So I was whining (as I am wont to do all too often). I explained to Rudy that I wished my parents had named me something from which one could derive a nickname. Samanthas can be Sam. Nicoles can be Nick. Rudy pointed out that the name "Les" can be derived from my name. And, he pointed out, "Les is more." AND it has fewer letters than "clst" and so wins for being a TLA (sorta) too. So, feel free to call me Les. (Or Loretta.)
Maybe, if I had been born male, I would sit around wondering about how I'm really not sporty and I detest competition and I make "eep"ing noises on occasion and I would think perhaps some odd mistake had been made.
