    Is Tru a nickname? I've wondered if her given name was Truman, since her brother is named Harrison (I thought maybe her mother liked Presidents' names), or even if her name was the very un-trendy Gertrude? Or is this a fan fiction question?

    I really don't see anyone naming their daughter Truman unless they really wanted that kid to get their ass kicked.

    I've just always assumed it was short for "TRUDY".

    Graciemag,
    Trudy is a nickname for Gertrude, so I guess you and I were thinking the same thing when discussing her name.

    It is an interesting and unique name, one I've never heard of before this show.

    If I ever ended up having a daughter I'd consider that name among the possibilities because it is so unique and interesting.

    I don't think it has to be a nickname. Luc is a three-letter name too, sure it could be short for "Lucas" or something, but some people may just have short names.

    I never thought of that. Sounds like Gertrude is the most likely suspect. Though I don't recall any name given in the show. I think it's for us fans to figure out! Good Guess!
