DH and I hate nicknames, which is why our children have fairly short names that you can't do much with. And we firmly correct people who call our children "seven dwarfs" names--you know, take their name and add "ie"? No, his name is Dov, not Dovie, and she is Soroh, not Surie. Sometimes we even had to set teachers straight: his name is Dov, not Dovber.

My dd used to call her brother Dovid Sissy. It really confused people, especially when his hair was still long.

We give our kids double names and our intention is to call them by their proper names. Well........

Yitzchok Zev is now called "Pitzy-loo" (yitzchok--->yitzy----->pitzy)

and Aryeh Leib is called "Lubi" (Aryeh Leibi----->Aryeh Leibi Lubi-----> just plain "Lubi")

I know its awful but I just can't help it!
It doesn't matter much because in chaider they'll just be called by their last names anyway.

I was at a friend's house and she found that whenever we were visiting, her daughter insisted on going into the kitchen to eat cereal. We couldn't figure it out until it dawned on her- Her daughter's favorite cereal is called "Pitzy"!

well my daughters nickname is VLADEMIR and we have a moo.peanut. and a few other nicknames that would give the names away.

my last child is peanut. when he was born he was so small. and the nurse asked us what is his name. we explained that we dont give the name out till the bris so she asked us if she can call it CHARELei we said no so she said she will call it peanuts. and it has stuck...
