I come from a family of nicknamers. I think it comes from my Dad’s side, which makes me wonder if it’s a Southern thing. He’s from Alabama and started the tradition by nicknaming my grandmother “Miz” - it comes from calling her “Ms. Winters” when he was dating my mom.
Dad’s nicknames for me (just a few): Sweet Sister, Glorious, The Disputor
For my brother: Your Mother’s Methodist, Our Man, Strong
For my mother: My Supervisor, Sweet Mother, Pussy(!)
For my husband: My Sergeant
I have about 1,000,000 of my own for my husband. A few: Sweet Pea, Little Ears, Hooch, Boo-atch
For my dog: Princess Fuzzybutt, Silly, Short and Furry
My best friend (her name is Heather): The Heed
My co-worker, Ivy: Eye-Bee
Any other nicknamers out there?
