Okay, so we don't high-jack a thread.... Whats your GSD's common nickname and what is the general response you get from it??

Nicknames are vital when picking a name, we have Killian, who is now nicknamed KILL..... It really shocks people when kids can't say Killian and you say can you say "kill" and you realized what you just said..... *SIGH* I blame my husband.
I get a jaw drop response if I call him KILL, and if I call him Killian, they are like, OH, after the beer Killians?? I say no. Not like the beer..... *eyes roll* LOL!!

My GSD's name is Sinister and I call him Sin. People always say "Is it short for cinnamon?"

Sometimes when I say Sinister they think I am saying Sister. :crazy:

Our dog's nickname is Elsiepookins. Yeah, not exactly a shortened form...and if it does get shortened it's to Pookins. I can't remember the last time I called her "Elsa" haha.

You could try to call Killian Kiki or something and get the kids off Kill!

"Schindler"- Everyone asks why he was named after a nazi. I explain that the movie Schindler's list was made about a German war hero "Oscar Schindler" that saved almost 1200 jews during the Holocaust. Famous Oscar Schindler quote-"Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire."

That aside, his nicknames are- Schindiggler, Schindy, Schindy Schoo Schoo, Sugar, Schin-diddly-um-cious, and many many more....lol

I call Kaiser "K" .... I also happen to call me niece Kayleigh "Kay". My sister isn't thrilled about that but in my head they are different!

Most people think I say Raymond when I tell them Raven :confused:

Stark's nickname is "Bubba". He was such a big boned baby that the name just happened one day and stuck.

I have been known to call out, "Bubba heir!" and not realize it until someone points it out.

Recently Stark had a nose issues (something was either stuck up there or he had an infection - vets couldn't figure it out and it went away on it's own) and had some clear discharge coming from it, boogers for a lack of better words.. and so we have called him that from time to time as well... "Booger come here". He listens to all, but I would say that Bubba is the name we use the most (maybe even more so than his given name).

Stosh gets called Mr. Stosh because our vet has a client by that name and when we're waiting they always call him that. My husband calls him Stosh Man. A guy at my office thinks his name is Socks or Scotch, he can't figure out which. Only one person has ever called him Stoshie and as soon as she said it she wished she hadn't.

Frag is usually "shortened" to "Fraddums" or "Fraggle" or "Fraggley Foot".

People that ask his name in public think he's Fred. :rolleyes:
