My mother's name was Henrietta. Unless she was signing a document, she never went by that name. Not that she didn't like it; it was just too formal-sounding. She was born on the US East coast and the common nickname at that time for Henrietta was Henet. Personally, I never liked that nickname. One of her brothers was in the habit of giving everyone nicknames, usually behind their backs. He named my mother "Penny", because of the sky-is-falling-chicken named Henny Penny. Nobody back East ever called her that, but when she moved to the West coast, everybody called her by that name. In my opinion, she was much more a Penny, than a Henrietta or Henet. Sorry for the length of this post.
