Best nickname I've ever run into is my nephew/bro-in-law. Nephew's name is Gregory. At baseball his first year (7yo) there were 3 Gregory's. So the coach asked our nephew if he had a nickname. Gregory asked 'what's a nickname?' and the coach answered it's the name your dad calls you around the house. Gregory lit up and said 'Oh, yeah! Hemroid!' That was 16 yrs ago and we're still laughing!!!

Dov 02-03-2005 11:50 PM

Punkin' Unkin', Crunch-coat, Chunkin' Munkin', Chunka-munka, mini me, dude, chicka, wiggly worm, my-man-my-man, punka-doodle, doodling worm, bug, funny-man, munchy, booger, sweet peanut.

And I'll be adding some of you-ins' nicknames cuz they're hilarious!
