  • I call my son "Bubba" or "Bubbie". I don't know where I got it from, it just kinda came out one day and stuck. People look at me weird lol. His name is Izaiah so sometimes we just call him Zaiah too.

  • your life would be easy and you'd be happy if someone left you alone to parent YOUR children but happiness is a government conspiracy. my son is William Michael Nelson Jr. my hubby is William Jamal and his family calls him Jamie. the family had alrady dubbed our son lil Jamie so to nip that cuz hubby hates the name jamie we made the nickname Jay. it's stuck. im not changing for anyone and believe me i get questions! also my daugter is Ciara Cheyanne. we call her CiCi or Chey (pronounced like 'Shay'). i wish someone would say something lol

  • I dislike it more when others judge your child's nicknames, or think they can pick your child's nickname. I always ask what a child's name is to either that child or parent, and respect it as that... as you mentioned it's not my child. As for if I call my kids' something else, yeah... their names are long and beautiful, but I have shorter nicknames I created when they were younger because others tried to shorten their names, and other peoples choice of shortening wasn't always pretty.
