I always find it amazing how nicknames or pet names just seem to be born. I had always wanted to call my sons "Tiger" or "Sport" but instead different nicknames just surfaced.....I couldn't help it!
Jonas- Any version of "Boog". Boog-a-boo, Boogy Man, etc
Chase- his name just fit him to perfectly since we have never stopped chasing him around. Instead of a nickname, his name has branched out into its own type of noun, adjetive, verb......like our favorite Chaseism's!
Cooper- Chunkey Monkey (poor thing)
For me, well that is a funny story. I was born during the Star Wars Era. My mom thought the Ewoks were adorable and meant for that to be my nickname. Unfortunately, she got the names mixed up and started calling me her Wookie...which was the Chewbaca character's race. rrrrrrrr......(imagaine the Chewbaka sound)!
I would LOVE to hear about your pet names for yourself or others!!!
