My Mom was born Barbara Ruth, named after her Aunt Bobbie (Barbara) and Aunt Snippie (Ruth). Apparently most people in the south had nicknames. As it has been confusing growing up discovering the "real" names of relatives. "Babsy" came from the heiress Barbara Hutton who was known to loved ones as Babs. My Mom was called Babsy, and Babs, from the time she was tiny. She is also known as Barbara, Barb, and Barbie.
