All about me 10 day challenge – Day 2

Today is day 2 for my “all about me 10 day challenge”. Earlier, I was contemplating whether I should continue this 10 day challenge thing or not. After I few minutes, I found myself in front of my laptop typing in my entry. I guess the urge to finish this challenge got the better of me (wink)

Day 2 – Nicknames you have; why you have them

Aubz/Aubs, AuBu, Aubi, Abu, Abie, Bonch, Bonchie, Bonchiekay, Bonchai, Bonsai & Bata. Those are my nicks at this time.

Aubz/Aubs – the first 3 letters counts for the first 3 letter of my given name. As for the last letter, “S” and “Z” can be used interchangeably. It depends on the one’s calling me.

AuBu – the first 2 letters counts for the first 2 letters of my given name and the second 2 letters counts for the first 2 letters of my surname. A classmate of mine back in high school coined this nick.

Aubi – the first 2 letters counts for the first 2 letters of my given name, as for the third letter, it also counts for the first letter of my surname. As for the fourth letter, I don’t know where my classmate got it.Β  I always introduce myself using my whole name and she finds the idea of putting the letter “I” next to the first 3 letters of my name cool.

Abu – the first letter comes from the first letter of my first name, the last 2 comes from the first 2 letters of my surname. A colleague of mine uses this to address me.

Abie – my classmates/playmates back in elementary school uses this nickname to call me back then.

Bonch – my nickname at home. I was supposed to be the “bunso” in the family so the “bunso” was morphed into “Bonch”. I don’t know how did that happen. Sure it sounds alike. I wonder why they didn’t bother to change my nickname when my dear little brother arrived.

Bonchiekay – my nickname “Bonch” morphed again. This is the nick my big brother kuya Bok and little brother JL use to call me when I don’t respond to them immediately back when we were all together.

Bonchai – one of my cousins uses this as her endearment to me. I could literally hear her voice upon typing this. (Bonchaaaiiiii, ughhhhh)

Bonsai – nickname given to me by my younger brother when he feels like making fun of me. Sometimes, he sends me forwarded text messages with a greeting at the last part of the message that says “good morning ate bonsai!” I don’t like this nickname that much but if it’s my little brother calling me this, I think I could endure.

Bata – my kuya-kuyahan back in college gave me this nickname and he’s still using this to address me until now. Why? He still thinks of me as a kid.

(bowing my head) I, thank you! There you go. Nicknames enumerated. As for the why’s, some I have answered but some still remains a mystery even to me. (echos)


yey! I finished day 2! (nanonosebleed na ako sa EOP, haha, 8 to go) πŸ˜€

    Such fun to remember the names we’ve been called by our family and friends. I’ve been called Agsiebabe, agsie-agsie, but only by dad. Of course if I write what else I’ve been called, It will reveal my real name, lol.

    Cheers !

    ahaha, ako rin, may iba ibang nicknames. palayaw na bigay ng magulang, ng mga kapatid, ng mga kalaro, kaklase, pamangkins and katrabaho. parang apat ang nag-stick, haha.

    sa family namin, papangitan ng nickname ang uso. pag di masyadong pangit ang palayaw, di bumebenta, ahaha.
