Nicknames

Is it just a Southern thing or do people all over the world have 50,000 variations of nicknames for their pets and children? I have a laundry list of nicknames for my son and my dog yet my poor husband doesn't have one. At least none I will repeat here. We (my husband) nicknamed our son Bear shortly after he was born. Ok, one nickname is usual. However I cannot stop myself there. He is sugar bear, honey bear, gummy bear (because of his gummy smiles), booger bear (need I explain this one?), bear bear, care bear, really I could go on but I think I hear you gagging...

The same goes for my pug, Rocky. He is Rockdog, Pugly, Puglet, Pugbutt, RockDoggy Dog, Pugster, Rock Rock, Snot Rocket (if you have a pug you'll understand), Pugbert, again I can go on...

I'm just curious if other people do this as well?

I call my Molly, Mollyhead and baby girl. But both are said quite annoyingly, I must admit.

I'm a Texas girl myself, and I do the same thing with my kids!
