DS sometimes calls DP by his real name. Mainly he calls it out when he's looking for something b/c i do that alll the time "realnaaaaame! where's my glasses/the tv remote/shoes" so DS calls out his name, palms upturned waving his arms like "where is it?" He knows my name too but 'mummy' is easier to say so i don't get my real name.

My kids have gone through stages of calling me by my given name, doesn't bother me at all, mostly it is just Mum though, I'll always answer to both! I prefer mum though...
I call my dad by his real name, as I was raised with my older 1/2 siblings for whom he was a stepfather, so all I heard in the house was his real name, and called him that ever since I could talk.

My DD used to think mummy was my real name and my friends just had it wrong, was so cute, especially when she tried to correct them.
Now she knows I am HER mummy and the only mummy she will ever have and that I love hearing the word from her mouth and it's my special title as a result she doesn't like referring to me by my real name, luckily.

My neice calls my SIL by her first name all the time, mainly because SIL works at a daycare and has my neice there too, so since the other children were calling her that, so did she and still does after 6 months of them trying to get her to call her mum again... cheeky monkey

I am called Mum or Mummy or something.
I would not be impressed if DD tried to call me something else. Call me old-fashioned and uptight, but I would find it rude and disrespectful.
I also call all my other relatives (who have titles) by those titles... my brother just calls my Aunties and Uncles by their first names (without Aunty/Uncle before it) and it just weirds me out... I find it rude.

I call my father by his first initials, but that is a reflection of how little respect I have for him.

If DS can't get my attention he calls me by my name. I don't mind it. He does it so rarely that it actually makes me giggle
