<A reverse case: my daughter Sarah has friends 
named Calista, Alison, 
Ellen, and Kelly, known as Callie, Allie, Ellie 
and Kelly. I don't 
*think* they do it to drive me crazy...but if 
they start calling Sarah 
by Sally, I am going to start calling them all 

Like the girls in John Crowley's Little Big, with
names that seemed designed to confuse their
father -- Lily, Lucy, Lilac and Tacy. 
This also reminds me of a family I read about in
a magazine, they had three girls called Scarlet,
Amber and Jade, a neighbour dubbed them "the
traffic light kids".........
