My last post got me thinking, do you use NNs and if so what are they?

Seth is Seffers or Sefferdoodles, which he doesn't like...
Tarin is Tar-Tar, or when he is being his usual self, Tarin the Terror!

We don't really nickname Jordana. Some people call her Jordi, which I don't object to, but we don't use it. For a while we called her Na-Na (rhymes with Mama) because that's what she called herself. But as far as her name, we say the whole thing, Jordana.

Jacoby gets called Coby a lot.

No kids, so I'll do my cats

Penny gets called Penners or Nenners most of the time.
Pinky is called Pinkers or Pinks
and Mae (which is a nickname as her full name is Maiden) just gets called Mae or Mae-baby.

I don't call my husband nicknames at all and despise when others do it.

Seamus doesn't have a nickname. We had planned to call him Shay for short, but it just didn't seem to fit. So he's just Seamus. My dad once called him Jimmy though. Which I didn't mind (Seamus is the Irish form of James... hence the Jimmy reference).

Rhiannon's nickname is Rain. We call her both Rhiannon and Rain all the time. Sometimes I playfully call her Rainbow.

We call our daughter Ella 99% of the time. One of the big reasons we named her Gabriella is because we loved all the nickname options but I got lucky and my favorite nickname was the one that stuck.

We call Alexandra "Alex" about 90% of the time. It just suits her so much better than Allie, Lexie, or any other NN we could think of derived from her name. She's a little bruiser!

We want our girls to have long names with NN potential. Hence... Rory for Aurora if this baby in my belly is a girl.

We like shorter names for boys. Connor, Logan, Colin, etc. So not much nickname potential there.

My son is Ryan Matthew and I called him Sunshiney-Ry and Ry-Ry a lot when he was little. My daughter Ashley Nicole was called Ash, Ashley-bug and occasionally "Nicolai" for her middle name.

Our new baby boy will be Keegan and we sometimes call him Keegers, Keegi-kins and daddy plays with my belly and calls him Keeger-Meister once in a while

Levi gets called Levi for the most part. His grandpa calls him "Little Papa-wapa" and if he's being ornery then he's "wombat" or "boy-destroy" or "monkey". I don't expect any of those to stick with him.

From the time I found out I was preggo, I called the babe (at the time didn't know the sex) the Kernel. He still gets called the 'Kern' by a lot of people as well as, Silly Goose, Gooser, Punkin' Butt and most recently, Tank/Tanker ;-) None that have anything to do with his name.

Makenna is Missy-Moo, Kenna, and Ken-Ken
Olivia is Livy, Livy-Loo, or what Makenna likes to call her Loo-Loo
I call them both "sweet pea" all the time. I even forget and automatically call DH "sweet pea" sometimes. He just rolls his eyes as me and laughs.
