    Re: Nicknames!

    This is frustrating - I have many nicknames for my pigs but I have no idea how to translate them into English!

    The group as a whole is
    -Schweinenasen (pignoses),
    -Schweinchen (piggies),
    -Paniknasen (panic noses),
    -Wuselnasen (wuseln = shuffle, waddle),
    -Brüllnasen (brüllen = cry very loud),
    -Wutzen (Wutz is a common nickname for pig) or
    - Beißbratzen (which I can't translate. I use it when they chatter their teeth at each other and are bad piggies. "beißen" means bite which they never do. The word is more onomatopoetic.).

    Gobi = Mops (Pug)
    Zirbel = Zirbeline, Zirbelzicke (Zicke means bitch)
    Bonnie = Süße (Sweetie), Sirenenschwein (food alarm pig)
    Sydney = Sydney cause she somehow doesn't call for nicknames.

    I often add -nase (nose) to all piggies' names.

    As a group - piggles, squeaks, squeak-a-beaks
    Rouge (who is pregnant) - fatty (in a nice way, because she is huge)
    Rubia - poor little girl (she's always picked on by mama)

    Re: Nicknames!

    The family calls them "the pigs" or "the boys"

    I call them chubbs, bubbs and the boys
    I call Furlong chubby chops, fatty, tubby and sometimes pork pie. Ascot is called cheeky chops or poochie (don't ask...hell knows where I got that from).

    Re: Nicknames!

    As a group; Piggies, boys or girls.
    For lap time or talking to an individual pig I call them by their name. I don't have nicknames for them.

    Re: Nicknames!

    As a pair: The Oompa Loompa's or Squeaky Wheekies.

    Phoebe: Foobers, Foobey Woobey (Doobey), Chubby Bunny.
    Porky: Mr.Miniwheek, Porkster.

    And the worst by far is "ShookyDoodleBoodleWoodle" which is what I sometimes call Phoebe or Porky around hay time. It gets them all excited. It started at "sugar," then evolved to "shoo" & then "shooky." And then I just added the rest. My boyfriend rolls his eyes whenever I say it. Heehee.

    Re: Nicknames!

    Mine are "The Fweeps" collectively.

    Mercedes is Mwore-cedes, like my little cousin says it. Also, chub-muffin since she's the biggest one.
    Hope is Momma Hope, Hopie or Hopie Hope.
    Manteiga is Manteiginha, Teginha or lemon butter (she's a lemon agouti, but I can't claim credit for the nickname.)
    Georgia is mostly Georgia.

    All of them are at times, fluffy-butt, squeaker, fluffball, fweeper and sweet pea.

    Re: Nicknames!

    Before i got my Lola, it was my continued demand for several weeks (and through out my battle with my landlord) that i wanted a G. Piggens. I thought it sounded ghetto, my cousin thought it sounded literary. She even made a list of some possible titles of books my G. Piggens could write.
    Now that i have my G. Piggens, she is commonly referred to as Piggens, and Lola has evolved into the often used Lola Malola, or La-la-la-la-Looola, like the kinks sing it.

    Re: Nicknames!

    as a pair my pigs are just 'my boys'

    Swavy is fondly known as my 'baby boy' just because he is the eldest. He was my first pig ever and he will always be my baby. when Swavy does something wrong I call him by his full name, Swavy Bobby, and he actually responds to it now and stops what hes doing, but he usually goes right back to it :P Swavy actually comes when called. Hes the easiest to pick up.

    Kaeoto is just Kae. He is the 'little pig'. He doesnt respond to his name or nicknames yet. I've only had him a short while. I hope he will respond to his name as Swavy does. It makes catching them so much easier.
