I named one of my dogs Dexter Morgan Wymore Sadowski. And I realized today that I seldom call him Dexter. In fact I only refer to him by his formal name when I introduce him. Here’s what I generally say:

ImageBuddy!

Buddy boy!

Big Boy!

Buster Brown!

Dookie Howser! (when he poops in the house)

My Buddy Bear!

Dexie!

Is this normal? Do people do this with their human kids?
