My father's 1917 Manhattan birth record names him Louis, but starting when he was 3 years old, the census calls him Lawrence.  In my lifetime, he was always known as Larry, though he never formally changed his name. This suggests to me that someone else may have done the same thing. Dad didn't know why his mother used a different name, but we surmise he may have been a sickly child.
