Smile Childhood Nicknames

Hi Everyone!
I was just curious to see if anyone had a really funny or interesting nickname while growing up. I guess I'll start it off, but mine isn't very interesting. My best friend in elementary school was named Erica, and my name is Erin. We were always together, so people just started calling us both "Er" heads (pronounced airheads). They never said it to be mean, so it was just kinda funny. I hope everyone else has better ones than mine!

Erin

for one reason or another, my parents & their friends though I was a lil too "grown" for my own good when I was little (7). Maybe it was because the next youngest of my parent's friends' children was 15, maybe it was because I was an only child, maybe becasue I was the bomb like that I don't know. ANYWHO, they started calling me "Ms. Kelli" and to this day, they STILL call me that. I kinda like it. It fits

Luckily I'm not easily embarassed

First, when I was little my mother used to call me her little Love Bug. I don't know why, but she did. Funny thing is, my sophomore year of college she came back from Saint Louis with a t-shirt that showed a volkswagon beetle (car). It was red with hearts and it looked like a lady bug (MY FAVORITE). Under it it said LOVE BUG! How cute huh?!?!

The second one isn't really a nick name, but something my Grandma calls me.
My full name is Amy Michelle. Well when I was little I had a hard time talking and so I used to walk around telling everyone my name was Amy Myshelf. My Grandma got a kick out of it and still calls me Amy Myshelf to this day! LOL. Gotta love Grandmas!

well when i was really little, and by this i mean maybe like 2, people would ask me my name. I dont know if it was that i couldnt pronounce it or what, but i would say "me....me". Everyone would just laugh and say that it was cute, but later on, it just caught on to "mimi". The only people that call me that are my parents. My brother doesnt even call me that since he is younger and wasnt there when it was all new and fun.

I think its kind of funny because i know people that call their grandmothers "mimi", so everytime i hear that in public i have to refrain myself from turning around because i know it cant possibly be me they are calling.

My middle name is Rebecca and my parents ALWAYS called me Becca or Becky. My mom still calls me Becca to this day. She rarely calls me by my real name.
My older brother called me Boodge. Don't ask me why or where it came from. I have NO clue. It was a really annoying nickname, but I guess it's better than the 'butthead' nickname he's come up with for me in my later years .

Before I was born, my father's cousin would always ask my mother, "How's little Honey doing"? So to this day (I'm 27) people still call me Honey. For some strange reason I still prefer my family to call me that than my real name ( DaVanda).

Alright, I have to share some of my almost insane nicknames here. My real name is Melinda and I go by Mindy. That will help with some of them. My Mom used to call me Little Miss Muffett. My Dad, who is very silly sometimes, called me various things such as jellybean and rabbit head. I know he had more, but I can't think of them now. My cousin, who is more like a brother used to call me skinny b/c I was like a little skeleton until almost my senior year of high school. He then moved on to calling me Scrunt, why? I don't know. My Aunt and Godmother calls me Mincoda. Codachrome, Coda and any other variation she can come up with on this. Some of my other uncles call me Minolta and Minerva. Those are just my family. I can't even remember all the stupid names that were made up for me in high school by my friends. We used to do that kind of stuff all the time. Whenever you would do or say something stupid or funny, you could be sure you were getting a nickname to make you remember it for a while. It was all in good fun, though.

Talking

I am the queen of nicknames...for other people that is!! My only nickname from my father is "Kiddo" which I have always and forever been called by him. I would probably fall over if he ever called me my real name. (Which by the way he MISSPELLED in the family Bible...haahaahaa -- that is a funny story too!)

Anyway, my nieces are Emma, Katie, and Aly -- but I call them Angel, Lil'bear, and Alyphant. When I sometimes do say "Emma" she gets all huffy and says "NO! I'm your an"shell" -- she can't say her "g's" yet.

My brother has been RB for the longest time (which, as I explained in another thread, stands for Rat Ba$t@rd).

My best friend had the funniest nickname in school - she was a cheerleader and they called her "Boom Boom" - now since you guys can't see her, she has rather large breasts on a very petite body. So we're out with these guys one night having a good time, and we're talking about stupid stuff, and the whole Boom Boom thing comes up.....Steve actually says "well is that because you have large breasts?" --- my girlfriend and I just looked at each other (you know we have ESP) and then she starts acting TOTALLY offended -- she said "WHAT? NO - what kind of disgusting question was that?" and I had to play along. That poor boy was so red-faced! Of course this is also the guy who told us that Cinco de Mayo was on the 6th this year, and that the lady working at the Mexican restaurant we were in was Spanish because "Spanish people and Mexican people are really the same thing." HAAHAAHAA - we were hysterical with laughter all night long! And he wasn't even drunk!!

As Ace Ventura says "Lo-hoo-se-er"

I don't even know where my nicknames came from. My full name is Alexandria - pretentious, huh? Yea, I go by Allie. For a while it was Ali, but people pronounced it as in "Muhammed" Ali, so I changed the spelling. My mom calls me Squirrel. I don't know why or how that came about. She says it is because I'm "squirrely," but you never know with her. Somehow Squirrel evolved into Tree Rat. Tree Rat?? I know, not the cutest, but I can almost guarentee that I am the only person called that lovingly.

My brother is nicknamed Boo Boo. That is because I would alway whine about having a boo boo whenever I hurt myself. BTW, I still do that now - I love pity in my agony! Anyway, everytime I said that, Matthew would giggle and repeat it over and over again, like some broken doll. It was hilarious. It got to the point where we just called him that. "Come here Boo Boo!"

Allie

When I was little I was a plump baby and my great-grandmother started calling me yellow butter-ball. I still hear this nick name from time to time.

My parents have called me Kevin or Kev since I was little. This seventh grade girl once called me "Smiley" once. Ever since I was a kid my younger brother has had these pet names for everyone in the family *L* He calls me cudre(some kind of nonsense word I guess), my mom muter, and my dad I forget. Were talkin a 26 yr old systems analyst that uses these names. *L* When I was an active my brothers called me cha-cha, king helmut, and sometimes I was referred to as "Tonka". Thats what the AXPs called me.

Kevin
