I hate being called David!

When I was young if I was naughty my Gran would always call me 'David', instead of the usual 'Dave'. Flasheart does it to annoy me (works!), as do a few other friends, especially when I do something 'bad'. Same went for my Gran when she was a kid, her parents called her 'Edi' but when she was naughty it was 'Edith!' - she always knew when she'd been naughty.

Of course telling you lot this will just result in more 'David!' but at least I know who to kill! :twisted:

    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    I too hate being called David... but that's coz my name's Alex. When people call me David I tend to ignore them.


    I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.

    Ok, Dai, or Daio, as we say.

    Llanwnda, one in Gwynedd and one in West Wales, is "The place of David" apparently.

    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    My wife and mum call me David, mates call me Dave. At work I am also David
    Dave as is Dave Cameron makes me cringe.

    Be happy as David...

    Who's that football player, the one who's name is David, but all the commentators call him,

    DAVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED...?
  • There was a bloke at work and his name was

    David David.

    Always thought it showed a little lack of imagination on behalf of his parents.

    I had a Manager once, Michael Michaels. he was Greek, perhaps something was lost in translation. I hate people who abbreviate my name (which isnt Stewie Griffin), it sounds so common :roll: . My Mum is Irish, so I got called by both of the Saints names that look after me when I was about to get a clip around the ear.

    Very common in Wales along with Evan Evans, William Williams etc. but then we never did have much imagination :lol:

    yep. the more trouble I was in the more of my name got yelled out of the back door at me.

    same now, the Mrs uses the wife look as a warning shot and then my full name for when I ignore her and carry on regardless.

    I was at school with a lad called Richard Richardson
