Whenever I'm introduced to someone new, they
always ask me if I prefer to be called Jonathan or
Jon. I tell them to use which ever one they like.
I've come to notice that my most intimate friends
begin calling me by Jonathan after having called
me Jon for an amount of time. It's also one of
those names that, when pronounced, exposes the
inflections in the speakers voice - meaning it's
easy to detect subliminal attitudes if someone's
talking to me and repeats my name.

John is NOT a diminutive form of Jonathan, nor is Jon. Jon is not a real name. That drives me crazy!
