Any goofy nicknames in your family?
My brothers, sister, and dad call me "Bunk" (and variations of Bunk). I'm often asked where it comes from, and no one honestly knows. It's possible that it comes from something like "pumpkin" or "bunny," but that's pure speculation.
What about you guys? I'd love to hear your stories.
My husband has an uncle name Lloyd and the call him Colonel. I have no idea why. He also has a distant cousin named Kevin who they call Fuzz. I have no idea where that came from either!
i have a cousin (tracey jr.) that everyone call boogey.
you'd think Amy (my name) would be hard to make a nick name for but when the kids were really little (before Gigi was born) they started calling me Mamy. it started with my oldest sister's kids b/c i would watch them all the time and my nephew would start to call me mom, then catch himself and say "Aunt Amy" (where from the south so it gets pronounced Ant) which gets shortened to sound like they're are saying "A-Amy" add the m from mom and you get "Mamy."
My cousin Rickieana goes by....
I have an extremely random nickname that has developed over the years. It started out with my dad calling me Cece as a baby then when I was little I used to be obsessed with collectling keys, my nickname then changed to Kiki. When I met my partner he started calling me Kenz and ocassionally Kenzi.
So my name is Courtney but I go by Kiki or Kenz.
My names Jordyn so I just get called Jordy or Jordes. My husband is Zachary and he is almost always Zack or Zackie (by his younger sister). However, if people want to get both of our attention then we are always Jack (as in a mixture of Jordyn and Zack). I can't remember how it started but we both answer to it like its a second name. In the 'Thank you' cards that we have from our nieces and nephews, they have written: 'To Auntie and Uncle Jack and Autumn' Haha, it cracks me up!
Oh-the weirdest one is my nephew Cade-my grandma calls him Sally and no one knows why haha
My family calls me "Bug". I really loved ladybugs when I was little, so they started calling me CourtyBug and that eventually was shortened to Bug.
I have a distant relative who is named Susan Elizabeth but goes by "Plookie".
ones i can think of are
my uncle allen. his name is not allen. its robert james. but he was always known as allen.. dont know why.. he has an uncle named allyn. but that is not his own name at all.
i used to call my other uncle boo boo. i dont know why. now we call him Fod. this is because my cousin went to say dad and father at the same time and said Fod. lol. that stuck.
i know some one who called her aunt A-Nut. ive been trying to figure this out and i think its the misspelling of the word aunt. lol
i know a little girl named alexia that called herself sa-sa. thats cute.
and i know an alexandria that goes by nandra because thats how she said it when she was little.
lol. My sister calls me Boo-Boo and Boo-Bear. I have no clue where she got Boo-Boo, but she calls our baby sister "Baby", and then "Baby-Bear", and I told her not to even think about Boo-Bear, and then of course she used it. :/ I actually don't mind, though, haha, I like Boo-Bear more than Boo-Boo. My sister calls our brother Bon-Bon, too (so, all in all, that's Boo-Boo, Bon-Bon, and Baby--yeah.).
My dad calls my mom "his little alien" sometimes, too, since she was born in Roswell, NM. :)
Those are really the only wacky nns I know of, though.
my names Ashley so i have the very common nick names that go with it like Ash and Ashes , when my younger brother was just learning to talk he called me AA lol ..My sons name is Austin but everyone calls him buddha ( when he was born he was 10lbs and looked like a little buddha baby lol ) i call him munchkin too... My younger Brother is Sean hes called Seane (pronounced Shawnee) and I personally call him pooter lol just cuz.. My Husband is Nathaniel but goes by his middle name Corey so his family calls him Corey booger or Corey boo
We have pretty standard nn's on the few people in mine and SO's family that have them... (Deborah nn Debby; Danielle nn Dana; Maddison nn Maddie; Elizabeth nn Liz; Robert nn Bob)
The only odd-ish one I can think of is my Aunt Dede (who never gets called her fullname, Dyanna, in the family) is called Deders by my great-aunts and uncles. They are the same people that call my Aunt Donna, Donna-wonna.
My younger sister, Crea, was called Cheesepuff very regularly until she was 4 yrs old, haha. Looking back, Creampuff might have been better...
