Do you have a nickname or do you always just go by your given name?

My name is Jamie and I go by Jamie. Well my MIL calls me James a lot of times, lol.

Re: Nicknames
My name is Melissa but I go by Mel mostly, though I have a few nicknames used individually among my friends :)

Re: Nicknames
I get Mom or Babe but those aren't exactly nicknames :P

I'm Angela. I usually go by Angela, but Ang is pretty common too. I think one or two people call me Angie.

Re: Nicknames
My obsession with a certain video game character (guess who!?) led to pretty much my entire set of Boston friends knowing me as "Samus"

I call my husband "Monster" and so now he calls me "Monstress". LoL

I guess 3 syllables seems like a lot to me because I'll often sign things as "Jess", which leads to people thinking that's what I want to be called (actually I don't really care either way). I cringe when people call me "Jessie" - talk about flashbacks to middle school.

Re: Nicknames
I go by Margaret, but some people really have a problem not calling me by a nickname. So Mags and maggie comes up sometimes. I also have a whole group of college friends that only know me by Magpie.

Re: Nicknames
My name is Mindy and most people call me that. Occasionally someone in my family will call me minners (from when I was a kid). I prefer Min since I don't care for the name Mindy. A friend of mine used to always call me Min, even though no one else did, and I liked it. Sometimes DH calls me Min cause he knows I like that better.

Maya gets called Mayita sometimes and Sophia has no nickname. We like calling her Soph, but she doesn't like it.

Loni September 10th, 2013 11:29 AM

Re: Nicknames
My full name is Loni it isn't short for anything and I get called Loni, and Mom. I've had many nicknames over the years but none have been because of my name. My grandpap called me Cricket when I was growing up.

DD1 is Eden Rose and we call her Rosie a lot.
DD2 is Ivy Karolyn and gets call Ivy K by her dad and I.
DS is Devlin James and was supposed to be DJ but he hates hates hates to be called DJ. We call him Bubba so much that when he went to preschool for the first time last year it took him a while to realize he was really named Devlin.

Re: Nicknames
My name is Melissa and I only go by Melissa. I was called Missy all through elementary and high school and hated it. I only introduced myself as Melissa when I went to college.

Re: Nicknames
Mack is pretty much what people call me. I've learn to accept it, but only with a K.
Dh calls me cookie which is way better than the nicknames my friends and brothers could come up with (like when I turned 13 and my brother decided I was big mac and not little mac.)

LOL, DS1 is James and we call him Jamie.

I have always just been Sarah to most people. Except my twin brother who called me butthead, and I am now graduated to Dr. Butthead. But eh, I could live without that one.

Re: Nicknames
I'm Aimee, pretty hard to shorten it. Some of my family used to call me Aimeekins when I was little. DH and I have our cute little names for each other, he rarely calls me by my name.

DH is Matthew but is Matt to everyone except his grandmother. DS is Jackson and is still very much a Jackson, we have tried to call him Jack and he doesn't like it.
