You went through that phase as a kid where you called your parents by their first names (and this annoyed them), amirite?

Never. It's kind of disrespectful. And I get smacked in the head if I'm disrespectful.

Yeah, seriously. My dad used to go apeshit if I called him Miguel, even when I was joking around. I still don't call any adults by their first name. Ever.

I went through that phase, but I don't think it annoyed them. But I was a little kid so maybe I just didn't realize that it annoyed them.

I called them by their first names, but it didn't annoy them. In fact, I still call my father by his first name.

My parents have no problem with my calling them by their first names... though for some reason I'm more comfortable calling my mother by hers.

For a really short time hahah, I was three and couldn't understand why everyone called my dad Tommy, and he was just daddy to me. Didn't last long though.

I only call my parents by there real names to get their attention. Although I go through phases of calling them mother and father in other languages.

I just do it jokingly and my parents seem to have no problem with it.

I'm Afrikaans; we don't even call other adults by their first names. Heck we don't even say 'you' to any adults. It's disrespectful. Adult males are "0om" and adult females are "tannie", I actually feel uncomfortable talking to older people in English. In Afrikaans 'you, your' etc are replaced with what you call them. (Oom, tannie, mamma, pappa) it gets tedious I'll admit, but feels wrong otherwise.
