Had this discussion on a bird board a while ago and again today at work.
What are some of your nicknames given to you by friends and family and why did they give you them?
My most favorite nickname is Amb. It's how I sign e-mails and such.. I forget who gave it to me because I've been called that all my life.
The younger kids in the family call me Mamber (because they can't pronounce my name..) that has stuck and pretty much everyone in the family calls me that now.
Jam/Jammer mom and dad used to call me this.. no idea why, never asked but I assume it's because jam sounds like amb?
In high school my friends call me Ber (brrr) because I'm addicted to ice. They used to call me Red because of my hair.. I hate that, my hair is NOT red darnit.
My friend Kimmie calls me "Jezzieluv" mostly because she can't remember my real name and partly because she's just weird like that. I used Jezzie as an online name like 15 years ago... you'd think she's know my name by now.
The strangest by far is Blake. A few really close friends and I had this strange conversation one day (totally sober believe it or not) and somehow we ended up renaming each other to boy names.
It's stuck and to this day we still refer to each other by our boy names.. which gets us strange looks sometimes.
