I got thinking the other day about just how many nicknames Assumpta has collected since she came to live with us. I mean, she knows her name, but she has ended up having a zillion terms of endearment heaped upon her in conversation as well, which often mutate into other terms of endearment, like:

Assumpta: Sumpter, Sumpter-Numpter, Assumpta Meow (or Miz Meow)
The usual Generics: Kittycat, Cat, Pussycat, PussyGato.
Face derivations: CatFace, MeowFace, FurFace, PawFace, or just "Face"
Paw derivations: Pretty-Paws, Puddin-Paws, Pussin-Paws, Paddle-Paws (she hates these, and always gives us a disgusted, sideways-ears look when she hears them)

Even when the dog came to our house, he went from being just Scamp to Scampy-pants, to Mr. Scamp E. Pants, to Mr. Pants or Pants (for some reason, he loved being called Mr. Pants ) At a couple of points when he was adjusting to his new diet, he ended up being Poopy-Pants

How many nicknames has your cat garnered? And how many of them would be completely embarrassing if your non-cat-people friends heard you say them?

My Mum told me Dylan's name would end up being shortened to some rubber thing that girlies use beginning with a "D"
(tried to keep it clean lol)

Dylan gets called lots of things, mainly by the boyfriend, like smelly bum. Nothing interesting name wise has developed so far but if I think of any later I'll come back lol
