836. Welsh Idiosyncrasies - Nickname Series (94)

My father-in-law is always reminding my wife - who hails from Rhydfelin, Pontypridd - of the local resident who one day decided he'd had enough of being referred in the traditional way as 'Dai'.  His retort was that he was born 'David' and that's how people should refer to him.  Thereafter, he was known locally as Dai-call-me-David.
