As for me, my nickname as a baby was Eeeper because of the sounds that I made, and that evolved in many directions, to Leeber, Libidibi, etc, etc, etc. In my family, you can't avoid the nickname, and only in extreme cases can a nickname be revoked (ask Kurt about that). Elijah has become E-man to my parents, but to me he is Lijey, or The Lij (long i sounds).
And Isabel? We started with Izzy, of course, or Izzy-Izzy for Elijah, but then we realized that she is quite the gassy baby, so naturally the nickname progressed to Fizzy-Izzy or Fizzabel or just The Fizz. I realize that this might be embarrassing someday, but I am really powerless to stop it. And, it could be worse. Just ask my sister.
Or, as I like to call her...
Well, I'll let her tell you herself. Or not.
