Summer #BlogChallenge Day #6: My Nickname!

--Nicknames you have & why you have them--

Today's post sort of goes back to my blog name.  I talked about why I named my blog what I did and I mentioned that Pash is my nickname.  What I didn't do was tell you how I got my nickname.  

Growing up I didn't have any nicknames.  I went by Ashley, even when there were many Ashley's around I was still just Ashley.  I can't even remember people calling me Ash or anything like that.  It wasn't until High School that things started to change.

I got new friends and in my group of friends there were four of us named Ashley.  You know it's really hard talking to people when you sit at a table with that many Ashley's!  We all started to get nick names one was Blondie, another Clover, and we got to me and no one knew what to call me.

My friend Alli!
My friend Alli one day just blurted out P'ash!  It was perfect as odd as that is.  I loved it from the start.  She came up with it because my last name starts with the letter 'P'.  I went by this name for four years.  My boyfriend didn't even know my name was Ashley for a long time (before we were dating) because my friends always called me P'ash!


  1. This reminded me of a nickname I'd forgotten about! In high school my friends called me Lish (names Alecia) but I don't remember why. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I can see Lish being a nickname for Alecia. I think there was a girl in my school who went by that!

  2. That's awesome! I had a few different friends named Alicia, so I called one by her last name and one by her middle name. To this day, I still do that, and we never hang out all together anymore.

  3. cute combination!as for me, my nickname is somewhat different from my real name and only those who know me too well knows my REAL and complete name!

  4. Cute nickname! I love the story behind it. :-)

  5. That's really cute! I had a boss named Dave, but everyone called him by his last name instead. I ended up dating him when I left the job, but never, ever called him by his last name. He still tells me I'm the only one who calls him "Dave" besides his mother!

  6. I love how she came up with it! Random, but cool.
