"Yisch." That seems to be Jeremy's name for Harry. Where it came from is very hard to say. When he says "Yisch," with a long "I" sound, it doesn't sound anything like "Harry," but it's pretty clear that Harry is who he is talking to or about. It's really a guess, by I think I have actually heard Jeremy try to say "Harry" and it coming out like "Hi-yisch." If so, "Yisch" is a kind of natural nick name, I suppose, although I wouldn't be sure if it were that or whether Jeremy thought "Hi-yisch" was really "Hi, yisch."
