The Classic Nickname

What nicknames have you ever received or given? Did your dad call you Slugger or Princess? Did your younger sibling mispronounce your name, so you were stuck with your own special tag? Or maybe a coach or a teacher provided you with an amusing moniker. Share your tales here!

  1. Growing up my parents called me Pooh Bear which later changed to just Pooh. My dad still calls me Pooh on occasion. I believe they tried to call me Nanny at one time, but it didn’t stick. I’m thinking that will make a great name when I become a grandmother.

    My real name is Natalie. Many people have a hard time saying and spelling my name. I have been called /Nedlee/ /Natlee/ /Nallee/ etc. Natalie has become more popular now and most people pronounce it correctly, but they still can’t spell it. They always leave out the second a and the ending is different from the /ie/.

    Names don’t fit the phonics rules, so you never know what you are going to get.
