I think the logic behind it is that Pa = Pa/Dad. And vader = Father.

But I still think it should be accepted also :)

Has anyone tried 'Da'? That's what I call mine but I don't want to risk it or be awkward and report it.

That's probably a bit too uncommon, never heard of it before (in adult usage).

Well, we're talking about a translation of Pa so it's hardly office-speak, anyway. I resent your implication, there, mate :Þ As I say, it would be awkward to report it due to it's lack of currency.

Wat bedreeft TTIP, uprooting is more affective for weeds than trimming :Þ

The thing is you'll see pa/dad often in writing, but I can't recall seeing 'da'. I know it's probably used but I don't see it being used in a book as much as the other alternatives.

It does sound much more like a 'w' than a 'p'...
