What's In A Name

Tasina stole an idea..and I will too. Nicknames!
Here are all the names from my family.

Let's start w/ Dad. He's been my dad for 41 years but before that he's had a few names.
His name is John Henry but has been called:
Johnny
Uncle Johnny
Honey
Dear

Pops

Giovanni Enrico
...his number one name though is Uncle Johnny. Even my mom refered to him to ME as Uncle Johnny

Mom:

Mom
Aunt Pat
Patsy Cline (I call her that)
Mother ( I use that ALOT)

Jeremy:

Germany (my dad has a really hard time saying Jeremy)
Jerm (J's mom)
Dad
Big J (my friends Dave and Charlie call him this)

Drew:

Drewski (Grandma Prill calls him this)

ME:
Mary Pat
MP
BB (came from Drew as a baby..he couldn't say Mary Pat so we tried MP which became BB)
MPQP (old one..came from girlfriends who noticed that at a bar I was the fastest peer in the midwest)
Matricia (cousins combining Mary Patricia)
Most Precious (again cousins)
Mary Patricia (usually used by my mother)

Now stumped for something to write about? Here you go..steal the idea and link it back!

This is a good idea! Actually, I've already done this when I first set up my blog on my About page!!

This is cute. Our family is so boring...we hardly use any nicknames. Better go make some up.

Hey my mom is Patty Sue but her mom usually calls her Sue. My nickname is Ree or Reese, sometimes Lisa Ree, since I'm Lisa Marie. But my mom always calls me Lee or Ree, usually Ree.
