Something us Irish are very fond of is giving people nicknames.

Marissa Carter

Today on the show we spoke to Marissa Carter about Ariana Grande using Carter Beauty's gel eyeliner.

During the chat, Doireann asked the CEO about the pet names she uses for her followers.

Marissa has recently started greeting her Instagram followers with "Hello dolly mixtures".

She explained how this is a name she was called as a child and has now gone on to call her own children.

Nicknames

The chat resulted in an influx of your own nicknames and where they came from.

Some of them baffled us:

Pillow. He fell asleep in senior infants and the teacher asked if he wanted a pillow.

Donkey. I don't why but hee haw, hee haw, he always called me that! 

My friends name is Mark but everyone thinks his name is Harry

My name is Paula and my family call me Peewee

A friend who suffered from bad facial acne got the nickname "Brunch" after the ice cream bar...

My little brother had a lamb on wheels when learning to walk, he called it his Ickey Am. He was called Ickey for years. 

Growing up with five siblings all six of us had nicknames from our dad. Spiderlegs, Pickles, Compo, Tank, Wookki and Skrinker.

Kiwi short for Caoimhe

Avocado because it's the good kind of fat...

Batch...the surname is Hynes , so Heinz Beans, Batchelors Beans

Fonda

Wheezey for years in school cos my name is Louise (it rhymes) and I've got asthma
