    "Tooth" as a nickname/petname

    Hello writers

    Soo I have this rogish, sailor character that's been using the nickname "tooth" or "little tooth" to call a young character who's small and shy and overall cute. I wonder if it sounds pretty, appropriate or original.

    I don't know how it came to me to use "tooth" as a petname, I just thought it sounded rather cute and small a word in itself.

    But since I never came across such petname, I hoped to get some thoughts!
    (Other detail, the young character is always clad in white. But I only thought of that coinsidence later, soo perhaps it helps. I just hope it's not too weird.)

    Example : "Hey, tooth, need help with that?"

    Thank you for your help

    It's not too weird. It IS the sort of inconsequential detail writers will obsess over, though. LOL

    Or you could use names such as fang or molar

    fang and molar sound too rough for a character that is small and soft-looking :/

    'Tooth' would probably be okay, but do remember to capitalise the first letter even if it's just a nickname.

    I have problems with 'tooth' due to up-bringing where I say 'teath' rather than the usual 'twothe.' It's the minorest [sp] of flaws in my perfection.

    As to nick-names? I had a disagreement with a drongo on another 'place.'

    His position was that a muscular chap would be called 'Muscles Johnson' for example, whereas real-life, I said, would have him known as 'Matchstick Johnson.' Just saying, that is how it works. He wouldn't accept my 'wisdom.'

    I'm glad it's a comprehensible thing then! and yes, you're right, Must not forget to capitalise!
