When my children were babies until present,my husband Pop and I have always had nicknames for them. Why, I don’t even know. Yes we would use their real names but at times we used nicknames. They never seemed to mind,if as long as it was not in front of other people. But that was never an issue. Siblings amongst themselves even called each other names. As a family we all get along quite well.
Here are some of the names:
VanCheddar,Beeb,Ness,Peek,Mountain Chick,Bun Cheddar,GB
Jotko,Paigach,Jakers,Kujo,Flune Prune,Eagle Feather
Floss the Closs,Festus,Floopsy,Zechmeister,Zechel
