"Doggo."
Why add two letters and a syllable to a perfectly acceptable three-letter, one-syllable word?
Of course the guy who has chosen to refer to himself with only two letters would ask this question ;)
That actually wasn't my choice, really. When I was an infant, my parents started calling me by my initials, and it just stuck. I can't remember a time when I've not been referred to by initials rather than name.

Not that unusual.  I know someone who is often called "L.V.".

My cats have human names: Chloe,  Hailey and Sasha. I call them "the monsters" sometimes which is sarcasm as all three of them are extremely sweet and loving.

My Sasha is an almost 9 month old chocolate point Siamese kitten. She's absolutely bonkers She constantly chases the much bigger Hailey around the house pouncing on her. Sasha was really sick and malnourished when I adopted her and being close to death has caused her to be fearless. She sometimes pisses Chloe off because she likes to play and Chloe doesn't.

We've had a Sasha and a Chloe over the years.

Don’t know if anyone saw yesterday’s new Capital One ads with Samuel L. Jackson, Charles Barkley, and Spike Lee. In one of them, Barkley has a parrot he’s named Larry—Larry Bird. Naturally, the basketball player of that name then walks in with his dog—Charles Barkley.

"That sounded stupid, didn't it?"—Kolzig, to the same reporter a few seconds later.

Here are my monsters. Chloe is the black and white bicolor cat, Sasha is the chocolate point Siamese and Hailey is the gray tabby. I took this picture a few hours ago.

My brother calls his daughters' dogs (named Jace & Kovich) nerds.  He would say, "Esther (or Katherine), time to put out/let in/walk your nerd."

Ah yes, the importance of the ' apostrophe (for the possessive in this case).  I've since corrected my earlier post.

I think the first time I ever heard anyone call someone a "nerd", it was about a dog. Someone was talking about a dog and they said, "That nerd!"

Also, the first time I ever heard someone call someone a "geek" was in 5th grade, when we visited the 6th grade class at the middle school. Some kid called someone a "geek", and the home ec teacher lectured them that a "geek" was someone in a circus who bit heads off animals.

That's what Roger Ebert says, too.

Also, a freakshow, not a circus.
