Im just curious to know what parents. aunts, uncles grandparents etc have for nicknames for there little ones. Why did you chose that nickname? I have a few older realtives that call me KAKA as well as my nieces and nephew. They all call me auntie KAKA. Reason was when i was born my sister 15 months at the time of my birth tried to pronunce jessica but couldnt and "kaka" came out instead. My olders sister we call smelly shelly, not only is it catchy but it fits her perfectly she likes to fart alot and mostly on other people.. LOL My son 5 1/2 months old we call Lance sir crank alot.. LOL i know i know... but his name is lance and it really seems as if he does nothing but cry. His twin sister penelope we call pixie because she has one ear that is still formed with a point and looks like a fairy... soooo cute. what about you.. im very interested. thanks.

When I was young, my sister calls me badong and erky the lurky. I really dont have any idea why she calls me that. She was the one who started calling me erk short for erica. Now everybody else calls me erk. My mom used to call me ikay. My close friends calls me ekay. My brother was nicknamed buyay when he was a baby. My mom thought of that. Can't remember why.

My son's name is Elliott. We call him Elly-oatie Coyote a lot. My little sister started calling him that for some reason, and it just kind of stuck. We also call him A-yett sometimes because that is how he pronounces his own name. The only other nickname he has is Bubba Boo, which he's had pretty much since he was born.

Well, giving funny nicknames to kids is a very common thing in all cultures... i remember calling my first niece "Kekek"... because that was how she first pronounced her name... so it just stuck... then my second niece we called... "Tabachingching".... well that is a word for fat or chubby... since she was quite big when she was still very young... she lost all the weight... but we still call her that nickname... Now my daughter is not that fat... and she is able to pronounce her name properly... but i call her "Pooh Bear"... since she poo like three time a day...

My daughter, Amanda, was nicknamed Deeda when my oldest grandson was little and wasn't able to say her name correctly. It stuck and many of us still call her Deeda.
