Bengali Friend and their Nicknames 😀

Your Bengali friend might be having a hilarious nickname or daaknaam which is enough to make you smile every time you meet them! It even maybe a very unusual nickname. It can be anything – Bulbul which is a guy’s nickname to Tutul, Pimpim, Jumbo, Laltu, Babai and what not! Most of your Bengali friends will deny that such a nickname for them even exists 😛

They are obsessed with their ‘O’s’!

They are very possessive of their O’s. It is Roshgulla and not rasgulla, it is sondesh and not sandesh and their names will always have an ‘O’ where the rest of the world thinks should be an ‘A’. They will show you their distaste when you commit the mistake of mixing an ‘O’ with an ‘A’.
