I wasn't quit sure what to name this post. But here's what I mean. Have any of children ever recieved a nickname by accident? Either because another sibling couldn't pronounce the new babies name properly, or they just decided they liked a certain nickname better? My 3 yr old can't pronounce his new sisters name, which is Delilah. Instead he calls her "eye yeah". Now it seems a couple people on my hubbies side have taken to calling her that as well. Not sure what I think of that yet. Anyways maybe some of you berries out there have a cute nickname for a child, niece/nephew, friend out there that was accidental! Hope this hasnt been done already, if it has sorry.
Yeah, my brother (who's younger than me) couldn't pronounce my name properly - he said something like "Janana" (don't know how to explain how it's read in English, though). I did liked it (and used it!) for some years, but now I find it ridiculous. Thank god nobody uses it anymore!
Oh yeah. My friends have a ton of nicknames that have nothing to do with their actual names. Morgs' are the best.
Angharad: Morganna, Mo-eggs, Moggs, Moose, Moose Chops, Moose Pie, Hurricane, Angry-had, Angus and... due to an unfortunate MSN typo... Anus.
My sister's boyfriend, Patrick, goes exclusively by Packy thanks to his older sister. It wasn't until he was 22 that anyone in his family realized it was an offensive slur in some parts of the world.
Janana is cute, but I can see how as you got older it's to childish.
Renrose, if spell check changed a friends name to Anus i could definitly see all my friends calling that person Anus from then on lol
Kalebsmom - I choked on my coffee because I was trying to hold back a laugh at the NM packy. That is a very offensive slur where I live lol.
Yeah, lol. Most of her friends are boys so naturally they found that hilarious ;)

I get called Danda because my younger brother couldn't pronounce Amanda. The best one though? My cousin's name is Courtney. This same brother had a hard time pronouncing names, I guess - and he called her "Doo doo!" Weird, right? It was hilarious, though. If we said, "Say Courtney!" He'd say, "Doo doo!" without missing a beat! He called our other brother "Bra bra", even though his name is Austin. Any other boy who wasn't Austin was called "Bree bree". Hahaha.
I was called Yaya by my little sister for years and several family members took to calling me Yaya as well. Also, my sister Elizabeth came to be called Lee which I doubt my parents had in mind, she said Lee-lee instead of Lizzy so she became Lee-lee and later Lee. She is still called Lee today, even by new friends!
My parents never seemed to mind either way if people called us by Yaya or Lee...and of course they called us that ourselves.
My brothers couldn't say Casi when they were little, so somehow I became Cakie. They called me that for probably the first 6-7 years of their lives. Lol. Now that we are grown, they only say Cakie when they want something. My mom would use it, but none of the family really would. Who latched onto it were my friends. They then "Cakied" their name :
Jessie became Jeskie
Destiny became Deskiny
Sarah became Sarkies.
Every now and then we bust it out for memory sake :)
