Nicknames ?

January 19, 2009 at 6:22 pm 3 comments

I am probably the worst nickname selector in the world. Off late, I have been reaccessing the nicknames to various people / dog I have come across and none of them, NONE corelate to any of their nicknamable characteristics. For example, my dog Rummy, the cute dog he is, has the following nicknames:

– Haavrani ( Snake Queen )

– Goob Rani ( no meaning – queen )

– Goobini ( the female goob?? )

– Bunga (??)

– Bungini ( the female bunga ? )

– Dinga (??)

Now, my pet is a MALE dog named Rummy. And he looks like this ( most of the times, if you are not dangling a biscuit in front of him )


Now, read the nicknames again. Do they make sense? No? I can’t make sense of them either. But I keep calling him these ridiculous names again and again. Why? I blame my parents, they did not pass on their nicknames genes to me. They have such decent relatable nicknames for me and my sister, like for me

Cluelesschick – nickname cluelessu

Sister – nickname Sistu

Very stable, relatable nicknames. No one will raise their eyebrows or think there is a family history of madness. Then why me? Why?

If you need any more examples of my madness, then I am sorry to say I cannot reveal anymore. The only reason I put up Rummy’s nicknames are because he is illeterate and cannot read my blog. Unfortunately, my husband, sister and others I know and call by various other names are very literate and would kill me once they read the blog. I like to live.

    So what does Rummy look like when you dangle a biscuit in front of him?

    My mom had the strangest nicknames for our dog: Pogo, Pogesh Chakravartigalu, Potita, Gururaja, Karipinti …

    Oh and she and my dad occasionally called me ‘Nono’ … coz I said no to to everything.

    Clueless: Oh when you get a biscuit out, he sits in attention with a mini Niagra drool falls gushing out of his mouth! Your mom and dad have a really cute nickname for you!

    heh us desis have a habit of adding a ‘u’ at the end of any name and call it a ‘nickname’ 😉
