Title: Pet Names for Believers
Post by: RedFlower26 on May 19, 2012, 03:21:17 am
Hi!

What pet names do your Parents/Beloveds give you when you speak with Them? For example, Anubis calls me "Little Dove" sometimes when I speak with Him. It's a joyful experience! Makes me purr every time! :D

I've just recently come back to Kemeticism, so that's all that I've experienced so far.

Mm, no pet names here really.

Probably has to do with hating pet names from anyone that's not my partners, and even then, accepting only a *very* small amount of them without taking insult though. ~.~

Sometimes they still call me Wind Rider, which has been one of my spiritual names since I was twelve, and one I used on the forums here before I became a shemsu.

I usually get "Child" from Mom, and Sekhmet-Hethert, and "Kiddo" from Wepwawet and Heru-wer. :)

I always get called "little one". It strikes me funny every time. I'm not exactly small or little by any means.

I get Daughter or child from Aset and kiddo from Wepwawet.

That's interesting angle to look at it - I wouldn't think of words expressing relationship like kiddo nor spiritual names really as 'pet names'.
 
Didn't occur to me, now I'm kind of facepalming with 'arrrrh, if *that*'s what is meant, that'd be a long history ~.~'

I've gotten all sorts of affectionate names from the gods. "Child" is common, and "little one". Also, "my Sobeq".

Mother calls me "My kitten" and "little one" a lot. Yinepu calls me "little hacker" from Astral projections involving swords (long story). Heru-wer has called me "little Flame" on occasion, though He sticks to Nebit.
And I just realized They all call me little... lol. Which is funny since I'm not exactly small.

LOL! I commonly get "little one" as well! It's so neat to share the same experiences with people! :)

I usually get my feelings as impulses and less as words, although this is something I might ask my Father about. I often have trouble finding words to explain the way I feel, but I suppose my Father knows this and cuts out the words and just goes straight to the feelings. I kinda get the feeling though that He would say something like "Well, you work better with feelings than with words, so I never really thought a name was needed. My relationship with you feels sorta like *this*" [insert interesting feeling here].

So I guess I'd say my pet name is "Warm-Hugs-and-Calm-Silence" with a hint of protective energies thrown in.

I've also gotten "Baby Girl" from Yinepu, although He doesn't feel like a Parent...

I get 'my daughter' from Yinepu, followed closely by a sensation of being claimed.  Sekhmet, Bast-Mut, and Khnum rarely call me anything but Niti.

I have gotten alot, Little one, my Child, Beloved Little One, Neitkerty. It seems to depend on their moods. Anpu usually calls me Honored One. Nebet-Het calls me loving child. Honestly, I think so of it dpends on how we interact with each of the Gods.
Just thinking out loud. :)

I get called 'Tadpole' off and on, and never by my Mother.
Usually if I get called 'Tadpole' it's from Heru-wer or Djheuty, and we're all sharing a laugh.

A lot of the Netjeru refer to me as, "My Child." Kind of like a spin on one calling an elder a grandparent out of fondness even if they aren't.

That's awesome!  

My username in most places is "liondaughter", which is something Set called me once.  

I think Heru-wer's called me "Kid".  I'm not sure what Mother's called me.  It's more of an emotional impression than anything else.  Same with Hethert, come to think of it.  

Senebty,

Hethert calls me "girl" a lot. Or "sweetie." And combos of those.

Set calls me "child" or "girl" mostly - when He's not just glaring at me, because I know what I did wrong, and He knows I know. xD

Set has on occasion in the past referred to me as "Princess," in addition to "Sarai" and "Sarrat," which are Hebrew and Neo-Assyrian terms (respectively) used when referring to women of certain rank. They both sound similar to my given name, Sarah, which as we all know is derived from the Hebrew term.

In retrospect, I don't think His calling me such things was intended to be positive, more often than not. Not unloving, but reproachful to some degree. On at least one occasion, though, I'm sure Set called me "Daddy's little princess" out of overwhelming love and pride, and not facetiousness.

I just got a mental picture of Heru-Wer dressed like an old school gangster in a pinstripe suit and fedora.

Hmm. I mostly don't get pet names from Netjeru, but Shu called me "Wind Drinker" when I was first getting to know Him, and Nut has called me "Star Singer."
