My grandfather's nick name is Chotjiok. He died many years ago and he was a very nice man. He had eight wives. He never fought with them. He taught us to be independent for our selves. We are now call our children with his name as his remembering.

I wanted a name that when all my grandkids were together,
I was called the same name by all. There's no confusion
about who Cookie is. Plus, they just might think of me at
snacktime! My mom was "Buggy" to my kids and it was
so fun!
- Terry (Marion, IA)
The first grand child came up with this because she got o'pop the name we were going to use mixed up and called him CoolPop and it has always stuck. We love it cause it fits his personality.
