Similar Names May Not Be the Same People

Be careful assuming who is who when children have similar names. Just because the names "sound close" does not mean that they are the same child. It took me a while in one family to straighten out Lucinda, Lucena, and Lucy. It turns out that Lucy was the diminutive used by Lucinda and that there were only two daughters Lucinda (Lucy) and Lucena.

Sometimes I think people do these things on purpose.
