Hi, Im Sean and im a new member. I got into Little Space about a couple of months ago but I go by S instead of Sean and when I am in Little Space, I refer to Big me as Sean sean. Does anyone else do this? Im asking because I have depression and i dont know if this means i have a split personality. Thank you

I know of a few people who use different names. Not me personally, but it does happen.

 

Depression and DID are two different psychiatric disorders. I'm not a medical professional, but I think DID is a more complicated diagnosis. Plus it's not nearly as common as depression. If you have concerns, talk to a mental health professional.

From my experience and interactions, there is a lot of separations that happen. Not just your name. Some people don't like to mix sexual contact with little space, some keep a distinct divide between public and non-public spaces, and some don't mix names. I personally prefer pet names. A lot of people will go to their little space to be outside themselves... hence why you are "going" to your little space. A different name makes this easier. Feel free to friend me lil man. Would be happy to help in any way I can.

I don’t go by my name while on little space, I do enjoy being called pet names though. But there are people who do use a different name in their little space and it’s ok.

 

And as aphroditelaughs said, depression and DID are two separate and very different disorders. If you have any doubts or think you might have it, you should definitely talk with a mental health professional.

(I am not a mental health professional.)

 

My guess would be that if using a different name in little space is the only thing that's troubling you, then you don't need to worry! It's very normal to have different names in different situations, if you think about it you might be called a more formal version of your name at work (or by teachers), and a nickname by your friends, and your mum might call you something like a pet name, etc.  

 

If you have other reasons for wondering about a "split personality" then it might be sensible to visit a mental health professional for a chat. Even just to reassure yourself.

 

And have fun being little :)

Papa and I have nicknames both inside and outside of our cg/l sides.  Kinda like this (italicized are main names):

Real Names

Me-Katie

Him-Jacob

Nicknames

Me-Kitty, Sweetie, Dear, Sweetheart, Cutie

Him-Bear, Honey, Sweetheart

Cg/l names

Me-Kitten, Cutie, Babygirl, Princess

Him-Papa

 

We usually go by the nicknames, but also sometimes our real names.  I sometimes wonder if I also have DID, but that isn't super important to me to figure out.  When I'm little, it just helps to tell the difference when he can call me kitten and refer to me as kitten, rather than kitty or Katie.  He also recently started calling me Princess and Babygirl more often.

I don't go by my real name in little space, it helps me differentiate between headspaces. That and I have been called a ton of nicknames.

Exactly! 

Especially when we move fluidly between roles of adult/little (adult/Daddy) and it can change from moment to moment.  It's impossible to expect both parties will always be in the same mindset, especially for example if it's a text conversation rambling over a few hours.  

Something as simple as a name change can help each person know where the other one "is" at that moment.

Yes, totally!  When I'm little, I'll usually just tell him I'm little, or ask for papa, and then he knows.  After that, we're both good until we can both tell where my mindspace is at.

For me it started because my real name is really rare and only one other person in my country has it. So giving out my first name and location was basically handing over everything about me as that would be enough to find me any where online. 

 

So i picked Fleur after a fictional character I love and then it just stuck. I feel more comfortable now 'being' Fleur in little space - not that she is a character. It is just like a petname that only people who know this side of me knows. It makes it way more intimate and helps me distance myself from big me's problems and obligations. I hope that makes sense. I ramble a lot!

I go by my real name when I am Big or in middlespace but when I am little I go by the nickname Dj which are my initials. Also, split personalities, or Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), is a highly complicated diagnosis that isn't even close to the same thing as depression. Often times DID patients will not know they have the disorder or they will be in denial of such. It is very hard to diagnose and is also very rare and usually linked to a childhood/early infancy ongoing trauma. I did a thesis on DID a while back and delivered 2 speeches on it. I've done my research  :lol:

I use Emi instead of my full first name, Emerson, because it makes me feel more little. It's not another personality, just a change in preference.

We typically call eachother by nicknames


 


For him: 


Daddy


Dada


Butthead


Dino


Daddysaur


Sir


 


For me:


Babygirl


Angel


Princess


Babysaur


Baba


Dolly


 


It's actually an insult to be called our real names tbh...


 


One day he called me my real name and I was like ""OH NO YOU DIDN'T?! THAT'S NOT MY NAME! MY NAME IS PRINCESS!" ... I mean I was in trouble but.... don't dethrone me. :p


 


It doesn't mean you have split personality, it just means you have a preference - I have an online alias that I go by rather than my real-real name. Just because I wanted a change and to almost separate myself from my little self as it makes it easier to manage personally. "Little Ve" is my little self, "Venus/Ve" is my big self ^_^

usually my daddy almost never calls me by my name in little space. he usually calls me baby or pet names. he told me himself a way that i can tell if he's in daddy head space is if he starts referring to me as baby. like, "baby need attentions?" and stuff like that.

I have a different name for my little side, i also have different names for my other sides too depending on what i need or want. My different sides look, talk and act completely differently but like someone else said, alter egos (i like that). Its more common than you think. I know a few people who do it.
