When it comes to nicknames, my mom doesn't so much concern herself with the cleverness or quality of the nickname, but rather the quantity. She is quite prolific.
A good portion of the time, my mom just spews out a new nickname that no one's ever heard before, yet somehow we always know who she's talking to. Typically anything that starts with a B, G, H and M is a nickname for my sister, and anything that starts with a B, D, F, P, S, T and W is a nickname for my brother. Even though my brother and sister both share the letter B we can almost always distininguish which nickname belongs to who.
Anyways, for your reading pleasures here is a condensed (yes condensed) summary of the more common names we hear around my house:
|Little Brother||Little Sister||Me||My Father|
|Baboon||Boger||Devil Chil'||Ol' man|
|Bean Counting Ben||Buji|
|Beep Bop||Buji Wuji|
|Din Din||Ho Ho|
|Ding Dong||Ho Ho Nuck Nuck|
|Dinsey||Ho Ho Ro Ro|
|Fi fi||Mega Goo|
|Fila Lila||Mo Mo|
|Fila Lila Jing Jong|
|Fila Lila Jing Jong Sing Song|
|Fila Lila Loonski|
|Pi pa poon|
I think it's worth noting the uneven distribution of nicknames across family members. I have a theory that the number of nicknames you have is in direct correlation with how much my mom loves you. Further study is required...
