The worst...yes each of the 20+ (I honestly don't remember how many there are!) chickens all have names, yeah I'm crazy!
That is so common. My Mom use to address me like, "Bruno, Ginger, Sky Rocket, Carrie..." LOL. I sometimes call my son Boo boo (my nick name for Jose`) and sometimes when I'm talking about my son or Jose` to someone else, I switch their names.
I don't tend to mix up Jose` and Chulita though, for some reason.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776
