Why don’t you level with me: you have some cute and some not-so-cute nicknames for different people in your phone, don’t you?
Let’s go down the list: there’s Dum Dum, Ugly, Brainless, Jimmy No Nose, Mommy Dearest, Snake Charmer, etc. The list goes on and on.
My point is that we don’t have any control over what people choose to name us in their phones, and these folks were nice enough to share their own experiences with this phenomenon.
Let’s take a look.
1. She’s right.
Just go with it!
I am in my wife’s phone as Earthshaker Babymaker

2. He sounds romantic.
How’d he come up with that?
Today I discovered my husband has me in his phone as “Jennifer Wortman.”

3. Yes, you are.
It’s all she could come up with.
In my daughter’s phone I’m listed as Birthgiver

4. That’s rude!
You need to have a talk with him.
Could be worse. One of my identical twins has the other twin in his phone as “spare parts.”

5. It’s gonna be him.
Who else is gonna call?
I have my husband in my phone as “Probably Brad” since he’s the only one who calls, if it rings it’s probably Brad 🤷♀️

6. That looks about right.
And you better agree with her…
I had my wife in my phone as just her first name so she changed it when she was getting some pictures off of it a few months ago. pic.twitter.com/LsGaNMkHNX

7. Awww. Cute.
Still a babe!
My husband has me as Babe.. I’m 65

8. I’d like to know the story behind this.
In love with a Panda…
In grad school a classmate passed out in a bar and it took an hour to find his wife in his phone because she was listed as Panda.

9. Here they come!
Run for it!
My kid has me listed as The Feds. 😑

10. That’s love, people!
Here’s to feeling good all the time.
I have this for my wife’s iPhone name, “She loves you yeah yeah yeah” When I have my headphones in and she texts, I get an audio readout that relates to me, “She loves you yeah yeah yeah says…” It makes me feel so glad.

Have you given someone a funny name in your phone?
Or maybe you found out that you’ve been given an alternate moniker?
