Kumusta! Ang palayaw ko ay Dodong. My partner is Filipino and I spend a lot of time with her family here in Toronto. I'm ready to start learning the language seriously so I can get closer with her folks. Ingat kayo!

I see you fixed the typo in the post title. ; )
 
Dodong is a Bisayan nick name for sure. In case you're wondering, toto / totoy (shortened to "tô") is the Tagalog version. My neighbor's palayaw is toto and I never feel quite right adressing a man ten years my senior as "boy".
 
The short form for dodong is often just "dong".

I never feel right addressing a man ten years my senior as "dong" either. ; )
