My husband has a sister with the same name as me, so when I joined the family things got confusing. The family members quickly began referring to me as Rachel Sparkle, obviously taken from my Twitter handle/online screen name, which in turn is a play on my maiden name. Now that we have 3.5 sweet nieces (one is still cooking), they call me Aunt Sparkle, a nickname that makes me so happy!
So I got curious about grandma/grandpa and aunt/uncle nn's that are a variation on the person's actual name. In my own family we have:
and Danny--> Big D (grandfather)
What fun relative nicknames do you know? Any that are related to the person's name?
