Dummy/Dum or Nuk Nuk
For some reason my Hungarian grandma always called it a "shnooly"...LOL. So that's what our whole family called them. But, if I didn't call it that, I would call it a pacifier or a paci but that's probably because I'm Canadian. Since coming here I call it a dummy.
Dum dum here
One family I worked for called them binkies. Dad was Welsh/English and mum South African via America, so I really don't know what the heritage of that word is! Anyone heard of that one or know where it's from?
My grandad calls it a pipe
We call it the ghost nipple.
Dummy and when I was living in America my friends would refer to them as a 'Binkie'.
