My oldest son was Booga, boogaboy, boogalatch, or just boog. When I first came to KH, I wondered why everyone was knitting him a bag!

My youngest is munchkin, chicken little, punkin, my baby (as in "Whatcha doin', my baby?")

DH sometimes gets referred to as sweetie, but we mostly use regular names.

The cat is evil kitty.

By my closest friends, I get called "Apes" or "Ape." They couldn't come up with something cute for "April." :rollseyes: My DH and I call each other "sweetie" or "baby." (Although, DD doesn't like it when we call each other "baby." She says but you're not a baby, I am! We call DD "Sweet cheeks" or "baby."

okay that reminded me of my nephew when he was little. We would ask him what his name was and he would say Devon Robert Smith. I would say "What's my name?" Brenda Robert Smith. hehe

and i know was just sitting here trying to figure out how to phonetically spell how i say boubie and the closest i can get is when i say Mr. Bubble or Double Bubble....but that isn't quite right either....hrmmm :thinking:

My family is terrible about calling people names that aren't their own! LOL!

My sister will call me Fern or Zelpha or Furnace. I call her Bucka or Farm or Bucka Farm. My brothers are Curta Makita and the other is Droofy, Droofus or Undywear. My children are Sammalammadingdong, Hayley-a-Bayley and Sweet Bubbaloo.

I should have mentioned that everyone has a theme song as well. There is an annoying little song that each person has using their "name" that the rest of us sing to them...ahh- it is so much fun!

DH and I have always called each other "honey". It feels funny to me when I hear him use my name when he's talking about me to someone else!!

My grandchildren get called anything from "Muffinboy" to "BumpBump"!!

My best friend addresses e-mails to me as "Dear One". I love that; she' sabout 10 years older than I, and it makes me feel like her little sister.

My cats have all been called "Sweetie"s, although that was not their name. And I call them"BeetleBop", or "Fiti" (to rhyme with Sweetie).

Yes, I'm nuts!!

I use tons of terms of endearment with dh and the boys - I'm another one that rarelty uses real names.

I call DH babe, sweetie, and love.

I call the boys sweetie, buddy, baby. Also: Bobaloo. Boo. Boo-diddle. Bubby. Brother (this is when I'm talking about one boy to the other, as in "Charlie, where's Brother?"; it's a southern thing [where Bubba comes from]). Punkinhead. Punkinheart. Bobert (for Robert). Chaz (for Charlie).

DH doesn't really use pet names, though he does occasionally call me sweetie.

Remember the Seinfeld episode where he and his girlfriend make everyone sick with their babytalk to each other? They call each other "Schmoopy." One of my old boyfriends and I used to call each other that after that episode (eventually we shortened it to "Schmoops"). I once accidentally called my husband that and he had no idea what I was talking about.

I've kinda got into the habit of calling small children "sausage" - sometimes they laugh, sometimes they growl me off.

My DH calls me either "Glaucy, Glaucous, Glomper or Thundercloud"
My DD calls me "mumoll" and DS calls me mummy

My DH's nickname is "Poddy" or "Paddestool". He keeps making up names for the kids all the time. DD's include:"Ralta, Narva, Poupee, Astra, Mieke and Moppy"; DS's include:"Kronos, Jakey, Yarki, The Baby, Beba, Bubble and Bumper"

As for our 4 smelly cats: Dimple gets called Dimpy (or that stinking orange cat by DH), Mischief gets called Missy, Luigi gets called Lugi/Lougi or Weegee and Prada is called Pradie.
