"Your nicknames and why you have them."
This post would be brief. I'm feeling dreadful today, I might be coming down with a fever. I only have a few nicknames..
- Pangga - This is the nickname my Dad uses to call me. It's a short term for the Ilonggo word "Palangga" which means beloved. I'm the only girl in the family.. the pampered Daddy's girl. So I guess, I don't have to explain further why he chooses to call me that sweet nickname. ☺
- Nene - Mom and some of my closest friends choose to call me "nene". It's a typical Filipino nickname. I think, it means a kid at heart or a young girl. I love being called "nene", however almost every other girl in our neighborhood has the very same nickname. As I've said, it's a typical Filipino nickname.
- Panee - This is the nickname my two brothers use on me. It's just like the nickname "nene" but with a twist. It's kinda sweet, that they use a different nickname on me.
- Merrily - My grandma used to call me "Merrily" when I was still in grade school. Maybe because my real name is Maria Leah (yep, that's my real name). Merrily is such a cute nickname.
Yes, I have four nicknames. But I still prefered to be called by my real name. LEAH... pronounced "leyah".. with an "h". ☺
