does your child have a nickname?

I named my dd Brianca with the intention of calling her Bri or Bria for short. My boys couldn't say her name, so they called her B-Conka. She will be a year old Feb 1st, and we are still calling her Conka. I know it's horrible, but I can't help it, it just stuck! Anyone else's kid have a funny nickname?

  • My youngest's name is Layla and we call her Lay. I know it's awful because half the time I do it I realize what a Lay is and I don't want that nickname to stick. I aim more for Rooney or LaRue.

    My Chloe goes by Chloe most of the time, but sometimes we'll manage a Chlo Chlo or Clover. She's quick to correct us.

    Aspen has always been Aspy or Appy.

  • We call my DD bean....we didn't want to tell her name before she was born, so we nicknamed her JellyBean at the first sonogram (she looked just like one) and it has shortened to Bean since birth.
