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

I'm 23 and still referred to exclusively as Bean, Beanie or Boo by my entire extended family, with the exception of my sister who calls me Sissy. They always used my nickname in front of my friends, and if it ever bothered me, I can't remember. Not to mention, even if it had bothered me, it's not like they would have stopped My family is serious about nicknames. None of us are ever referred to by our given names, and the grandkids have all been given nicknames that have stuck too.

I lucked out. My older brother has been called Mullet since he was young. And it's after the fish, not the haircut, which makes it even more embarrassing
