Okay so I've been sitting on this for a long time. I think that it's kinda weird when I tell people what I'm naming LO and then they ask, "What are you going to call her?" Ummmm, her name. To me NN are something that the child kinda develops and grows into. Sometimes they are shortened versions of their name, other times it's an extension of their appearance or personality. But just something so that you don't have to call them their real name seems weird to me. Examples of appropriate NN's: my father's name is Linwood so everyone calls him Lin or Redd because of the red undertone of his skin.
Am I alone with this or am I being random again? (I've been known to do that. LOL!!!)
