Tell Mommy: Does Your Child Go By Another Name?

A child by another name is still your child. You spent months agonizing over what name to give your lil one and then one day she decided that she'd go by something different. Most tots have wild imaginations so it's hilarious to hear what they come up with. Brad Pitt recently revealed to Oprah that his daughter, Shiloh, will only answer to the name John right now. He said:

She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it’s a Peter Pan thing, so we’ve got to call her John. "Shi, do you want …" – "John. I’m John." And then I’ll say, "John, would you like some orange juice?" And she goes, "No!" So, you know, it’s just that kind of stuff that’s cute to parents, and it’s probably really obnoxious to other people.

I'm sure you have your own funny tales to tell, so what names have your kids requested (or demanded) you call them?
