How does Margaret become Peggy? How does James become Jack? How does Richard become Dick? (Rick is less of a stretch, but DICK?)

Anyway, we were sort of idly discussing this in the water today, cooling off on a hot day, and my dad announced, "Well, I'd understand Peggy if the name were Pegaret, but Margaret makes no sense."

I've shortened it to Pegret as a name to use for my niece on this blog. I will have to think of something for the nephew...
