Choosing an Auntie Nickname
You don't have to overthink a nickname because, unlike a birth name, a nickname can be changed in a heartbeat. While nicknames aren't as serious a business as choosing the first name, put some thought into what you go with for family members. Here are some considerations in choosing the perfect nickname for a favorite Aunt.
Check With Her First
Don't just assume that your sister is cool with something. Didn't you learn that golden rule of sisterhood back in childhood? Ask before assigning a nickname. Get the all-clear from her, especially if you are thinking of calling her something unique and creative.
Put Personality Into Perspective
What is your baby's aunt like? Is she wild and whacky or traditional and prim? Consider some of her personality traits and try to pair her up with a nickname that suits her style.
Keep It Short and Simple
Nicknames are not meant to be long, drawn-out titles, so pick something that is quick and easy for children to say.
Make It Meaningful
Honor the aunt in your child's life by giving her a nickname to be proud of. Make sure that whatever you choose is meaningful to you, her, and hopefully your child. While nicknames can be changed easily, some will stick no matter what, so pick one that evokes good vibes.
Being an aunt is a special honor in itself, and the bond between a child and their aunt is an irreplaceable one. Someday he will share his baseball stats with her first, and she will share her deepest secrets with her. Whatever you choose to call your child's aunt, make sure the name reflects how much you love and respect her and how special she is to both you and your baby.
