also a name in it's own right. Same with Harry (pet form of Henry) and Charlie. I don't see the problem. Now, if you're thinking of Honey or Darling or Bear, then no :)
While I will never publicly comment on the name choices of my friends or co-workers, I do wonder how easy little Boo Boo or Dracula (not the names of any actual friends or co-workers, but some are in "that" genre!) will have it being taken seriously when they are older.
