I'm thinking of a name...

I'm seen in the middle - though I finish later
Split and I could be an agreement from a Vater
I'm 5/12 in a calendar
Split again and I'm a different nickname with a preposition

What is the name?

HINT:

The 5/12 isn't a date

    $\begingroup$ NOTE: OP's profile lists home country as England. So if you're translating 5/12 as a date, it's Dec. 5, not May 12. $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Apr 15 '16 at 18:00

    $\begingroup$ @ChrisCudmore don't worry - that clue isn't a date. (BIG HINT) $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 15 '16 at 18:01

  • $\begingroup$ @feelinferrety well it was close enough $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 15 '16 at 18:42

The answer is

JASON

I'm seen in the middle - though I finish later

In calendar, month July to November spell JASON. So starts in the middle of the year, but finishes 5 months later.

Split and I could be an agreement from a Vater

JA is yes in German, and SON

5/12 in Calendar

jfmamj-JASON-d - the first letters of the 12 months have jason in it

different nickname with a preposition

JAS nickname for James and the preposition in ON

  • $\begingroup$ Last clue could be SON? $\endgroup$ – LiamH Apr 15 '16 at 18:21
  • $\begingroup$ I think JAS (Jayce) is a BRO-ish nickname for Jason. $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Apr 15 '16 at 18:24

    $\begingroup$ Umm. N is still autumn. Your original wording was correct. $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Apr 15 '16 at 18:29

    $\begingroup$ Something wrong here. While I agree that the answer is correct, July is summer, and November is still Autumn. Even if we go Southern Hemisphere, then the start is winter and the end is spring. $\endgroup$ – Chris Cudmore Apr 15 '16 at 18:44

I think the answer is:

May?

I'm seen in Autumn - though I finish later

May

Split and I could be an agreement from a Vater

Ay

I'm 5/12 in a calendar

May

Split again and I'm a different name with a preposition

Ma

Partial answer:

St Nicholas

I'm seen in Autumn - though I finish later

St. Nicholas eve is Dec. 5, still autumn, but he finishes up on Dec. 24th.

Split and I could be an agreement from a Vater

All I'm getting is the German reference.

I'm 5/12 in a calendar

St. Nicholas eve.

Split again and I'm a different nickname with a preposition

No clue. Lets play around with different names of Santa.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope sorry, not quite $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Apr 15 '16 at 17:59
