I don¹t know what part of the country you¹re researching in this case, but
in PA I¹ve come across the name Salome (PA Dutch/German) as Sally, Sarah,
Susan, Susannah and probably a few other iterations I¹ve forgotten.

Here¹s a chuckle for the day ‹ one family¹s nicknames were Bep, Jumpy
(pronounced ³Jumbie²), Bepzel, Nutzel, Baldy, Bumbum, Woozy, Schmitty and of
course there¹s always Junior (pronouced ³Chunie²).

Subject: [APG] Nicknames

Hey folks,
I do not wish to start a major thread but wanted to ask all of my friends on
APG if they have ever seen the name of Sarah interchanging with Susan as one
maybe being a nickname?
I found a will with a daughter named Sarah and later in life she married and
forever after that she was called Susan. Susan is on her tombstone.
