916. Welsh Idiosyncrasies - Nickname Series (102)

My grandmother Margaret A'Herne (née Evans), a Markham girl born and bred, was at one time a post woman (delivering letters) and has for evermore been called Magg-the-Post.

A gentleman, Aeron, who lived in the same street as my family, had a 50cc motorcycle and was known as Aeron-Put-Put due to the noise of his bike.

Yet another gentleman was known as Dai-Over-The-Wall due to having a prompensity for nosiness, looking over other people's back walls.

Darren Williams, Markham
