Do Tell: Nicknames Between You and Your Friends

Pet names or nicknames reveal intimacy and familiarity; special people in our lives frequently find themselves with new and special names, names created and communicated usually and strictly between friends.

Around Valentine's Day, we asked you to share your pet names for your significant others; the answers ranged from the romantic to the purely silly, showing just how inspired, creative and unique this kind of naming can become.

But what about all those silly nicknames we have for our friends? I really can't remember the last time my best friend used my "real" name; unless we're in public, we mostly use any number of goofy little names we've assigned each other over the years.

So, do tell, what pet name do your friends call you by, and what do you call your best friends?

In highschool I was Gigi. I went to french camp and it stuck. Half my friends still call me Gigi. I call my really good friends Pony - Something to do with wanting a pony friend and having my friends say oh I can be like a pony? Unique I'd say. I have more ponies in my life than I ever imagined... Then I went to grad school and everything became about the meta. Instead of names we call each other "friend" or "thing" (my brother calls me sister and I call him brother) Might as well distill it to fundamentals hey? My boyfriend calls me his wuzzah. Think it might be an australian thing.
