Letter: Your view - Name games.
WHY are so many people upset when addressed by such terms of endearment as "luv", "me dear" or "me duck"?
In the past I have been called a "limey" in Canada, a"roi neck" in South Africa and a "pom" in Australia.
Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me, especially when spoken in an affectionate manner.
As Shakespeare wrote: "What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet".
