I have never been a fan of nicknames — take my name for example, Devan. All through school and even now I cringe when people shorten my name and call me “Dev” because I find it annoying. Same goes for my husband who knows that I am not a ‘schmoopy’ person who likes cutsey love names and I will roll my eyes every time.
The media loves ‘schmoopy’ when it comes to celebrity couples and the new thing is to give them a combined name to show just how cute they are. ::insert eye roll:: Some celebrities are even cool enough to have their own name shortened into an ‘adorkable’ nickname — to try to seem more hip? I don’t get it, but I do find it annoying.
