Baby nicknames you can't stand?

Are there any nicknames you have heard people call their kids that make you crazy? My sister used to call her son "baby Man" and that name paired w/ the irritating way she said it made my DH cringe every time. he hated that name. Luckily she has stopped (He IS almost 7 now! lol)

I personally detest "bubby" and "sissy". And it's bad enough when the siblings call each other that, but when the parents do it too. ick!  My SIL calls her DD "Sister". It always makes me think of the Bearenstain (sp?) bears. lol

Lol I hate "lover boy" when people call their son that I wanna go " he is not your lover" its weird. And the "bubby" and "sissy" thing bugs me too. My DH tried with my kids but I stopped it fast. But I call my kids "curchuck", my daughter she has chunky legs. And "stinky" or "stud" my son cause his feet stink and he always looks like a stud, he walks like his sh*t don't stink.

I understand. My oldest (14 yr) is Madison and I used to insist NO ONE was to call her Maddie. And she did the same thing. I HATED that nickname and almost didn't name her Madison because I didn't want her called that. Now, she is Maddie! LOL She and I both have come to like it after all.

We named our son Jacob Wyatt but we choose for him to be called Wyatt. Long story as to why. Dh's family calls him JW after I have repeatedly asked them not to. It makes me livid. We call him monster or I call him mr man. Not sure why...

I don't think it's cute when people call their girls "mama/mamas" or "sissy", "bubba/bubby" kind of bugs me also for boys or girls. I would never tell someone what they can and can't call their own kids though.
