a kirk by any other name
Ah! Now I know how to pronounce Kirkles. For awhile, I was thinking it was pronounced Kirk-less without the last 's'.

Run Logan Run! Shouldn't you have ascended by now?

It's interesting that specifying "a term of endearment" can act as a disambiguification...

It changed the structure of my thinking on the alias. Before, I was thinking you couldn't fit "kirkless" into the space provided then "kirkles" without the 's' just stuck.

But then labeling it a term of endearment caused some confusion, so I had to re-think the angle on the name. Heuristic thinking dumped me into mentally vocalizing it more the way it's spelled (this articulation of my thinking feels awkward).

"Nacho" is from "Ignacio". They say that's how the popular southwestern snack food got its name, from the cook who improvised it.

Oh, that would make some sense... always tough to know if something's a Just-So urban legend, but that seems as likely as anything...
