So I come from a family who nicknames everything and somehow the nicknames really stick and are very far from what their original name was. So I have been reviewing some of the nicknames I have accumulated throughout my life.
Katy Jean: My mom always called me this. She just thought it sounded good together. She even said that she had wished she had thought of it when she was originally picking out a name for me. I still like Katy Christine better though. But I will always be Katy Jean to my mom.
Kate Spate, Spatey, Spaters: Hey it rhymes, 'nuff said.
Rosebud: Some people at work called me this.
Hall Child: In high school I called my friend Morgan, "Morgan Child" and so in return she always called me "Hall Child."
Joe: Some people at another job called me this for awhile. It formed from a inside joke having to do with "Joe Mama," can't really remember.
Spongecakes: My BFF's at college would call me this. You don't need to know the reasoning.
Miss Nebraska: People at my job in Rexburg called me this. I loved it!
Kate: Wow most of my family calls me this instead of Katy. So sometimes when other people outside the immediate family call me this it feels a little weird. However, when guys call me Kate, it makes me melt!!!
Cheetah: My sister's good friend who I like to call "Snubs" calls me this. I don't really know why.
Tato: My friend Marcie calls me this. Don't know where she got it from.
Spazz: My first semester at BYUI my roommates called me this.
Red headed step child: I am one, need I say more?
Katers pataters: My grandpa called me this, and I don't have many memories of him, but I do remember him calling me this.
Hunkin Dunkins: When I was like three my dad called me Humpty Dumpkins one time, and I got all redhead on him, and yelled at him not to call me Hunkin Dunkins. They tormented me with if for most of my childhood.
Anyway I am sure there are more, but that is all I can think of at the moment. At least they are better than my siblings' nicknames. I really can't complain with the lot I have been given.
