nicknames gone wild

our poor baby...our poor poor baby, if she ever had any hope of her learning her name, we've definetly ruined it now!

baby's name is majerle (mar-lee) so a few weeks ago i started calling her "majerls barkley". you know, like charles or gnarls barkley? (fun fact: charles barkley played basketball for the phoenix suns along with dan majerle (which is her 3rd cousin), and the surname is the family name which she is named after...but i digress) so for a good solid amount of time we were calling her "majerls barkley". which ended up changing into "barkles" for short. yes, "barkles" rhymes with "sparkles". now her dad has taken "barkles" one step further by calling her "the barkelator". hes even made up a song, which he sings CONSTANTLY. if any of you wish to isng along, its just like the song "its time for the perculator", just substitute "barkelator" for perculator. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsRkxOtPdwY :laughing9:

anybody else have ridiculous nicknames that you actually call you child???

    All Elliiot's nicknames revolve around her stinky diapers.
    Smelly Ellie. and Stinky Girl.
    And because her last name is McMillin I call her Smelly Ellie McMelly.
    It reminds me of those Dr. Scholl (or whatever, the foot pads) commercials. Gellin' with Ellen McMellon.

    We are the masters of silly nicknames!

    My niece originally had trouble saying Connor--she'd say "Condor." We kind of took that one over. Sometimes we'd build on that by saying "Condor-leeza" (as in Condoleeza Rice)--I have no idea why. It also morphed into "Conzor" and "Conzo". My husband also calls him "C.C.", which are not his actual initials, so I have no idea why on that one either. We both call him "Monkey" a lot, too.

    My best friend started singing "Elise Navidad" when she visited--Elise was just 6 weeks old at the time. She continued on with "I want to wish you a Mary (middle name) Christmas." Not nicknames, but wordplay. Yes, my friend is silly. :happy2:

    I used to say "Are you ready Betty?" when we'd leave for daycare in the mornings. Elise--same meaning as Elisabeth--Betty is a nickname for Elisabeth. I know--that's a stretch!

    My husband's nickname for her is "baby girl."

    I don't really have any nicknames, though.

    I know--we're boring! Now pet nicknames are a far different story! :clown:

    Ty-Ty, T.T. (which are his first and middle initials), Ty-Tot, Doody Booty, Little Monkey, etc.

    At one point, he was answering to Little Monkey. lol

    Kennedy is
    KD (her initials)
    Ken-Ken
    Kidney (this came from her step sister - Sydney who decided she needed to call her a rhyming name). I have inadvertantly called her Kidney when I'm flustered.

    Her father calls her boo, sip-sip (when she was little and attached to my boob), and princess.

    I randomly call out and make up silly names, so my kids get called whatever goofy name I call them at that time.

    Bailey gets:

    Bailey-Boo, Bailey Bear, punkadoodle, punkadoo, sweetie, snooglepie, snickerdoodle, spaghetti-o, monkey, monkey-butt, stinker-face, stinker-dinker, "B", crackerjack, puddin', Pinky Dinky Doo, cookie monster.....

    Bella gets:

    Bella Bunny, Ms Muffin-Pants, stinkerbella, kitten, monkey face, snoogle-muffin, Pooper-Dooper, punkadoo....


    You get the point.

    This is a funny thread. :laughing9:

    I have a girlfriend who has been so good about not using nicknames - and her kids have names that I would easily shorten. They are long names and not once have I ever heard her use a shortened version.

    My daughter has always been Sweet Pea for me, and Princess for my husband.
    When he was very little, I called my oldest Patch.
    My youngest I always called him Bug-a-Boo. He'd curl up like a little bug and sleep (when he wasn't crying).
    Not funny, but cute to me.
