It's funny how, even in English, people call their fathers by so many names. Alfie called his father Daddy when he was a boy, then switched to Dad as he grew older. I've always called my father Daddy (I remember when we were kids, he told us he doesn't mind what we call him, as long as it isn't Papa, because it reminded him of Papa Piccolino, a popular brand of soup at the time!). My kids also call Alfie Daddy; we'll see whether that changes. (Actually, when 3Po was learning how to speak, he couldn't really say "Daddy", so the best he could do was "Tati". "Tati" eventually became the name for his special bedtime blanket! ) What you do call your father? Whatever you call him, make sure you send him a greeting or a phone call this Father's Day, June 17, to let him know how what a special person he is in your life!
