Hi Burf......that's sweet!

Mine is not so 'cute'.   My brothers and all my family know me as "Smokey", a name he (who is 2 years older) stuck me with as an infant, when someone gave me a Smokey the Bear stuffed animal (we still have the bear).

My dad always called me "Ted", a version of "Ted-E-Bear" and my ex partner always called me "Poochie".    So I'll answer to pretty much anything....

Growing up my extended family, (maternal side), called me "Dent," which was an abbreviation of my last name.  My immediate family, (well my sister and sometimes my mom), called me "Duff" which was an abbreviation of "Dufferdos," a silly name my sister gave me when she was learning how to talk.

When i was little my grandpa called me "wompus". I never knew what a wompas was until i was married with kids.
A man i worked with said it was a wildcat. That there is an old song called the "The Wompas Kitty".

What I wouldn't give to hear him call me that one more time.

My Grandmother called me "Ginty"... I have no idea why, and that's the only name she called me from the day I was born until the day she died.

My Dad called me "Buds"...now, you can ply me with drinks, you can feed me boxes of chocolates, but I will never tell you why....but that doesn't mean you can't try... ;)

My grandmother calls me a number of names in yiddish I couldn't pronounce nor spell to you if I wanted to.

I'm not even sure I want to know what she means half the time. xD

I think Matty is on a mission to get everybody in the world to call me Squeak.

My teachers always like to call me Jay for some reason. Which I despise. Never call me that. xD.

My friends and the people at the veterinary clinic have started calling me variations of Mousey, Mousey Boy, Mouse Boy. xD. Depending on how *CUTESY* they feel at the moment. Haha. To the people at the front desk of my vet I am 'that kid with the mouse'. Referring to Morgan and I.

"Linda, that kid with the mouse is back!"
"Awww, hi! How's Morgan?"
*gushgushgush*

:P

(In retrospect, it just occured to me that they always remember the mouse's name and not mine. LMAO.)

I never really had a nickname growing up. 

These days, I have a few nicknames, Patsy & Angel.

Patsy from AbFab and Angel because I always am there to help people out. 

Lately, the bar that I go to, they started called in SRB (Sneaky Rat Bastard) because of my ability to find information on people, pick locks and produce any peice of software someone needs and can not afford.

"Kreedi," to all my friends from school (way too complicated an etymology to get into); "baba," or little boy, to my mother (I'm 33); and "pooch" (also) to an ex-boyfriend. Jay

Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

I've never had a nickname. With a first like Ford people just go for the car jokes.

I knew a little guy growing up nicknamed Peanut. Everyone, even teachers, called him Peanut. I don't think I ever knew his real name.

Nicknames are great. Enjoying reading the ones people have mentioned and how the got them and in many cases don't even know how they happened. (I do have an idea about how Jan got hers but I'll leave that guess for a conversation in Montreal.) It's fun how they come about. With some whom I am close to I will add "o" or "bo" to their names like Jaybo or my sons, Benjo and Abeo.

When he was about 9,  just before we went to France for the first time together, my younger son announced he wanted a nickname. With typical older brother impatience Ben, with lipcurling contempt observed, "Abe, you don't just make up a nickname." Abe persisted as was his style in general so we discussed possible nicknames. After going through a list of candidates I said since we were going to France and he liked French fries, how about "frite," so for a time he became "frite" and "mon frite." Which he enjoyed seeing listed on menus after that.

My mom used to call me "Andelah," which is kind of like a Jewish version of adding "o" or "bo." That "elah" will work if you take it on to almost any name."

Now the boys call me anything from Paw to FATHER! to plain old "Dad," but when they were little sometimes it was "Bu" or "Suz Bu." No idea where those came from. An ex used to call me Pookoh and NMN, the latter because she was amused that when filling out forms that asked for middle name she noticed that I would write "NMN," which stands for no middle name.

Nicknames are a good thing!

My Grandma always used to say to me "What a dewey"...I think it was when I did something silly or whatever.  It stuck and they started just calling me Dewey.  I even used it as a nickname when I was a camp counselor in high school.  Of course, I used to get the "Where's Huey and Louie" comments, but had NOTHING to do with Disney ducks.  As I got older, often it was just shortened to Dew.   :D

I never really had any nick names when I was growing up - unless of course you count the phrase that so often fell from my big sister's lips - "why, you little brat!" :D

My partner calls me Duck - because of the way I tend to waddle when my hips are sore. It's my own fault, because on bad days I used to say that I felt like a duck. It's quackers.

One of my skippers back in my fishing days used to alternate between The Onion - because I always wore so many layers of clothes and stripped them off as the day got warmer, and Fag Ash Lil - because of my habit of having a ciggy hanging out of my mouth when I was working on deck.

People around the town I live in know me as DebitheYank - yes, all run together like that - and yes, my first name is Debi but I prefer my middle name Ann.

Call me any of the above (other than Ann) and suffer the consequences.  :o

I found two more nicknames that I had...

We had a lightening strike the other day that fried my computer.  I went and bought a new one of the weekend and have been going through DVD & CD backups of old pictures and documents that I wanted to copy over to the new computer. 

In doing this, I found some letters that reminded me of two others:

Miss Daisy
Farris (Beuler)

Miss Daisy, because I would always make Julie drive to our bowling league because I always tended to have way to much to drink.   ;D

Farris... My friend Amy runs a very active blog for transsexuals and she started describing what I looked like to her users as a "Farris Beuler" type guy.  So Farris was another bowling team name for me.  :)

My nephews who are 3 and 4 cant say my name, which is Dawn.... I am known as Aunt Dong! So that has become a pretty popular name for me these days. I looked up the meaning because my brother and sis in law get a kick out of it (these are their kids that gave me the name) The meanings are currency or in slang its a penis. Hmmmmmmm....... :o

I have a couple of nicknames, it depends on who knows me and from what time in my life.  I generally answer to anything..

Chewy - because a danish friend when I was young would always call me Mattchew.  Everyone started calling me chewy from then on and most people still do today.

Rug - a couple of work colleagues from my late teens would call me Rug, it's another word for Mat...

Benji - close friends call me Benji, it's my middle name.

Spunkytrunks - that's what my ex calls me.. and strangely still does.

Oi Bitch Nurse - from an episode of Abfab.  My nurse friends I went to uni with call me Oi Bitch Nurse.  I'm not really a bitch, but I am a Nurse.

Finally...

Cubby or Osito - my bestest buddy I haven't even met yet, calls me Cubby or Osito.  wish we didn't live so damned far away!

My nickname for many years was "Pork". Given to me by my brother on account of my having been fat as a kid. Now, both of us in our early forties, I'm not fat and he has ballooned to Jabba The Hut-like proportions. He still called me Pork though, up until this last Christmas. We were seated at the table for Christmas dinner, and after listening to more crap than I could stand, I started staring at him until he noticed, and asked what I was staring at. I questioned why he still called me by that name when he is the one with enough extra chins that they resemble a pelicans pouch. Then Mom got into the spirit, and asked him how many fish he could fit in there. He now uses my given name. Mostly.  Capt. Carl...

As a young girl my dad dubbed me Tish... and sometimes my brothers called me Sissy (I hated that one.)

In school the kids called me either Tish (thanks Dad) or Wonderwoman (we all had a superhero name.)

Some people called me Patty or Patsy (my godfather and uncles used this one alot) and I despised both of these names.  I made it clear to not call me either, but all the kids knowing I hated it, used it anyway.  Damn Kids...

The best one of all was given to me by my brother Jim and his wife Jen, and which they easily got my 4 year old nephew James to call me -- "Aunt Trish Potty Mouth"  -- I wonder why in the world they would call me that? lol ::) :D ;)

Roodles- that's Matty's tag on me.

Oh hell I forgot about "HotRod", that nick had different meanings depending on WHO called me that.  :D

When my sister was little (she's 35 now), she couldn't say 'brother', so she called me Brub.  Somewhere along the way, my mom picked that up too.  To this day, they both still call me Brub.  My partner and I often call each other 'Boo' (short for BooBoo) or Dookie, which is from a Budweiser commercial.

"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful nor conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, adaptation in A Walk To Remember

Let's see..........

A name that I hated ( a teacher even thought the name was funny and said the name when I asked her what we were having for lunch)......Corwyn Bread and Beans (really ghetto)

Some people in the neighborhood (I own my grandparents' residence) called me Clowan (instead of Corwyn)

Some relatives call me Cowan.....

Relatives on my grandfathers side call me....CowanEarl (altogether.....and very quickly.....we are now learning EBONICS) instead of Corwyn Earl

When I call all these people, I have to make sure I say the right "name" or they will say "huh.....who is this?"

Family......what are you going to do?


I would think that my mom and dad would have corrected these linguistic errors on the spot.....oh well.........

Nowadays I get Little Steve as so many of my friends are also Steve - big Steve, lil Steve, weaver, and steve.

As a kid, I had squirt ('cause i'm little), squint (cause I have squinty eyes), smiley and picollo stronzo (which is 'little shit' in Italian), and nappies or napkins (due to some kid in school not being able to say my surname, Atkins, correctly).

Oh, and there is one my family calls me, but that's between them and I.  ::)

Lil Steve

Well, it seems I have a new one to add.  Since someone in another thread asked me if I WAS Lance Bass,

one of our dear forum family members and now friend to me has decided to call me LANCE on a regular basis.

WTF???!!!  hehe

The wife of one of my dad's friends in AA called me
"Jenoffel" which is a dialect flemish word for Carnation.
I was 10.

My kid sister calls me "Talulah".

My buddy here calls me Peg and I call him Wanda Jean.

And my staff gave me a b'day cake with Winnie the Pooh, that's how I found out what they call me.
