This is just for fun, I love some of the nicknames people have for their kids...they come up with some really cute things! Even silly things! My 6 year old has been called "Goober" since she was a baby...she loves this nickname and it makes her laugh! My 6 week old I call Boo Boo and Muffin Puff. What are your childrens nicknames??
My son's name is Michael (now 20) so his first nickname was Mikey. He also had a few others Monkey (or just Monk), BamBam, Monkey Butt, and Little Man. The main ones were Mikey, Monkey Butt, and Monk.. His friends just call him Mike.
My daughter goes by her middle name (Cheyenne) and she's been known as Shiny, CheyChey, Monkey Feet or Toes, Girly Whirly, Tooty Fruity, and Tootsie. The main ones for her so far have been Shiny and whatever silly we call her (because she calls us it back and we're making her laugh). She's 5.
Because her first name is actually Madison, my son said he was going to call her Square (for Madison Square Garden). When she was about 2 and had already learned her shapes, he called her Square and she looked right at him and immediately said "Oval". So that is their nicknames for each other.
We change the goofy nick names every few days, but "Blueberry" has stuck for my grand daughter. But then a few weeks ago when talking about what her name would have been if she had been a boy, we found a new nick name. She was told if she had been a boy, her name would have been Kingston, but then she came running to me and said, "Grama, when I was a boy my name was Kickstand!" So we have been calling her Kickstand a lot lately.
My oldest is "Buggy", K. ladybug shortened into buggy :)
My 2nd is "Lee Lee", short for Alison
My 3rd is "squirrel", her name is Claire...squirrely is what we used to call her curls...but now her personality is funny like a squirrel!
My 4th is just "Clo", hard to shorten Chloe :)
LOL @Dad on Purpose...when my second son was learning to talk we figured out that he was calling my oldest son "hey" like it was his name. "Hello hey...bye-bye hey...hey at school?...where hey." We stopped saying "hey" so much LOL.
Daughter is punkin, punky or punkin munch
1st son is twig, twiggy, Krisha or cha-cha
2nd and 3rd sons are meatball or, collectively, meatballs
My nicknames for my daughter Zoey are.. ZoBeth, Zo, Missy Miss, baby girl, Peanut, Bitty-girl, Goose. Her nicknames from her daddy are, Z-Bo, Zee, Zo Zo ....And her nickname from her little brother is Sissy.
My nicknames for my son Raiden are..Rain, Rain-Rain, Rainey, Stinky Man, Boogie, Monkey Man, Bubs. His nicknames from daddy are Raid, Rai, Buddy. His nicknames from his sister are Ray Ray and Ray.
I love nicknames and my children have had several nicknames.
My son has been: scallywag, scallgy, stanky stu, stu, and most recently bubba or bubby (my daughter's word for brother)...his real name is Skylar
My daughter: muffin, muffy, muffy moo, moo, moo-moo, mooter, moogie, Moogie T. Bear, T. Bear, Muffy T. Bear, pooginz, poogie, Poogie T. Bear, Little Miss, Missy Moo, moo muffin, jelly, jelly-melly...it's a wonder she even knows her real name lol (which is Ivy btw)
This granddaughter has a few nicknames - but the one used most when she was smaller was Squiggles (cause she could squiggle into/out of anything) -- also has been sweet pea or half pint or a shortened version of her name.
Have a great uncle that for years called me "candy apple" and I have no idea why - I sure don't like the things! Another uncle has always called me "baby girl" -- think that might have to do with the timing of his becoming family!
This is so fun. Well, when my son was a baby, he was my " little Pook-a-loo" I have no idea where I came up with it, but it just stuck. Now he is just " My Pooks" ..For some reason, he still likes the name.
My oldest was "pelusa" when she was younger because she born with so much soft hair, no she is just Ferny Fern.

But no matter what, when I am mad at them I call them for their name, and if I am really mad for both (first and middle name), lol.
I knew I was in REAL trouble when my mom would call me by my names AND last name, RUN!!!!!!!!
My oldest is "Beanie" "Bean" or "The Bean". This comes from when we had our first ultrasound and she looked like a lima bean. We started referring to her as "the little bean". She will be 10 in April and we still call her that. She hated it when she was little, but now she loves it. She's going to have "Bean" put on the back of her softball jersey this season.
Our middle son is "Joshie", "Josh-O", "J-Man" or "Buddy".
Our baby boy is "Bo-Bo". We call him that so much that he's thinks it's his name. We always have to correct him and tell him his name is Brendan.
my daughters name is rachael michelle she has been called shelly for ever
my boys are

joseph has been called Fina don't ask why no clue just always has been lol
samuel has been called beanie forever

The joke in my family is that we have monkey toes. My daughter was born and the first thing my husband said was oh great she had monkey toes. Since then she had been little miss monkey toes. Her name is fiona and I don't mind fi however if you call her fifi you may end up with a bloody nose. She is a beautiful girl not a poodle. Also she is my little sweet pickle or just pickle.
"Booger" or "Booger-girl" No idea where that came from, but that is what my hubby calls her. Sometimes in a singing voice, "you're my booger girl!"
LOL He also calls her baby and princess.
Others are: "baby", "sweet", "sweetheart", sugar-pie", "angel", "angel-face", "baby-girl", "boo-boo", "princess", "sweet-baby", "stinker", or "stinky-butt", "silly-billy", "cuddle-buggy", or just shortened versions of her real name :)
She is 6 :) It's first - middle - middle name when she is in trouble :)
OH, also, Natania - Lasagna, cause they rhyme and it's her favorite food :)
And "Booty" cause her whole life, every time she dances, she shakes her butt, that is her one move that has never changed. "Shake your booty!" and now sometimes it's just "Hey, Booty, whatcha doin?" or something, LOL
(I only had one nick-name as a kid, Mandy. All the affectionate "baby" and stuff was all for my little brother, the favorite.)
