A cousin of mine used to be really obsessed with this name, I think because of the hamster (?) toys. It's not really my thing, but it's not bad.

Imnotputtingmynameonline Says:


I know someone named Greta who has this nickname. Lets just say that particular person has ruined this for me as an always used nickname, but as a pet name its really sweet! Considering it for a Savannah or Susanna nickname. Two of my favorite names, and I love it because I am Czech!

vintageluvs Says:


Cute nickname for Susan and her variants. How could I miss such a wonderful alternative to Sue/Susie? I was fully on board with using Sukey, but now... reconsidering using Zuzu. I'm Czech as well, so that might have something to do with this conversion.
