I love silly nicknames and singsongs and rhyming… So, keeping that in mind, here is the thought process of the random way I have landed on the nicknames for my brand new, beautiful, baby girl.
Emily Nicole Buckner is called Emmy. Because of Emmy Lou Harris, I started calling her Emmy Lou.
One of Christopher’ nicknames is “Baby Bear,” so I had to keep the Bear name in the family. Therefore, Emmy Lou somehow became “Emmy Emmy Lou Lou Bear.”
“Emmy Emmy Lou Lou Bear” is a mouthful, and while we still frequently use it – it was quickly shortened to LouLee. What rhymes better with “LouLee” than “Patchouli?” So she is now called “LouLee Patchouli Oil” – OR, if we’re in a real hurry, she is simply known as “The Lou.”
