Whats in a name?

I am going to let you all in to my inner circle today, try to contain your excitement. You know me, I am always up for poking fun at myself or sharing embarrassing stories....today might fall in the "outer realm" of that.
Now, I know that people do this also.....I have discussed it with some friends.....but no one likes to admit to it. So just what am I talking about?
Nicknames! And not just for family but animals too. You know somehow we rarely remember how these names evolved or their origin but they stick around. I have several nicknames for my animals and I have even made up songs just for them. You are going to have to "sound out" some of the words since they are made up with no real spelling!!
Here are just a few things I refer to my family..................

* First up, Abner
Abby
Fabio
Foobee
Foo
Foobee-amangato (Mr. Roboto)
Chicken Buns
* My baby Ralph
Ralphie
Roo-bear
Roar-bear-to
Roo-berto (this must be said with a very spanish accent and a twirl of the tongue)
Pony (When I say "Roo's a Pony" he runs up and down the hall jumping and prancing like a pony)
 * Callie, is my sister.....she celebrated her 12th Birthday last week.
Shawn
Shawn-shaw
Callica (this must be said with a very regal accent)
Calleee (emphasis on the "ee")
 * Betsy is another sister I have that lives at Mom and Dads
Betsy Ross
Miss Ross
Diana Ross
Diana
My Supreme
Princess Diana (ya you like that evolution?)
 *Isabella my love....
Bella
Belly
Bell
Mooshee
Moosh
Mooshee-Moo
Bellykins
Bella also has a few songs one being Nelly "Boots with the Fur" we have changed up some of the words to suite her better! :) And of course, she loves it!
* Oscar
Osk
Oskie
Oskie-Pants
Rownie (like row row your boat)
Rown
Je'brown
Pup
Puperoni
Pup-pup-puperoni......puppy pants (this must be sung like a song)
Rhino Buns
Pumpkin Loaf
* Marissa
Maroon (like the color)
Roonie
Ariel-ee
* Curtis
Curt
Curtidge-cheese-man (he hated that growing up)

Me?
*My family has called me Coley and my close friends have and some still do. I got this name when Marissa was a baby and couldn't say Nicole so Coley fit.
* Nickle - I got this when I weighted tables at Mickey Mantles, a good friend called me that

That is pretty much it and NO I never go by Nikki, that is just not me!
My family.....we also have a huge list of made up words and phrases that mean nothing to anyone but us and yup, we even know the definition of our made up words! Maybe one day I will share, if I can figure out how they would be spelled! haha!

Haha, we definitely do nicknames for Molly. Hers include: the Mollster, Molly Polly, Lil' Miss Molly and Sweet Molly Purebred. How could you NOT have nicknames for your animals?! ;)

The pet names got confusing... so I went with their given names!
