Thread Name: BS: 'Mudcat' and other Unusual Nicknames
Subject: RE: BS: 'Mudcat' and other Unusual Nicknames
My mother, whose given name was Eudora...(named after the email program, I guess.☺) was always "Aunt Dodo" to her nephews....but NOT to the world at large!
Some nicknames are cute and/or interesting, but I'll confess, I never saw why some women tolerated, and even encouraged, names like "KoKo" or "Tootsie" or "Bunny" or "Bitsie" or ...well, you get the idea. I see it among some friends and family, but on stationary? At work?
