  1. Doris Dickson says:

    My legal name is Doris Gail, but never went by Doris a day in my life. My grandfather nickednamed me Candy. I’ve gone by it for 56 years, but I would concede to being called Dee, D, or Dorie, but it’s too late for that now!

  2. Doris says:

    My given name is Doris, but I have always been called Dody. It’s how I know if people really know me or not. Either that, or it’s a Doctors office.
