I just turned 26, and I am only now just starting to have decent nicknames. I blame it on the fact that my name is already one-syllable.
Family nicknames from people who supposedly love me:
Lyn-Lyn. Ling-Ling. Lang-Lang. Squirt. Polongpong. Pumpkin. Four-eyes. Skinny. Ning!
I will forever be Lyn-Lyn to my relatives who have known me since I was a pre-schooler. Even today, if I called one of their phones, and said I was “Lynne,” they’d have to pause for a clueless minute, forcing me to say “Lyn-Lyn” and then they know exactly who they’re speaking with.
Not so cute names given by people who are supposed to be my friends:
Linnie the pooh. Little Lynne. Lindemere. Short Stuff. Linn-ey.
How the boys holla.
Gorgeous. Beautiful. Cutie. Shorty. Shawty. or my favorite: “Hey Girl…”
This year, I’ve finally gotten good nicknames.
One guy consistently calls me Gorgeous, which is alright by me.
Brandon calls me Sunshine, which I love!
A friend recently called me Linn-ey, which I used to hate, but I think I’m okay with now.
If you have any suggestions on nicknames, I’d love them…. try to keep the derogatory ones to yourself, though! LOL
