Our 2 yr old is called Hugh. In Scotland the slang name for people called Hugh is Shug, so we call him Shuggy!

We have called our 2 year old daughter "Monkey" ever since she was born. She has since grown into that name by climbing everything!

Our eldest has been nicknamed "Smudge" since before birth because at her first ultrasound, my husband said she looks just like a smudge on the picture, so the name has stuck.

Xavier's first nickname 'Cheeky Monkey' soon evolved to 'Senor (Spanish for Mr) Cheeky', 'Senor Cheeky Pants', 'Senor Pants', 'Mr Pants' ... and now it's just 'Pants'.

On seeing the 12 week scan, our 2 yr old exclaimed "IT'S A CHICKEN!" And so bubba became "Chicken" from that point to this day.

My son John has a great nick name. It is 'Ten Ten' because he was born on the 10th October (10/10). We were living in an Aboriginal community (Kalkaringi, NT) and his real name was a sorry or kulum name and so it could not be said out loud. So, a lot of people got to call him Ten Ten or Ten out of Ten! A sorry name means that someone with that name had deceased and it wasn't respectful to that family or relatives to keep using that name.

Missy Moo, it just evolved from her actual name but especially suits her when she's being a bit cheeky!

I call my daughter 'Chicken', no idea why! Sometimes it's 'Chicksters' or 'Chicky-McGhee', silly but somehow it suits her quirky little personality, Crazy, hey?!

My 3 years old"s nickname has been Mugglecat, since she was born, as she used to purr in her bassinet as a baby and I used to sing a song about snuggling her all the time and muggle rhymes with snuggle and cuddle and she became the Mugglecat. I have since found out they are a character in Harry Potter which I have never heard of. I still sing her song now, although at 3 she is already embarrassed by her mum

She is a lovely, snuggly, cuddly muggle...cat

My mother uses 'teabag' for my youngest because just after she was born, the best way to settle her when she was windy was to lay her on our forearms and jiggle her gently. To this day, she still has that nickname

We call our almost 3 y/0 boy Declan 'Monkey Alan' or Alan for short.

The name came about when he was a new-born and I commented that he was 'the cutest little midget ever', or something like that, simply because newborns are so small. My husband immediately thought of one of our favorite TV shows 'The Office' that has a character called Monkey Alan who's a midget that drives a forklift and started calling our son that.

The name has stuck and now most of our extended family call him Alan.

Our 10-week old son is nicknamed "Tiny" because big brother Archie's first words when they met in hospital were "Aaww Tiny Sid."
