Day 20 - Nicknames

Well, I guess it's easy to say that "Gabby" is one of my nicknames.

Frankly, I prefer it over my real name only because my real name is hard to pronounce for most English-speaking people. ^_^

However, I do get "Miss Gabby" a lot. Even from people I barely know. It's funny.

Others I have had are Gab, Gabs and Gabbers. I will tell you that I really dislike when people I hardly know call me Gab or Gabs. I already have a nickname, and you feel the need to shorten it even more?? Only people I know well can do that.

The only other one I have, that's from my family, but isn't used often anymore, is "Beets." My older brother Michael used to call me "Gabeets" all the time. I honestly don't know why. A cute form of Gabby? Anyway, my mom took it and shortened it even more to Beets. Okay, really, I don't know if that's the way one would spell it, but ... there ya go. I don't think I've heard her use it in a long time. Oh, and a lot of my family (and other Hispanics) usually pronounce my nickname as "GAHvee" instead of the more American "Ga-be" if that makes sense.

What about YOUR nicknames?
