Nicknames

Post by Tatzel » Sun Nov 18, 2012 1:14 am

We have a thread about what's behind our dogs names, but what about nicknames or cutie-names?

Sometimes I call Monobi "Mr. große Ohren" (mr. big ears), "Butz", "Butzbär", "Hexe" (witch - even though he's male haha), "Alte Hex'" (old witch), "Butzbär Peter Karl Heinz Monobi" (always going with a " - das ist dein Name!" this is your name!), Maus (mouse), Babyloo... he does have quite a lot, but I guess he only listens to his actual name, and when I usually say "Hexe!" when I want to play with him and he understands it as play-cue

So, what about you? Got any nicknames for your doggies?

Well, when he's in trouble, he is "Samantha" ( :oops: it sounds better with the 3 syllables in a stern voice), when we play or we both get excited he is "Sammy" like "has my Sammy been a good boy while i not been in" (he loves that one) and when he farts, he's... well, maybe i should not say that in public :D (i have worked out that when he sleeps and wags his tail, he's not having a nice dream.... He farts and wafts :roll: ).

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

For Ulric, he does not have too many, there is Ulrich von Lichtenstein, Fluffy Butt, my husband will call him Big Ears even though bis ears are not that big.
Zelda is already earning some nicknames, Hyena, because when she cries while in the crate she sounds like one, my husband will call her Piranha because of her sharp puppy teeth. Even less often I will call her Little Bird because her wimper whine sounds like a baby bird, so cute.
Rukia, our German Shepherd mix, has the most, Brat because she just acts like one, Princess since she does not like getting dirty, Dingo because her looks remind us of a black dingo and after researching the breeds in her, it was thought that dingo might be in part of what made the Heeler, Camel because she can hold a lot of water until she decides to relieve her bladder, and Daddy's Girl which is obvious to see when you meet her.

Actually Hexe can be males too. I know a male GSD in my neighbourhood nicknamed "Valkyrie" which as of some modern 21st Century anime the Valkyries now have male counter-parts :lol:

I love the Maus however.

LOL love this topic.

Naima is known as Naima-lula, Cuddlebug, Princess Naima, and the Mad Queen (she's a diva). On occasion she also referred to as Crazy Face and Little Beggar.
Kona's nicknames are Kona-Kaboom and Kona-Kabob, which has morphed into variations such as Kona-bob, Kabobs, Bobbers and Bobs. The vet calls her Kona Coyote hah.

My standard poodle Tonks doesn't have as many nicknames. When she's in trouble, we call her Snot or her full name (Nymphadora Tonks). She also gets called Babe, Baby-girl, Fluffy, and Mis Sass (she gives us sass by "talking" when she doesn't want to do something. She still does the command/instruction, but she lets us know how much she doesn't want to do it). She really only responds to her name or Babe (when she's being bribed by food).

Teddy, my schnoodle, has quite a few. He's called Tedders, Cheddar (he was a blond streak down his back), Bubbas (one of my personal favorites), Mustache Man, Little Snot, Feather-Tail (his tail is purple and flagged, so it looks like a giant feather from far away), Little Man, and Schnoodle Noodle. He responds to all of these names, but he considers Teddy and Bubbas as his main names and he thinks of them as recall (which is nice. He comes when called no matter what else he might be getting into).

Both of them get called Stinky whenever they come in from outside because they both love to dig and sometimes they get something smelly, like Skunk Cabbage (if you uproot it, it smells absolutely awful).
When the wolves cry
to the Blue Corn Moon,
When they howl at
the passing of mountains,
When their gold eyes
pierce your mind and soul,
When you become one
with the wolf within,
then I will love you.

Before my cat Kaos died, my in-laws would call him Monster. I can't really blame them since he was a fantastic hunter, but also so affectionate that he would bite your face. Not always, but we think he just got so over stimulated from affection that he would just occasionally lash out like that. He was usually very affectionate.

Abby: Abbykins, Baby, Bebe, Abbybaby, Kid, [Idiot, Jerk, Jerkface] - I use these when she's acting like a lunatic, which results in injuring me (i.e. stepping on/scratching/mouthing me when she's jumping around like an goof, knocking me off my feet, etc).

Pepper: Peps, Pepper Potts (from Iron Man), Peppercorn, Peplicorns (not sure why), Pep Guardiola (footballer/football manager)

Phoenix: Butler, because she follows you around like the creepy butler in the old tomb raider video games and 'Phoenix' (said in different languages which happens to be very similar/same in some)

Husband is a french speaker so they both get called their french equivalent.

Aww I like Goose, my kitty Meeko was called Goose a lot (silly goose).

Wylie's new ones are Woo since he likes to Woo-ooo-wooooo at me and Wy-guy by my roomie.

I definitely still call him Eggo though >_< he needs to learn a better "drop-it" command for his tug ropes :roll: :lol:

Freyja: Spanky (when she has lost her coat after a litter she's nearly naked LOL), Frajeeta-bonita-momasita (for some reason that stuck--just a silly, made up Mexican name), or just Frajeeta.

Darwin: Sir Derwood (no idea, we just make things up), or just Derwood, Darwinian, little man,

Raven: Doodlebug (because she loves chasing bugs), Doodle, and my favorite: Runs With Wild Abandon (LOL!)

Ruuq: Legs.

All the girls get alternately called: sweet pea, sweetie, little girl, sweetheart…

And Fenris, our lab mix, just got a new nickname: Fenders. We took him to dock diving and the instructor thought we said "Fenders" for his name. It stuck. LOL

Kona's official nickname in our house is Ate Chechela (Ah-TAY Chey-chey-la) <Lakota, "Little Father" (OK, "Father that is little") from the wonderful litter he sired for us.

We also call him "Friend" as that is what his name means in English.
