As the story goes...
My future wife "Susie" is very attached to her baby niece. Her niece would refer to her as Choo-Chi (no relation to you) rather than Susie. The "Chuchi" name caught on with her family and stuck, and I have shortened it further to Chooch.
I think a CHOOCHOO explanation is in order now.
