Re: Given Names Pepi and Betti #hungary

that's a tough question. i suspect the answer is "both". in some cases, i think
parents named children based on a popular nickname, such as "boske", and never gave
a second thought to the "proper" name, whereas others named them "erzsebet"
officially, but used the nickname anyway. i haven't noticed any particular pattern
. and in b/m/d registers, the registrars seemed to record names like pepi and mor
without a problem.

This question concerns the names Peppi/Pepi, and Betti.

Were these given (at birth) names, or, were they nicknames for Josefina and
Erzibet respectively?
