My mother gave me the name Dodie which she stated was a nickname for Dolores, I never thought that was true. Also I lived on Dean St., Bklyn one of the Brown family siblings gave me the nickname Tiny because I was small and very young looking for my age but just as old as they were.

When I was born my last name was Baer, so my father decided to call me Teddybaer.  There were people who never knew that Teddy wasn't my real name.  I left the nickname behind when my father died. Since then my favorite nickname was given to me by the beautiful girl that joined our family when my younger son married her mother - my new granddaughter called me MawMaw. Now, at age 24 she still calls me that and I love it.  In not too long I'm taking on a nickname of my choosing.  It'll be "Herbdoc" when I finish my PhD in botanical medicine very soon.  However, I'll never give up the MawMaw nickname, or the Mom that my sons call me.  What's in a name? Depends on the source!

Nicknames abound in my family... at school, because little of nothing seemed to phase me, and I never seemed to get riled, my classmates nicknamed me "Shucks"... my youngest child is "Smurf", her sister is "Jellybean", and their older brother is "FMTWR" (which stands for Fat Matt, the water rat)

In middle school until freshman year in high school, my nickname was Moose (I am a female.)  At first I hated it but then I realized I earned it!  Kids called me that because I was the fastest, strongest, best hitter, thrower, runner in the school to include boys.  I still have awards at the middle and high school to this day.  One is for longest shot-put throw ever!

 

Now in adulthood, my boss and good friend tagged me as HunnyBun (embarrassing). It happened when we all went to lunch one day and the server called me HunnyBun. "And what would you like HunnyBun?"   Kinda funny actually.  My boss thought it was hysterical.  Hence, the nickname.

About 22 years ago, during my last semester in college, I volunteered for one of the early sports "e-zines." My university email address was gdgambz1@louisville.edu. One day, on a lark, somebody who was a fan of the zine called me "Gambz."  (He said it "just flowed out of him.") Since then, classmates, co-workers, bosses, landlords, etc. have called me Gambz. My fantasy football team name is "Silence of the Gambz."

I was named Jewel when I was 12 by a friend that is like a brother to me. For years, he was the only one allowed to call me Jewel. When I became a human rights activist, I mostly went by FemAnon.

It's Dee Dee.  When my younger sister was learning to talk, it was the closest she could get to Vicki.

Cookie!  Because, they tell me, as a child I'd take about a 1/2 dz. chocolate chip cookies and put them in a coffee cup filled maybe 1/2 way with milk, and create a cookie stew.  It's the only way mom could get milk into me!
