So many people I know do this...I think it's to make them sound sophisticated.

I've never done that, but I would imagine that girls do it to, as everyone else said, make them set apart from everyone else.

This reminds me of that Friends episode where Rachel corrected one of the friends when they called her boyfriend Josh instead of Joshua. The friend asked, "Oh, does he not like to be called Josh?" Rachel said, "No, I don't like Josh." [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Just think of it as a gal trying to make you better, you all know that we men are savages and that if it was not for the gals in our lives we would be happy with 7 day underare, none shaven and stinky. so...sacrifice a full name here and there just for the sake of manhood.

they do it cause they are having a emotional bond with you, so they feel closer to you if they can call u by your full first name.

NO...that's not it. It's very much what Outlaw said. We want to feel special. We feel it forges a bond. The fact that you let us call you by your entire first name or by that cute lil pet name we give you, let's us feel special. Like we get to do something the outside world doesn't. It's a signature, it's distinct. I'd prefer to call them something noone else does. At most their family can call them that as well. Or if I dislike their first name, I call them by their last etc. Or by initials. Whatever. I don't do it often, but eventually all of my ex's has some kind of nickname I gave them. I never say full name. That smacks of them being in trouble.

This is my guess too. It make's the person sound more mature and responsible. Parent's probably do it to remind themselves that little Andy has grown up and now he's Andrew. Like I said before though, just a guess.

That is kinda wierd now that you mention it. My girlfriend is probably one of about 4 or 5 other people outside of the family who calls me Adam. Everyone else calls me Cold or Ox.
