Nicknames. We all know someone who goes by what seems to be a random (and odd) name, but isn’t actually their birth name. Well, my family comes from the south. So I have an aunt Possum. She’s a quirky lady, but then again, possums are quirky animals, right? My grandmother on my dad’s side was often called Nim by my grandfather. They called my dad Finnegan. My dad calls my oldest sister Scooter every once in a while. Somewhere along the line I started calling her Punk, or Punky, probably because she cheers for Jeff Gordon and I think that’s a punk thing to do. #TheChampDrivesthe48
My mom’s dad called her Teddy (her name is Terry so I’m sure it comes from that).
Do you have any odd nicknames in your family? Feel free to share in the comments!
