Do you have a nickname? What is the strangest or funniest nickname you have heard. When I was in school, it was a boy in my room that was called Pork Chop. I have a cousin I nicknamed Shoney, I started calling her Shoney after a commercial I saw on TV and the name stuck, she is grown now and loves her nickname. My neighbor's nickname is Suga Bear and everone calls him Suga Bear, some breaks it down to Bear. I have an uncle we call Uncle Baby Bro. He was the baby of his siblings. Share your nicknames with me I would love to hear some of them.

[i]I have no nicknames but I remember when we were young, we always tease our classmates with funny names! I even had one whom I called "vicks" until this time..I forgot the root or history of it actually but i remember we will be laughing hard those time![/i]

my girlfriend calls me 'pembisim' which in turkish mean 'my pink guy' - its her way of annoying me because she teases me about wearing pink sometimes, or 'kucuk askim' because im younger then her. other ones ive heard is hunny bunny which has become very cliche with girls i think. and sugar buns. none of which were said to me.

When I was very little, my older brother dubbed my dee-dee budgio. The Dee Dee stuck for quite some time. I think my cousins still refer to me in that name. I never knew where he got the name.

Hi Chevee, Is this your nickname? Is it Chevee as in car? Or as in Cheveeee? Anyway, My husbands name is Dennis and his family always call him Dinny. My name is Eileen and I've kind of latched onto Leenie from my best friend. I tend to cut peoples name short, like if we become friends and I answer your posts, I might say Hi Chev. That's just me. leenie

I enjoy the story of nicknames. I don't really have one as my name is so short. My dad used to have nicknames for all of us kids, and he called me Slim! But that wasn't something anyone else called me or stuck with me.

My nickname is japong but I changed it to JP to make it more simple and a lot fuzzier. I have friends whose nicknames are funny as well. One is called Big Bird because he has a big "BIRD", well, that's what most people say. One's called Eklok. One's LongLong.

When I was just young, I was nicknamed Duck by my favorite older brother-in-law and since my name is Donna, occasionally my mom called me Donna Duck.. But just this last week, my young niece brought her children for a visit and when she was trying to teach her youngest little boy what our names were, he called me Unkadonna, he just couldn't catch on to Uncle Jim and Aunt Donna, so I got both of them all rolled into one, I thought it was so cute that when his mom tried to correct him, I told her to leave him alone, let him call me that.. His mom called yesterday when her car wouldn't start while she was at the dentist's office with him and we went to help her.. She had him, Christopher, in his stroller under a tree keeping cool until we got there and the first thing that he said was "push me Unkadonna", so needless to say he got a pretty fast ride around the parking lot in his stroller.. He loved it and I like the new nickname.. I am interested in seeing what he is going to call my husband now since I am uncle and Donna rolled into one..

Hi Chevee, In my first job and when I was single my boss used to call me mine copperress, because my surname was Cooper and I'm quite small and the minis were quite popular then so that was why he called mini cooperess and now my husband calls me rabbit because of my funny looking front tooth.

One of my old friends (I haven't seen him in about 20 years) was called "Puppy Chow" or just "Chow" 'cause he used to nibble on dried dog food (he said it was good stuff!) My nick is "Ozone" 'cause I used to spend all my time floating in the ozone layer back in my doper days.

Saundy is one of my nicknames. I have a bunch of friends from IRC who to me as Swtkitten or even kitten because thats all they know me by. Nonny/Nonni is something my mom calls me...i'd told that started because it was how i said my name when i was little because i couldnt say it (its Cassaundra) My sisters also call me Deedee. Theres others but thats all i can currently think of.

This girl that my husband knew back in high school had an aweful REAL name. It was Ima Pigg. Shame on her parents for not thinking before naming her. I'm sure that poor girl suffered through school and probably was a loner. Might have not graduated. I definitly would have requested a name change as soon as I was old enough to know what my name was!.

my brothers and parents called my eddy, short for edwards, a nickname that my brothers started when i was little. i dont even know how they got it. it just happened and got stuck for a long time, until high school. but it was just a family nickname. friends never called me that nickname. and i didnt share it with others i meet out of family. just a kid thing.

Every where in the world every body on the earth I think has some of the nick name by which he/she called in the society. there are so many nick names in our society i.e. if some body is of white complexion he is called Gora and with the blackish colour is called kala etc.
