What’s in a nickname?

Blue gingham with stripe

I often get asked to personalise towels with people’s nicknames. Let’s face it lots of us are given funny names at some point in our lives – we may even have more than one!!

At nine I was christened ‘Hammy’ and it stuck well in to my twenties. It makes me cringe if someone yells it across the street!

Here are some samples of ones I have done in the last couple of weeks.


Pink gingham

When I personalise a towel I know it brings a smile to the recipient’s face.

    Mine, believe it or not, is “Sputty” after the first Sputnik went into Space – loved it and haven’t heard it in a very long time. Takes me right back to my youth!

    Hi Jane

    Lovely blog post!

    Mine is Cookie – at least that’s what my husband calls me. (From my maiden name) A friend used to call me Spud. No idea why!
