  • Not a clue. I know with my mom though, after she was born, the shortened version of her name was supposed to be Trudy, but her older brothers couldn't pronounce it and instead she became Uti, and she's still called that today.

  • My sister was the only person who gave me the nickname, "Lou". That has an endearing meaning for me to this day. Sometimes I have even caught myself calling my own dd that. lol

  • I am the oldest, but when my son was 5 I was expecting a girl. When I asked him what we should name his new sister he replied..French Toast. Her boyfriend heard this story and calls her French Toast all the time.
