I do. My parents still call me Foop. Apparently I was called Madame Kafoops as a youngster and was shortened to Foop over the years. My parents are the only ones who use it still to this day. I'm 36. My youngest DD is Bear. Used by close friends and family. She has recently started objecting saying, "My name isn't Bear, it's Hayley." She starts school next year and wants her real name used. She will always be my Hayley-Bear though. My first DD is bub, has stuck since she was my first bub. Doesn't get used as often as bear though. They answer to both their names as I sometimes automatically use their pet names.

DD1 we used to call stinkabell. She got called tinkerbell by her friends at daycare, and she was going through a stage if doing lots of poos, so I started calling her stinkabell.
DD2 gets called Poopy, coz she is always doing poos.
I don't have any NNs really, just the shortened version of my name.

Everyone in my family calls me by my nickname. When I was born my brother couldn't pronounce my full name so he just used part of it. Since then it's just stuck. I actually never remember my dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles or cousins calling me anything else.
I'm considering changing my name to my nickname seeing as that is what I'm known as (and its a perfectly normal stand alone name).

DH is Bugs - named by a former boss because when he told DH to do anything the reply would be to do something unnatural with a carrot.
DS is Tallie - he was born tall and, once he could talk reasonably well, when anyone called him a little boy or a baby he would reply "I'm not a baby, I'm a tall boy".
DD (Georgie) is unfortunately known as Porgie
Me - no nicknames

I call my husband Peanut, and now so do a lot of our friends, their kids, my mum etc.
All the kids have nicknames, but Reilly gets Roo more often than his name, by everyone.

DD is Turtle. Because she does everything so slow or takes her time to respond to things.
DH is Kizza or Kizzels from me and gets upset if any of the girls at work call him that.
I am just the shortened version of my name. Or my dad calls me Lady Jayne sometimes when he's upset with me

Mine is just a shortened version of my name. But most people use my full name.
DF is Goof, which stuck from high school. I don't use it though, it doesn't sound right to me.
DD is Munchkin.

I mainly just have the shortened version of my name, my brother (and only he is allowed to call me this) calls me either Baby D or Little D as I am his baby/little sister.
My children get a variety of names from myself and DH, DD gets Princess, baby, sweetie, munchkin, missy, baby girl, Anna Bear, Annabella. DS2, Zacca, Zac monster, babe, munchkin, bubba boy, Zac Attack. DS1 gets babe, sweetie, honey, munchkin, Mase, Fruit loop, Macey (I tend to call him this when he calls me mummy), and my dad stirs him up by calling him Tiger.
