Proper Name?

Postby Emmy » 20 Oct 2007, 19:21

When discussing relatives many were not referred to with the name on the birth act but often had a 'nickname'. One person was always named -(sounds like- 'Rigooch') would his proper name have been Riccardo? grateful for any suggestions.

Emmy,

Another good possibility would be Enrico.
