Are there any funny names other children call your child?

My son's cousin can't pronounce his name (Jacob), so she calls him "Bebop". I just think it is so cute!

  • It's actually my son that can't procounce his cousin's name. His name is Mason and my 2 year old calls his Fason! I tell him "Say MMMM-ason." and he says "FF-ason." He sounds so cute when he sees him he says "Hi Fason!" and I tell him "That's Mason!" and he says "Yeah Fason!"

  • My son, Malek, couldn't pronounce his sister's name, Ariana, so he called her "Noonez or Nana." Her older brother, Jason, calls her "cherry head." They call Malek "Leeki."

  • My name is Lena.

    My kid brother and sister could never say my name. So they called me Nini.

    My sister is now 17 and still occasionally calls me this as do my nephews who are 6 and 3.

  • That's cute..........Jaylee sounds like jelly. Cute to hear how kids interpret names and how they hear things!

  • My nephew Ryan, who is two, can't pronounce my eldest daughter Summer's name. He calls her Ummer and when he says it really slow and loud it's like Um-ah! It's really cute. My older girls call my baby Pascale Paz or Pazzy. My second daughter Cassidy's nickname to friends and family is Tiggy. Summer came up with it when Cassidy was born and it's just kind of stuck. My third little girl Juno sometimes refers to herself as JuJu, which is cute.
    My friend has two girls aged seven and three, called Finley and Ava. Ava calls her big sister Fiddy, it's really funny and cute. Another friend has a son and daughter, Theodore and Billie. Billie, who's three, calls Theodore "Teddy-Boy". Very sweet :)
