  • They respond their names at different times. But usually around 8-9-month when they start to recognize their name if everyone calls them on it. Wow, your child has loads of names:) Usually it is better if the call her something with a comet. Like Amiya, Peanut... Later she will know her nicknames as well. But under 16-month it is better to call her name most of the time if you want her to respond:)

  • I THINK THEY GET THEIR OWN NAME.. WITH IN WEEKS. But you start confusing the crap out of a kid having a million sub-nicknames!

  • LOL! My DS has had a lot of nicknames over the years (goose, puddin, monster), but he will tell people his name is Ian (or Ian-monster, LOL!!) He's 3 now. I wouldn't worry about her being confused.
