    Well, I really don't have nickname other than "Purple" because I always have something purple on.

    But the nickname I gave my sister is pretty unique. Her real name is Julianna, but we call her Poogy! It all started when she was a baby, we called her Ju Ju Bee like the candy. Then when she got older I called her Sissy Poo or Jooge (pronounced Joo Geh)… anyway to make a long story short, one time I accidentally merged them and called her Jujee Poogy and unfortunately for her once was all it took. Poogy stuck 🙂

    My kids and some of their friends call me "Meemer." I don't know how it came about, but thye've found it's a very handy way to get my attention at the park or in a crowd where everyone is named "Mom."

    Long before I was a grandma, a sweet toddler was over visiting and apparently she was unable to get my attention. "GRAMMALYN – look at this", she shouted. I was so honored by the name that I just kept it, and in 1998 it finally fit perfectly.

    When I was little and was forever climbing trees my aunt nicknamed me Mighty Joe Young, (who was a B-movie King Kong). I was called "Spider" in high school because I was so tall and long-legged. My husband calls me "Toni-baloney-by-Marks" (after an old commercial on tv) and some people just call me "T" which I really kind of like.

    My nickname is Cook. It use to be Cookie when I was little. My family still calls me Cook.
