Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech "Schando" for Alexander #austria-czech


Doug Mason
 

My mother always refers to her brother Alexander (born Vienna, 1909) as
"Schando".

Am I correct in assuming this is a manipulation of the latter portion of
his name to create a term of familiarity?

Is (or was) this name "Schando" common?
