My mother (2nd generation Irish) was baptised Mary Eileen. Her parents
(and everyone else for that matter) called her Eileen. As she got older, there
was confusion in her Medicare, Social Security, etc. so she began signing
everything Mary E. Then, because everyone called her Eileen, she started
signing many things M. Eileen.
Talk about being confusing!!!
