How did you get your nickname?

Basically my brother nickname with one different letter

The nickname that my friends gave me is [name_u]Berry[/name_u], and it originally stemmed from my having strawberry-brown hair, and then when I told them I loved berries, it really stuck. [name_f]Kinda[/name_f] funny now, being on a site where all the users are called Berries :joy:

Hazabelle - From a friend who combined my name (Hazel) with my favorite Disney-Princess (Belle)!

[name_f]Muffin[/name_f] - From… my favorite food as a toddler? Perhaps my round face? Dunno!

Mouse - I was a very squeaky child who loved [name_f]Maisy[/name_f] Mouse.

Hoo-Hah - I couldn’t pronounce my own name as a child!

[name_u]Basil[/name_u] - Well… who doesn’t love a rhyme!

I honestly have no idea where [name_f]Honey[/name_f] Pot and [name_u]Pumpkin[/name_u] ( though my dad says it more like Punkin :joy: ) came from. [name_f]My[/name_f] siblings call me [name_u]Man[/name_u] and Manno sometimes, which is very annoying. :unamused: Other than those, I don’t really have any other significant nicknames.

  1. I used to ‘growl’ instead of cry or babble as a baby, hence, ‘Growl’

  2. There’s a guinea pig food brand called ‘Gerty Guinea Pig’ and we have guinea pigs and some how I started to get called [name_f]Gert[/name_f] or [name_f]Gertie[/name_f] :man_shrugging:

Same with me they couldn’t say my name so they changed one letter and it stuck but I also have an international nickname from the spelling of my name in my other language which I prefer but is mostly used by family and people there (or friends who also speak the language and know how to say it) since in english it sounds terrible as it is never pronounced right

my dad has always called me bear… i’m really not sure why! :bear:

fun question! i don’t really have a ton of nicknames, but when we were little my brother couldn’t pronounce daisy right, so he’d call me “zee” and to this day he rarely calls me daisy. :joy:

I have a lot of nicknames…some of my irl nicknames (put in order of how they evolved lol):
[name_f]Lottie[/name_f]
Lottie-Lou
Lucy-Lou
[name_f]Lucinda[/name_f] (my mom actually calls me [name_f]Lucinda[/name_f] on a regular basis…)

[name_u]Charlie[/name_u]
Charlie-Char
[name_f]Char[/name_f]

[name_m]Chuck[/name_m]
Mermaid (uhm, very long story…but I’m a mermaid on here loll)
& a couple more that I’m forgetting at the moment :sweat_smile:

Teddly - when I came out to my friend, her dad kept on forgetting my new name and accidentally combined my dead name with my chosen name.

Mushroom/Shroomie - basically bc I love mushrooms, I think? [name_u]Or[/name_u] it could be bc I use to be hippie and tired and a lot people thought I was on something. Lol

[name_m]Just[/name_m] the first 3 letters of my first name lol

[name_f]My[/name_f] childhood best friend (practically my brother from another mother :joy:) couldn’t say [name_f]Megan[/name_f] when we were little, so he always called me May-May. His mom has always called me [name_f]May[/name_f] as a result, and most of my family has also caught on at this point!

There are probably more that I’m forgetting!
