Did you have a nickname? How’d you get it?

My maiden name is Pam Neal ... A Jr. high friends older brother used to call me Spam Noodles.

When I was little I was Pammy and my cousin was Tammy. My great grandfather was an immigrant from Holland and spoke Dutch better than English and he thought they were the silliest names he ever heard.

When I was about 9 I put my foot down and was no longer going to be called Pammy. My grandma struggled with it so much at my grandpa's funeral when I was over 40 my grandma called me Pammy and then said she was so sorry, I was always Pammy to her. I told her I stopped caring if she called me Pammy about 25 years ago! She said she wish she knew that LOL !
