I forgot to mention that they think their collective name is "Little Men". If I ever get a female, I don't know what I'll do

My family, all my friends, and even most of my parents friends call Chloe Wiener or Weenie. But she does come to Chloe lol.

Violet is just Violet or Vi (vye).

Jack is Jack Jack, or dummy, stupid, jerkface, and meanie. His full name is Captain Jack, but we never call him that. Or I call him buddy or puppy.

And then Suzie is Suzie girl, or suz, or just girly. I often say Hey Suz when I see her and it sounds just like Jesus in spanish. Fun fact of the day.

And the cat Sign gets called Cat more than her name.

Astro has so many nicknames. Walrus, Hippo, Wrinkle, Wrinkle-face, Lil Wrinkle, Drool Face, Drooly Puppy, Fluffbutt, and Bubs, to name the most used ones. He responds to "wrinkle!" as much as to his actual name.

I tend to only use his name for training and recalls, and it has a lot of potency. All other times, it's a nickname.

I almost always call Nia Pookie, Pook or sometimes Niadog. But I do use her name too, maybe 30% of the time?

Pit is definitely Chu or Tsu always, unless someone asks me what his name is. Chu is the "formal" name I use for getting him to listen, Tsu is for tha sillies and usually comes out like "TSZEEUUU!!" I don't know the last time I've addressed him as Pit.

Navi is some variation of her name said in the most obnoxious way possible. "AUHHH! IT'SA NAAUUUVUHHHH!". If I'm talking to her seriously, her name sounds like No-aeh kinda, I guess.

Zero is Zero or White Doggy - name courtesy of the neighbour kids.

Holden gets Din most often. Or Ho-Din.

Trent is "Trent" 50% - 60% of the time.

He's also "kiddo"/"kid", "cutie", "turd"/"turdface", "puppy"/"poppet", "baby bat"/"little bat", "butterfly", and other names that have more expletives in them.

Fable goes by 'Beauty' about 70% of the time. When my friend met her for the first time she commented on what a beauty Fable is, and I have called her that ever since. Another nickname is 'Fabes', which popped up because sometimes I think 'Fable' is too long.

Haha, luckily, I'm calling my dog by his nickname. I raised my dog abt 6 yrs now, so he knows his name, and follows me when I call him :)
Good boy, you know~~

I only call my guys by their "given" names in public (and their registered names if they've done something they shouldn't. Well, except Holly because there's no way to sound stern while saying "Hotsy"). Because, you know, they'd be embarrassed by the long list of cutesy pet names they get at home.

Yes, I do call him by his name the majority of the time. I think. I do call him "Diggy" enough that he knows to answer to it, though. :rofl1:

Yes, I do, for the most part. I usually do for everyone though. A lot of people go by nicknames, for instant, that I know, and I still usually call them by their actual name. It's just how I have always done so, so! :eek:
