3. Sookie D. Susan (can also be L. Sarah)

I matched up 10 correctly. Do I get a half point for matching Sookie with Sarah?
Molly or Mollie for Mary is also common.
got all 16. Looking forward to finding out what "Snapdragon" is a nickname for....
Just goes to show that I too have an obcession with names and write too much historical fiction - 16/16!
Quite a few of the short names were, I think, interchangeable, ie, some of the short names for Mary (like Molly, Polly) could have been used for Margaret (which had similar short names like Meggy and Peggy).
I actually did better than I though I would have; 14 of 16 (I got Margaret and Mary reversed). This was a fun quiz to take!
16 for 16! Kit confused me, i had to go through process of elimination.
I got 13, so I'm feeling very smart right now. and historical.
