In the 1963 film "Hud", there is a young Caucasian male in his early 20s who goes by the name Lonnie
(which is sometimes shortened as Lon
was born and raised in Texas, and seemed to have no hispanic ancestry at all. His official name could have been Alonzo
, who knows - but I find it hard to imagine that a Caucasian Texan boy from that day and age could have such an "exotic" name as Alonzo
(plus, his surname was Bannon).
Is it not possible that Lon
are also independent nicknames in the English-speaking world (rather than the Spanish-speaking world)? Perhaps they could be nicknames for Laurence
In my country, both can be nicknames for Apollonius - but I don't think that that name has ever been frequently used in the English-speaking world.
So, my question to you is: what other names can Lon
be nicknames for?
Thank you for your input. :)
