!! OMG, Reddit has begun suggesting alternatives to the term ‘daddy’ !!

Tired of the trend of calling anyone over 28 ‘daddy’ just because they grew some facial hair or gained 2 pounds? Well Reddit is too – and they’ve called for suggestions on what guys might use next instead of the now-common term daddy. Check out some of their suggestions after the jump! Do you agree, OMG? Do will you keep your ‘daddy’!?

“My king.”

“My liege!”


“Your grace!”

“My prime minister?”

“My ex was very big on using ‘sir’ publicly and privately. It was an expression of respect, admiration, and, in intimate moments, of lust much more appropriate than ‘daddy.’”

“My elected representative of the people.”

“Me hearty! (‘Arr, whose ass be this?’ ‘(Gasp!) Yours, me hearty!’)”

“Have fun with it. ‘Daddy’ gives you the heebie-jeebies? Try out ‘sir’ or ‘mister.’ Formality can be fun. ‘Captain’ is a personal favorite, though I guess ‘corporal’ or ‘sergeant’ might be more popular with the pedestrian crowd. ‘Father’ could have some mileage on it, and be sure to have him call you ‘son’ just to keep it creepy. And if all others fail, you can’t go wrong with the ‘comrade,’ or even the basic ‘bruh.’ Honorable mentions are ‘chum’ and ‘pal.’”

“Paternal figure.”



“Plough commander.”

“Commander BallsDeep.”



“English ain’t my first language, so I’m gonna go with ‘big guy.’ Just don’t say too often, or it starts sounding weird.”

“Buddy, bucko, ol’ chap, mate, pal, fella.”

“Captain, sport, champ, gov’ner.”

“Papi, chef, master chief, sergeant, Lrrr, ruler of the planet Omicron Persei 8. The possibilities are endless if you have some imagination.”

“If you are a Stranger Things fan, you can call him ‘papa.’”

“You can try ‘mommy.’”

  1. I would add an O. Daddy O.

  2. I don’t believe that if a man grows facial hair (or chest hair) that makes him a “daddy”.
