At the behest of my wife, since I've begun cross-posting (most of) my LiveJournal entries to Facebook, Google+, and sometimes Twitter, I'm going to no longer use the given names of my family members. I do have nicknames for them, so you'll start seeing me refer either to "my first-grader" or to "Piglet", "my teenager" or "Squirtle", and "my wife" or "Stella" (from her derby name "Stella Example"). Those of you who already know their names can adapt, I'm sure.
NOTE TO GOOGLE: These are pseudonyms for other people, not myself! Back off! And it's sad that I feel the need to emphasize that.
