What are your kids nicknames/petnames?

I have a slew I use at random and a few special ones for each of my children; some silly and some endearing. 

I call my Nathan, Nathonian or Short-Pockets and sometimes still call him by his nurse-name Mr. Moo which has graduated with him to Mr. Man. My Allie hears Allie-finale, stinker (from her Daddy), & Shortcake on the regular. My youngest, Isaiah, I currently have A LOT of pet names and nurse-names for, some I'd have to think how to spell, hahah ; Zaza, Za-mo, Bitsey....the list goes on. My husband and I are fond of petnames.

 Our nicknames are just variations of their names really outside of sweety and hunny and 'Hey You'.

Sabastian is Bastian or Bast

Michael is Mike

Briana is Bri, Bri Bri or BB she's daddy's Princess.

Patrick is Pat or Pat Pat but he's daddy's Monster.

I'm sure there are others but like Gumberly I can't remember them right now.

BEsides the generic 'baby', 'honey', 'darling', 'doll' that, as a southern woman I call every person on the planet??? LOL

My oldest is knot-head. He had a 'knot' on his head-a hematoma, from the birth-scary stuff-but now that he's fine....an endearing nickname.

His name is Ephram. Pronounce 'F-rum'. My FIL calls him E-fram or E-from-Commerce (the city we live in). At Cub scouts the leaders couldnt' remember his name so the called him Big E (as he's been off the growth charts for height and weight since he was 2 years old) it fits. He's often called E-man.

My dad calles Malachi by his middle name, which is Sebastianbig smile minior he'll call his Bastian. He won't let me call him Chi. But I do sometimes just to get a rise out of him LOL He's 4-he's very adamant that his name is Malachi, just Malachi and he is to be called Malachi! LOL (Though his big brother does call him by his full name when he's getting on to him in a very big brotherish way and he never backtalks big brother when big brother uses his full name! LOL)

The are often, lovingly, called dork, punk, geek, weirdo, freak, dorkfish, etc

What wonderful and fun names, lol! It's neat to read the ones that are in common with what we, or our family members, have used for our kiddos. What a delightful way to get to know you all better :)

Ian - I've called "bug" for a long time.. it's short for lovebug. At scouts we call him "aftershock". He always vibrates/shakes his leg when he is especially frustrated or nervous.  Come to find out, DH doesthe same thing and always has so DH is "Earthquake" and Ian is "Aftershock"- especially great since we live in southern CA.

Sean is "Stealth boy"... He ran away from us and got lost at Edwards Air Force base, their annual Air showwith 200,000 people. He was just about 2yo. My Cousin was there with his DS who got REALLY sick and was puking all over the place, the rest of us got busy trying to help him out and Sean decided to take off. He has ADHD and never gets scared alone so he would never call out or answer you if he wandered off. He was gone like a stealth in the night!

Heidi is Punky...like Punky Brewster for her eclectic way of dressing. She picks the most interesting outfits. The other day at Boy Scouts, she was wearing a BRIGHT NEON yellow sleeveless top, and her karate gi pants (baggy and all white) tucked INTO her pink cowqboy boots! Yeah..that's my Punky!
