I love nicknames. I shorten almost all of my friends names (unless I know it bothers them) because I think it feels more intimate. My nicknames include:
1) Wiss (My dad gave me this one)
2) Melissa Malou (another one from my dad)
3) Meliss (My mom and sister call me this, and some friends)
4) Love (This one is from Adam, he has always called me love and I LOVE it. It is rare that he calls me by my first name)
Adam's nickname is babe.
I call Hannah:
Hamma, Hammie, Ham, Han, Hannie, baby girl, baby Hannah, and most recently...NOOOOO STOOOOOP!!!!!!!!!!!!
