I was just wondering what nicnames you have given your kids? how did you come up with them? have other people nicnamed your kids? what do you think?
My Son has had many different nicnames, starting durring pregnancy! he has been: Peanut, Busterini, Proffesser Fusser, Captain Wonderful, Mr. MaGoober, MaGoobs, Trippy MacFallDown, Cranky McFussy, Goob, Gooby and most often Gooba. Most people know him by Goob or Gooba when I talk about him.
His given name is Xavier, so his nicnames have NOTHING to do with his name. Actually it irritates me when people try to shorten his name (to what "X"???) or when they call him X-man. that just sounds stupid to me. People asked me from the day he was born "oh his name is Xavier? what is his nicname going to be?" or "how do you shorten that?" whats wrong with calling him Xavier?
What do you think? Share your nicname stories!
