Nicknames are funny right?
Kristi got me to thinking about them yesterday…
The other day we were at the grocery store and Hannah was running around like a wild maniac and I yelled “Nanner! Get back here!”
This lady looked at me and said “Nanner? That’s an interesting name.”
So, I had to tell her that Nanner was just the nickname, but the poor girl, we never call her Hannah, she probably doesn’t even know her real name!
I don’t really know how we came up with Nanner…we’ve just always called her that from the time she was born. I think in the beginning she was actually Hanner Nanner, then we shortened it later to Nanner. Sometimes we even spice it up and call her Nanner Nino or Nanner Nunu.
Katie’s is pretty common…Katie Bug or sometimes just Bug. I think all of the Katie’s out there probably get called Katie Bug.
Julie is Ju Ju or Aunt Ju. But I like to call her JuBacca, as we both have a love for Star Wars. Her friends call her Jules. I think Mamaw & Papaw actually called her Julie Bug or just Bug on occasion. Lots of bugs out there.
Tana. She got the ol’ Tana Banana nickname. Not to be confused with Anna Banana. And rumor has it that her husband calls her Princess, but I just can’t really wrap my brain around that one at this time. I mean princesses are all sweety sweet and nicey nice, right? Sister, I love ya and all but you are SO not that! Ice Princess. Now that I can see! Wink! You know I love you!
Me. I’ve had quite a few. My dad always calls me (and Tana) Bub. Which turned into Bubber, Bubbinator and Bubbalubbashama, every now and then. But he used to call me Amos and Face. Face always cracked me up. I think I shall tell him that he needs to switch it up and throw Face in there every once in a while for a little variety. Me & my friend Misty call each other Lillian. My best friend and I call each other Moo and have for 16 years. It’s a long story that you probably wouldn’t find the least bit interesting. But we are Moo to each other and sometimes even Moo Mesa if one or the other is being scolded. Her dad, he was so awesome – I miss him ALOT – always called me Sugar or Shoogie or Shoog.
Brian is Nancy, of course, but he is also known as BT or Hound Dog. That Hound Dog thing was before my time, so I usually stick with “Honey” or “Nancy”.
My niece, Maryka, is Maryka Ronnie Roo.
Oh and here’s a cute one. My mom and dad were known as Mouse and Mrs. Mouse in high school! Love that!
I love nicknames. All of my pets get nicknames. I once had a dog named Sparky. We called him Sparkarelly and Sparky Delgado and Spartikus Maximus. Then there was our dog, Big Papa, who we called Big Booba Chooba or Big Papa Pump. Willie Nelson is Will or William sometimes and sometimes he is Willie Bob Thornton or Willie Mo Pena.
And Buster, he’s Bust, Bub, Bustarelly, Busta Rhymes, and Buster Douglas.
So, now I’m curious, what’s your all’s nicknames?
