What shall I call you? (No seriously, tell me!)

I've got a little favor to ask of you today!

The members of this little Nouveau Cheap community are looooong overdue for a cute nickname, don't ya think? Until now, I've referred to you, the best readers on the planet, as "my lovelies" which is a sweet term of endearment to be sure, but I want something more...something cuter...something catchy and unique.

So back in the beginning of December, I asked those of you who follow me on Facebook for some ideas, and you did NOT disappoint! In fact, you came up with so many awesome names that I decided to take the most popular suggestions and put them to a vote, here on the blog.

If you look to your right, you'll see that I've created a poll on the sidebar. I'll leave it open for a few weeks because I want YOU to decide what your nickname shall be, forever more! So pretty please with a cherry on top cast your vote. And thank you SO much to everyone who contributed ideas!

PS: some of the nicknames are self-explanatory,  but some need a little explanation so here we go:

Cheeps is a play on "peeps"

Neeps is a combination of "nouveau" and "peeps" but it's also a type of turnip (cute, huh?)

Cheapeeps is a combination of "cheap" and "peeps"


  1. Cheeps. Cheepskates for more formal usage? XP

  2. I like Cheeps! I also really like Cheepies :)

  3. I can't think of anything >.< Nuvies? Nuvi's? No idea!

    1. Oh Sarah, I'm sorry if you misunderstood, but I'm actually not taking submissions anymore. I've narrowed it down to just the choices in the poll (see right-hand sidebar). But thank you! :D

    2. Crap sorry!!! In that case Neeps!

  4. I voted for Nouvettes, it sounds so cute.

    1. I'm with you. I don't want to be a chicken (cheeps) or a vegetable (neeps)!

  5. Neeps, definitely. Cheeps would be my second choice.

  6. I really like Nouvettes and in fact, just voted for it. Those other names just don't roll off the tongue right. :)

  7. Nouvettes is way cute! I think Cheeps even if my phone does keep trying to change it to cheese.

  8. I'll go for Cheeps. It's short and sweet.

  9. Neeps is a little too reminiscent of nips for me. :-) I like Nouvettes!

  10. i like Cheeps. it's short, it's cute, and it totally describes us. :)

    1. Nouvettes, for sure.
      Or Nouvellas.

      The 'cheep' like ones sound the same as saying "cheap". Which when used to describe a person is usually not an endearing term. Lol! "Hey cheap ladies!" Nahhh!

      The 'Neep' like ones sound like "nips". "Hey nips! Been a chilly dec., eh?" Nahhh!

      Also, Nouvettes is classy, feminine, cute, yet adult at the same time. Nouvettes actually sound like a group of sassy women! Def got y vote!

      It's really fun how u made this post interactive, and really involved us (hopefully) Nouvettes in the process!!


  12. 'Round here 'neeps is a slang term for, um, *ahem when its cold and your bra is too thin -or just when its cold out we say: "It's freakin' Neeps out man!" So I'm not sure how I feel bout that one (I can't get that image outa my head! lol) :) I liked the nouvies suggestion! So I'll vote Nouvettes or Nouvellas I Spose!
