Nicknames I've Used For My Son

In my own mind, I'm this stoic, dignified person who would never use sappy pet names for my loved ones. Certainly I've never succumbed to the temptation to call my wife snookums.

Nonetheless, here are the names I've called my son so far:

  • Scooby-doo
  • Scooby
  • Booby-scoo
  • Boo
  • Bug
  • Buddy
  • Bud
By the time he's 20 I'll be calling him Irene and he'll be subsidizing my therapy.

  2. I could swear I've heard you use "Bud" in the past. I say this because now I use this in reference to my own son, in addition to standbys such as Goober, Munchkin, and Little Monkey.

  3. Yep, add Bud to the list. I think Bug came from Bud. Bug seems odd to me, but I use it a lot now.
