Yes, Lacy is definately better.
My first name is Adil. My friend started to call me 'Adie', pronounced like the letters A & D said in a row. So yeah, it's a variation of my actual name. And I really can't say I have any problem with it. In fact, 2 of my friends simultaneously started to call me that, but it only induced a negative response in me with one of them. The other still calls me that, and it doesn't affect me negatively at all. Like I said, the same name called by different people can change the response.
well now here's where it gets interesting..cause I get called AD all the time cause of my username- and i prefer it to my real name.
"sweetie" coming from one person can be a totally different thing than "sweetie" from the next person
That's exactly what I mean. Names are a complicated business. There's energy involved and that differs from name to name, person to person, probably even from intention to intention.
When the lady called you 'puddin', the whole sum vibration of it, that includes the vibration of the word, of her voice, charged with good intentions and positive energy, resonated so well with you that you actually went back just to feel the resonance again.
it only sounds natural or good when certain friends say it and it gives me a " this is cheesy, un-natural vibe " when other friends say it..
...Even with a neutral tone, we can sense underlying motives, intentions and feelings like joy, sadness, anger, sarcasm, confusion etc.
Words give out strong vibes, much like someone's presence.
A very dear friend gave me my first, and only, nickname. And he was the only one to use it.
He died many years ago, and I doubt that I will ever be called by that name again.
