My son has three nicknames; Monkey, Bug and Bubba

We have called him monkey since the day he was born. I am not sure why exactly, it just came out and seemed to stick.

Last year my husband called him a "little bug" one day just messing with him and my son thought it was funny and so my husband uses "Bug" a lot for his nickname.

Bubba just came about recently and we aren't even sure why...lol

Now that my kids are grown I only get to use their nicknames at special times, and only in private, lol.

For some reason my mother hated names that could be changed into nicknames or shortened. So my siblings and I all have names that couldn't possibly be changed. I followed with my children and never used nicknames, only their real names, (except maybe saying sweetie or honey on rare occasions). The funny thing is that our son James (never ever, Jim or Jimmy) now uses the name Angus. He was in high school when the movie came out, was a little chubby then, wore his hair like that and had some of the same attitutes. He just loved the name. He used the name as his confirmation name and all his friends in college and graduate school call him Angus. He recently had an article published in a science journal and there it was James Angus ________. At least he put his actual name first in case he ever decides to go back to it.

My daughter is usually Boo Boo Bear, Mitzy (she was so tiny when she was born she could almost fit in a mitten and we called her itzy bitzy baby.Mitzy is a mix of mitten and bitzy to remind us of how small she was) or Emi-bee that from one of her first animal sound she made which was a buzzing bee sound. Her real name is Emily. She's even taken up to saying Hi Boo Boooo when we open her door in the morning.

We call BabyGirl "yaki-imo" - when we lived in Japan, street vendors would come thru our neighborhood selling roasted sweet potatoes off little trucks with big roasting drums. Nothing better on a cold , wet day than a roasted sweet potatoe. Many, many times I would hear "yakiiiii-imoooo" and make the husband grab some yen and chase the truck down.

Anyway - we started calling her that at one of our ultrasounds when I was pregnant and it kinda stuck.
