Nicknames for your Children.

My Daughters Nicknames – A look behind the scenes at their awesome Nicknames.

If you are a regular reader of my blog or a follower of my Facebook page – Yorkie Not Just for Dad’s or my Instagram – Athomewithayorkshiredaddy. Some of you may be confused about my choice of nicknames for my Daughters.

On the social platforms I have for my Blog and also in the posts I write for you on here, I don’t share their real names. I know I know… I’m not that cruel to actually give them these as their real names. I chose to use their nicknames more so of a safety precaution with them being broadcast to the worldwide web.

Recently I have had a few comments and DM’s about how their nicknames came about, how I chose them and began calling them these. Well this is the purpose for the post. Delve behind the scenes as it were and read the explanation behind my daughters nicknames.

Daughters Nicknames

So where do we start this off… I know let’s go right back to the beginning and start with the eldest of the five girls. Yep… you heard correct five. Don’t worry this won’t be that long, but if you want to grab a brew and some biscuits that’s absolutely fine by me.

Pork Chop

So Pork Chop is my eldest daughter. She is 9 years old and currently lives with her Mum (my Ex-partner) and is with us at the weekends and extra time throughout school holidays. Her nickname stemmed from my work and career as a Butcher if i’m completely honest. From the first moment I held her the words slipped off of my tongue… My beautiful Pork Chop and it has stuck ever since. She still get’s called it these days too, 9 years on.

Mouse

Mouse is my eldest Step Daughter. When I first met her mother (my future wife and amazing partner) Mouse was only just 2 years old. She was such a quiet and placid little girl. Always was, her mum used to call her M***y Mouse (sorry for the *** that’s her actual name) and due to her being such a quiet and peaceful natured girl Mouse seem to stick, as she was as quiet as a mouse. But… That was until she started school. Now at the fun age of 8 she isn’t quiet or peaceful or placid anymore but the nickname still sticks.

Titch

Now Titch is my youngest Step Daughter. Only a tiny 15 months old when I came into her life. She was a funny little character but oh was she small. I think even at 3 years old she was still in 12 – 18 months clothes. Yep she was a Titch. This is where her nickname stemmed from. Even though over the last 18 months or so she is shooting up and is becoming a beautiful young girl, now 7 years old. She is so much like me with her sense of humour and sarcastic nature, it is quite scary.

Pig

Now Pig is mine and Sarah’s 4 year old daughter. She is such a funny girl. She is very quirky and unique to say the least, just like her younger sister Beast who we shall get to in a moment. Pig’s nickname came around a little like Pork Chop’s really, due to my career and work as a butcher and the fact that well… How else can I put this but she was…. Fat…. No sorry not fat… She was a chunky monkey, yeah that sounds better doesn’t it.

She was a definite chunk, I mean she had Rolls on rolls as a baby. And when the weaning stage came around, Damn did she love her food. What other 3 year old would request a Birthday steak over a Birthday cake. Little legend after her Daddy’s heart she is.

Beast

Well where to start explaining this nickname… Beast. It is very bold isn’t it. She was always a little Lottie bug or Squib. That was until she was around 4 months old. Sarah recons that it is my fault, being the stay at home dad spending time throughout the day with Beast and my influence rubbing off on her. Sarah thinks that I have broken her.

We attempted to send her back with the Stork under a recall but they returned her Un-repairable. Nah she Isn’t that bad really, she is rather random and crazy. What other toddler takes great pleasure and fun in doing what is only known as a suicide dive off of the sofa.

But the reason behind her nickname is her Growl. Such a cute demonic beast like growl. I say demonic as it is something that you wouldn’t expect to come out of a 19 month old toddler. She is so funny and cute though and a pleasure of a Daughter. Never a dull moment with this one around.

So there we have it, a bit of a behind the scenes look at my family with he reasoning behind the nicknames and how they came around to be used. Check back at some of my Previous posts of family life with what I call the group as the Princess Tribe (well I am a Dad of 5 girls, who else can say they can shout Princess tribe assemble in the toy and magazine aisle in Sainsbury’s .

Here are a few previous posts of mine just to offer an insight into my Daughters.

Recently had a rather long time without seeing my eldest daughter due to the covid19 pandemic and lockdown. Here is a letter I wrote to my Daughter.

I was also asked in a question via a ask me anything on an Instagram story and it was quite a popular question, How do I find it and manage with 5 daughters.

Here you can find 4 out 5 of my girls in their element, outdoors and having so much fun on a family day out to Scarborough Castle.

Let me know in the comments what nicknames you have for your children, I’d love to hear them.

  2. I love their nicknames! Way more imaginative than large and small. And less likely to become untrue when small boy gets bigger than large boy in about 10 years time! 😆 Mine have lots of nicknames each, constantly changing. My dad still calls me stinker (because I did pungent chemistry) and skinny ribs, even as I approach 40.

    1. 😂 That’s great and that he still calls you them now. They’ve had these names since they were babies
