Anything is possible with me Randy. I do at times have a slightly warped sense of humour. And am sometimes accused of being a little cheeky.

But I promise I won't call you late for dinner.

Glad to make you laugh a little Julie...now that I think of it, I have probably been called a "joker" more than once or twice...

Not calling me late for dinner will cover any other sins Kate...

Sorry gigi...we are not trying to jack your thread...

Wow, Geneva is a really pretty and unusual name! I love it. I don't really have any nicknames. Friends will call me Nads to be annoying but thats about it. Always been called by my name, Nadia. Not really a name that can be shortened or changed... unless you have friends like mine.

Wow this is informative! it's funny how names evolve. I once had a cat called Magical Mr Mistoffelees after Andrew Lloyd Webbers Cats musical. Now you can imagine 6 kids running around calling that out every time he went hiding for a bit of peace and quiet! Lol. His name progressively shortened to Mr Mistoffelees then Mistoffelees then Stoffee and then the poor thing broke his leg and from there on in was referred to as Stiffy!
We also had a cat called Feather on the Tail! And another called Bunce which came from my sisters mispronunciation of the word 'bounce' when my dad was trying to get her to bounce the ball as a toddler

Living in Australia I have become accustomed to being called; Nimah, Ny-am-hah, Nemo, Niminy, Nia, Nymph, etc. lol

Most people call me Cathy, but most of my family call me Kate or Katie. I only get my full name of Catherine if I am in trouble and if I am really in trouble I get Catherine Anne.
Thanks! I guess I could technically call you Squidge but I'll stick with Cathy or Kate

Seriously, it's good to have some names for you and it means a lot that you wanted to share that info

I wasn't sure what to call you before and now... Well I just can't decide
Oops! Guess I made you more confused Thank you Dee! I agree, it's hard to go back

I truly LOVE your name "Geneva".
I personally would be most inclined to call you that unless you have a preference on how you would like to be addressed.
I always seem to have a tendency to call people by their full name.

For example, my friend goes by "Pat", but I always call her Patricia.
My husband goes by "Ted" but I generally call him Theodore.

Conversely, I sign my name as Deb (for convenience sake) and most of my friends call me that, but I actually like the name Deborah
(which should be pronounced with three distinct syllables as DEB-OR-RAH) rather than 'Deb-rah' as most people are inclined to say it.

I absolutely HATE the name "Debbie" and can not abide being addressed in that manner.

Bottom line is, if you specify what you wish to be called then I will comply with your preference.
Hehe well thank you for telling us about your preferences, too!
I'm so, so sorry, I know you must have had enough of this, but the name Debbie just:

So yeah, I don't like it much either
Personally, I don't really like the name Deb-rah, but love it as "Deb-O-Rah", which is how I always say it

I can just picture the conversations with hubbby:
You: THEE-DOORRRR!! WHERE ARE THE FIDS??
Ted: Over here, thought I'd give them some salad!
You: Oh, okay, Theodore, thanks.
Friend: Hey, Ted!
I actually tend to call people by their full names unless they specify what they'd like to be called. I have a friend named Dakota and everyone calls him Kota but I've never called him that in my life
Oh, and go ahead and call me Geneva!

Deborah.. I've never known whether you prefer Deb or Deborah.. thought it must be Deb, since that's often how you sign. But.. I'll stick w/Deborah now.
Just not Debbie.

I'm boring... real name is Judith. Friends call me Judy... my kids and other family tend to call me Ju or Toots. I think I'll stay w/Judy, though
Well thank you very much, and please do continue to call me Star!
I think I'll call you Judy, too! But I love your little nickname "Toots"
This thread is actually very interesting!

Kate isn't it funny I too am a Catherine, but I always have been shortened to Cathy, Kate, Cath which I DO NOT like .
But I was always called Catherine when I was in trouble as well. from my dear Mum.
Well, thank you, Cathy!

I'll be sure to never, ever call either of you Cath. But my sister had a math teacher named Mr. Cath when she was little who made her cry, so I don't think I would call anyone that

FaeryBee has a preference to the full name Deborah over Deb, but it need's to be pronounced in the three syllable form to be correct...got ya covered there Deb o rah...

prettyboy has suffered silently through enough cath's from me to fill at least one page of a webster's dictionary...I shall ban that shortened version of Cathy from my talk budgies vocabulary forevermore...

Kate C....my great grandmother's name was Catherine, and she was known to me my whole life as Grandma Katie... I can't think of anything a kind hearted person like you could ever do to get in trouble with me, but if it should somehow happen, I promise not to call you Catherine Anne...

jrook....I shall call you....Judy...

My Christian name is Randall but only a few people call me that with any regularity...the wife uses it when I am in trouble followed with my full middle and last name too...
It is pronounced hard and fast...kind of like a Zorro slash...
I have had the nicknames Grinch, Skip, Chuck, and "Z"...
Most people just call me Randy...
You can call me whatever you like, just don't call me late for dinner...
Well, well, here we have a very informative synopsis of this thread by the esteemed Randy!
Poor Cathy, Randy!
What if you roll the R like Rrrrrrrrrandallllllll

Oh, don't worry, this is surpassing all my expectations. Quite enjoying all the ruckus, actually. And learning something new about everyone while I'm at it!
I feel like everyone has like a "name confession" or something

Thank you Nadia! I like your name too
You can't really shorten it, but you can rhyme?
Nadia
Radio?
Patio?
No, no, that's not working. Okay, how's this?

There once was a fab Nadia
Who was a TB member-ia
She had Ivy the budgie-a
And Milo the blue chap-ia

Nadia the fab-ia
Had a lovely name-ia
And also a problem-ia
Where nothing would rhyme-ia

Nadia, the charming lady-a
Inside her pretty house-ia
Renamed everything-ia
To rhyme with her name, Nadia!

I agree, this has revealed all sorts of useful information!
Those are the best names ever Quite an evolution indeed, Darwin would be proud.
I think it's hilarious that you are called all of that, this made me laugh out loud. Although I'd like to pretend I knew how to say your name as soon as I saw it, I mentally called you "Knee-um", okay, don't judge
But Nemo? Really?


Goodness, everybody, this is extraordinarily amusing!

So Niamh, I read on another thread when you met Kate, she said your name is of Gaelic origin ... I'd love to know how to properly pronounce your name if you don't mind .

Lol yes it's a Gaelic name alright. Its pronounced Neev
It comes from a mythical legend in Ireland about a story called Tir na nOg (the land of eternal youth). Niamh arrived on her white horse to Ireland having traveled from Tir na nOg and fell in love with Oisin (which is where I got my little budgie's name from) (Oisin is Gaelic for "little deer") and brought him back to the land of eternal youth on her horse. Oisin was the son of a great Irish warrior - Fionn Mac Cumhaill. 900 years passed by and Oisin wanted to visit his father in Ireland one last time so Niamh gave him the white horse and clear instructions not to dismount the horse no matter what he saw or the magic of youth would be lost. When he arrived in Ireland, Oisin was sad to see how weak everyone had become. He noticed a man trying to move a large rock. Oisin leaned over to help and on the last heave he slipped and fell of the horse and turned to dust.

Either I am getting old or I am particularly thick this afternoon Neve, but where did you get Squidge from.

This thread is just too funny.
