Nicknames – Aloha Friday Follow Fun

Happy Aloha Friday!

From Kailani at An Island Life:
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it easy on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!

Let’s get right to it!  My question for you this week is:

Do you by a nickname, or have you anointed your kids with nicknames?

I wrote about how my parents, siblings, aunts uncles, cousins and anyone who’s known me from birth until 6th grade call me ‘Shelly’, the nickname my parents gave me before birth.  If you missed it, it’s the ‘What’s in a Name‘ post.  Since it’s really hard to come up with a nickname from ‘Stacy’ aside from ‘Stac’, my best friend anointed me with the nickname of ‘Sassy’ (which is why my web design stuff and other user names here and there is ‘SassyDesigns’); my best friend’s nickname is ‘Wild1’.   Which is pretty much self-explanatory.

has the most nicknames – obviously ‘Princess Nagger’ being the one most used, but we also have called her ‘Kaniggly Kanagger’ since birth, along with ‘Nagalicious’ and then there’s ‘Princess Puddlemaker’ when she was in diapers.  Oh, and we do refer to her as ‘DQ’ aka Drama at times, too.  Or just plain old ‘Nagger’.  I know, she’s going to love being referred to by those fun nicknames when she gets older, isn’t she?  At least maybe that will deter any potential future boyfriends named Spike or Snake.  Or not.

How about you?  Do you by a nickname or have given your kids fun and/or unusual nicknames?

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. Well I do not have a nickname never have, My daughter likes to be called Lexy, However I do not call her that. The Only nick name I use is critter for my G-nephew and that is mainly on my Blogs that it is used. He doesn’t like it in person, so we call him by his name.

  2. Good Morning, just blog hoping and found you. Can’t wait to check it out more in depth when the kiddos are in bed tonight. Following u and hope you can do the same for me

  3. In utero we called our oldest Ewok. From time to time we still use that, along with Noodle Nose and Spud. The little guy has gotten the nickname Babes since big brother calls him that.

  4. We do not have any nicknames. Our oldest son is named Cameron and we do sometimes call him “Cam” for short.

    Happy Friday!

  5. I have had several nick names…staring with “weenie” which my sister called me when I was younger…hated it! My friends nicknamed me “Moofus” and that one stuck for a while. My brother in law called me Beez and my neice Beezie, those come from my middle name, which is Bliss.

    These days I’m just know at Mom 😉

  6. I have different nicknames – Deni, Dee, ‘Nise (0nly a select few call me this), Sis….

    My son’s name is Parker and we call him – Parker, P, P-man, P-town

  7. here for aloha friday, ms. sassy!
    i tell new acquaintances to call me ‘Charlotte’ my first name. however, a lot of my old friends call me ‘Charm’ since it’s my sort-of internet name, even though I really don’t want to be called that in person. It’s so hard to break that habit.

  8. Well, I’ve been Kat since Kindergarten. My daddy always called me Katfish which I detested for obvious reasons lol I’ve also been called Katy, Katydid and KitKat. Those weren’t so bad 🙂 My daughter Christina has always been called T (and Tina Marie by her great grandmother) and Melanie has always been Mel or MelMel. We call our granddaughter Bratykins because she’s a brat but in a good way 😀

  9. PB and I have longish names, so we always go by our nicknames. We really do call little o “little o”, though. LG usually gets called “Bear” at home. I’m not completely sure why. We used to call him Chomps McGee when he was really little. Again, not sure why.

  10. I was given the nickname “Kimert” when I married my hubby. It was given by coworkers. It’s my first and last name combine…with a few missing letters. LOL My son was nicknamed “Peanut” when I was about 9-11 wks pg with him and I brought home an ultrasound picture and my daughter (2.5 at the time) said it looked like a peanut, not a baby. So he was baby peanut until he was about 2 and the name Peanut has struck. he is now 4 and when asked his name he will say, “Peanut.” Poor child.

  11. My nickname was George but only until my dad died. After that I didn’t have a nickname. It was sort of his name for me that no one wanted to use after he was gone. Our oldest son’s nickname was Bucky. At 27 he doesn’t like to be called that any more. So sometimes I do. I like to mess with his head sometimes.

  12. Every minute someone comes up with a different nickname…we are that kind of family. Maybe it’s because I cannot remember the name of the child I am speaking to and have to run through all of their sisters names to get to theirs.

  13. Growing up I was “Susie.” In school & my family. My sisters still call me that sometimes.

    People call me Sue. And my husband has always beenone of the few people to just call me Susan.

  14. Hi I am Nicole from I found you on a blog hop and wanted to drop by and say hi. I really like your blog, and am now a new follower. I would love to have you stop by Colie’s Kitchen if you get a chance.

  15. Well, DUH! My nickname is Dolly, and my dad gave it to me when he thought I was part of the toys in the nursery when I was born. The nicknames for my kids are Tricialita, Cuddles, Chubley, and Missy! Have a great weekend.

  16. Sprite has been Sprite since before she could really talk, when that glint in her eyes clued me in to the mischievous years I would be in for.
    I have been Rosie since my teen years to some friends due to the amount of Jennifers.

  17. I have bee ‘Creepy’ for 20 years. Long. Story.

    We called my son ‘Butt Cheeks’ for a while. And my daughter is usually ‘Boo Boo’

  18. I have always been called nicknames. My children were given names that would not be altered, so they are called their given names. Or maybe they are called funny things or endearing things by those close to them.

  19. Most children are called by their nick names. Sure they love being called so rather than by their names. I am not sure if there is a difference in nick name and pet name.

  20. 40 is definitely the new 20!!

    I give everyone nicknames…most of the time, multiple nicknames. Not sure where it comes from, but I ain’t changing! :o)

  21. Very interesting and thanks for sharing. My name is Deborah but I go by Debby. My dad always calls me peanut but no one else does that. We don’t have nicknames for our children.

  22. Some nicknames are fun and some are just cruel.

    I sometimes refer to my kids with all kinds of loving names and one I can remember is bubby 🙂 I have no idea why .

    my nickname is Col or Callie.

    Otherwise, no grand nicknames going on here at all.

  23. At this particular time in my life I have the best nickname…Nana.
    I never has a nickname growing up and never has any kids of my own, so I adore being called something other than my name.
