  • Yeah, sure. My daughter's name is Jossalyn, but we call her Joss most of the time. My stepmom calls her Jossie. My grandparents can't say Joss OR Jossalyn, so they call her Josh LOL!

  • I use nickname for my son. Because I don't really like my sons name. He is named after his father. Everyone calls him buy his nickname even his little league coach. We all call him (Baby boy) He is also the baby of my family and he has three older sisters.

  • My sons name is Austin James. We had originally thought about calling him AJ, but once he was born he was definately an Austin! Everyone calls him Austin, my MIL's boyfriend always calls him James (no clue why either) but it doens't bother me and my son responds to it!

  • Our daughter's name is Kaylyn and we call her Kay or Katie... It's not that anyone dislikes her name.

    Our sons name is Mason and Kaylyn calls him "Mase" sometimes.
