Meet Ato and Ine (Say Who???)

Does anyone in the Philippines still earn the nickname “Ato” or “Ine”? I guess not anymore. I know a lot of people nicknamed “Totoy”, “Nene”, or “Boy”.  Will these nicknames soon be history? The same applies with first names. A long time ago, women were named Liwayway, Marikit, Dalisay, Luningning while men were Bayani, Dakila, Tagumpay. Then the era came when women were named Maria and men were either Jose or Juan. These days you can rarely find babies named as such except for a few who were given Spanish names like Juan Carlos Miguel or Maria Victoria Concepcion. Nowadays, babies are named after famous movie stars and their kids. A lot of kids are named Ralph, Michael, Nicole and nicknamed KC, PJ, Kim. Where is Ato and Ine?

How do we even address our parents these days? Gone are the days when parents were called Ina/Ama, Inay/Itay, Inang/Amang. Some still call their parents Nanay/Tatay. These days, parents are known to be Mommy/Daddy or Mama/Papa. Aunts and uncles were known to be Nana/Tata or Tiyang/Tiyong but now they are Tita/Tito.
