Re: Is Fannie/Fanny a Nickname? #general


I have seen many Fani/ Fany names recorded in birth, marriage, death
records and the 1869 census [as available through H-Sig ]. It seems to
have been very popular in my family who were clustered in the
Nyitra Megye in the early 19th century before moving to Budapest and
Vienna. It appears to be the given name and not a nickname for anything.
