I'll pretty much answer to anything, lol. My family calls me so many different things and a lot of them are by accident; I have a cousin whose first name is the same as my middle name and several people in my family have names that end similarly and so they all get mixed around in peoples' heads when they try to call me by name. I've even been called by my aunt's dog's name
But my real name is 'Bethany'. I've pretty much been called 'Beth' by every day people, but just about everyone who meets be thinks my name must be 'Elizabeth'. It drives me bonkers
. Not that there's anything wrong with Elizabeth, it just isn't my name and there's hardly any personalized jewelry or key chains with 'Bethany' on them and it makes me cranky
I have one a-hole friend that likes to call me 'Beth Annie' for some reason, the jerk
But my mother's main nickname for me as a child was 'Boophers'. I have no idea how it came about or what the hell it's supposed to mean, lol. It's since been shortened to 'Boophie' and 'Boo'. She went through a 'Beffie' phase, too, and she called me that in front of my track coach one time. He thought it was just the cutest damn thing and never let me forget it
My french teacher liked to call me by my surname only, even though we had assigned french names. I'm not sure if this was because he taught an english class my older brother was in or because my surname is actually a common french one. He didn't use the proper french pronunciation for it, so I'm betting it's the brother thing.
My BFF calls me 'B-chan', which I think is cute
ANYWAY, the moral of this story; I've learned to suck it up and answer to any damn thing
