Nicknames for children?

I was wondering if any other mom had nicknames for their kids that stuck.

We have Bobby III so we call him Trey and have since birth

We have Victoria which we call Tori and have since birth

We have Caterina which we call Caterina but others including teachers call Cat

We have Chasity, which didn't have a nickname so my SO's family desided to call her Squirel (only they call her this)

  • Alexander my 16 yr old when he was little we called him : Ally Paly now its just Alex
    My younger son Benjamin Chandler Chase = we called him Chase before he was born because that's what Alex called him. He went by Chase until 1st grade when he realized it was easier to write Ben. Now he's Ben. No real nickname I guess, sometimes I called him Pumpkin.
