 Notes of interest N. Faye Briscoe never liked her real first name. She went to great links to keep it hidden from people. All of us grandchildren were never allowed to call her anything but grandmother or grandma. We didn't dare call her nanna or any other of those cute nicknames grandchildren call their grandmothers. It wasn't till after she died that I learned her real first name was Nannie. Infact I don't think my great grandmother was to happy with her first name Nannie either. She was only called Little Grandma, Aunt Bea, or Bea.
