Do you ever give nicknames to your gliders? I have two males, Tristan and Stormy. I sometimes call Tristan "Tris" or "Trissy". Stormy was bought later, and since he was younger than Tristan I'd refer to them as "Tristan and the baby". (In my mind, they're considered step-brothers. ) Occasionally I call either of them honey or "brat" depending on the situation. Anyone else want to share?

I have 4 gliders my first pair I got last November around this time they were 12 weeks old I really enjoy them and then I got my second pair in June of this year they were 3 years old they can be difficult. The first 2 gliders are Stitch and Leroy they are the classic greys and really funny they like to curl their tales over their backs the other 2 are Crabby and shush, shush is very quiet and doesn't say much and Crabby is the one that is always voicing his opinion in more ways that one. Leroy is the adventurous(sp) one and was the first one to jump from the cage to me only he ended up on my face instead that was surprising, Stitch is the quiet one that likes to curl up in my left shirt pocket, although now he is starting to jump from the cage onto me it has only taken a year for him to do this. as for Crabby and Shush it will take a while i think to get them to trust me although they will take treats from me and then run to the back of the cage and eat it. Crabby and Shush are mosaics, they are cream colored with gray highlights and Shush has a gray under coat on his back which is easy to tell them apart lol as for the classic greys the only way i can tell them apart is one likes his tail stocked and it isn't as fluffy as Leroys well enough for now. Love the little fuzz butts

I call my two Gliders my "Buddies," or my "Little Buddies."
Gizmo is my "Evil Buddy,"
and Braylee is my "Sweet Buddy." I think you can guess why...

I sometimes call them "suggies" because I chose short names for them all,(like, Echo, Nova, Luna, Zoomy, Badger, Cocoa, Roxy, etc.) so I can't give them nicknames x3

I only have my bubbie. He sometimes goes to work with me. One customer see's I have a pocket T-shirt on and says "hey peanut", bubbie jumps out and goes right to him. I have no idea why but he does. Another customer calls him bat. Again out of my pocket right to him. Sometimes I call him monster boy. He doesn't crab or bite. He just loves everyone and the attention he gets. Of course they give him the occasional treats they know he can have.

Mostly I just call wishes cute.
He cocks his head to the side when I say it
I'm sure he thinks that's his name
or the kissy noise I make when I have a treat

I think he hates his name when my husband calls him from the pouch he always crabs I think it's the "ss" at the end
or he hates my husband Lol

Cocco's nickname is "My other girlfriend"
Amyrw Posted - Feb 06 2010 : 08:00:10 PM
I have Meika and Malila. If I am talking to both of them together I just call them "girls", like I'll say "Hey baby girls". Meika doesn't really need a nickname because it is short as it is. It is pronounced "Meeka". Malila I figure will end up being called Lila because my son is having a hard time saying her name correctly, also my boyfriend can't say her name and he ended up calling her Mila. Oh well, I know their names and thats what matters because they are my lil girls. :)

I have no nicknames individually for my gliders. They are Lucas, Cosmo, Jack, Luna and Milk Dud.

Collectively when I talk about them their nickname as a whole is "Sugar Lickers".

So everywhere we go, to the zoo, the pet store, etc. I say every animal I see looks like a Sugar Licker. My children and hubby get a kick out of it. When I go to wake them up at night instead of calling them by their names I'll say something like, "wake up my little sugar lickers" or something along that matter. I barely ever call them by their individual names anymore, they are all my "Sugar Lickers" and I love them.

Ive got two gliders, Squirrley and Buster. Ive had squirrley over a year now and i had to name him after his personality.... I call him Nut, bud, and the little bastard, its an inside joke lol. I named Buster because when i first got him, he kept nipping at my fingertips, and out of instinct i say hey you buster! So it stuck after that. Part of it was because my parents would call us kids Buster Browns when we were being smart arses lol. But Besides calling him Buster, its also Bud, sweetie, sweetheart, cuz man this man loves to cuddle!!! and i call him the cuddle monster lol!
