Change of Name

The Little One will henceforth be known as Puttachi.

"Puttachi" in Kannada essentially means the same as "The Little One". "Putta" means "Little", and "Achi" is something that is added out of love. And since this is what I usually call her in real life, it makes a lot more sense to use it here too. Anyway, "The Little One" was getting cumbersome, and many of you were asking for a nickname too, so here it is.

Well, I had never intended to blog about my baby, so I hadn't bothered to think up a nice nickname for her... but as it turns out, I can't stop blogging about her (heh heh)... so I thought it was time for a new name. Better late than never, what say?

Puttachi is just perfect! Sweet name for sweet baby!

But please make sure you discard the name once she is old enough, or else she'll never forgive you for it. :-)

I have twenty year old cousins who are still called puttu, putti or puttama and they hate it but the names just won't go away!

Thank you, all! And Devaki, no, I call her by her real name.... Puttachi is just one of the things I call her when I am feeling particularly cuddly-wuddly :D I know that trend.. I know old people called Paapu, Puttanna, etc :D
