Those close to me call me Kenny. Others call me Ken. But, Kenneth is fine too.

I was named for my father, but was not a junior. My parents liked the name of Kenneth, because of the "handsome" meaning. My family called me KC which was short for Kenneth Carl and because it sounded like Casey, the man who was of baseball lore.
