A woman has blasted her friends for ‘making up names’ for her daughter.
Sharing on the forum Mumsnet the mum shared that she was really ‘irritated’ by the fact she and her husband had named their daughter Megan – but others were using shortened nicknames.
“We call her Megan at home,” she wrote.
“Other people seem to think it’s ok to change it to other versions: Meg, Meggy, Megs.
“Her name is Megan and that is what we call her at home. [Am I being unreasonable] to think people should just call her by the name her parents use and not make names up?!
“It really bloody irritates me.”
Surprisingly most people argued that it wasn’t something she is going to be able to control and she needed to “get over it”.
I must admit as an adult I HATE people, that I don’t know or only just met, calling me “Trac”. It’s a bit presumptuous.
But if it is a friend or family member I don’t mind.
My boys don’t really have nicknames either. We generally call them by their correct name most of the time with a few cutesy titles chucked in occasionally.
Does your child have a nickname or do you prefer to use their correct name?
