Re: S/O Names - when should babyish pet names retire?

I'm 27, and still "Ninks" to my family (my given name is Eleanor, don't ask.) The worst are its spin-offs, "Stinks", "Stinky" and "Stink-bomb", which, sadly, I still answer to, even though every time I swear on the grave of my Granny that I'll not do so again in public .

Having moved around so much, I don't have friends who knew me from childhood. I like the feeling that my nickname gives me, that there's someone who knows me so intimately, and remembers who I was when I was small.
