When future scholars write the definitive history of the internet, there will an entire chapter dedicated to The Tig, the most newsworthy defunct website (opens in new tab) of all time.

The Tig (opens in new tab), for anyone who somehow doesn't know at this point, is Meghan Markle's now-shuttered lifestyle blog (opens in new tab), and it's a treasure trove of insights into the Duchess of Sussex. In the latest unearthed relic from the blog, Express (opens in new tab) has learned that Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, had the cutest nickname for her growing up: Flower.

The revelation came in an entry published on August 4, 2016, Meghan's 35th birthday (opens in new tab). In honor of her big day, Meghan decided to turn the spotlight on herself for the site's recurring Tig Talk feature (opens in new tab) (a section in which Meghan used to interview other celebrities).

Meghan is a big fan of birthdays (opens in new tab) and of reflecting and practicing gratitude—habits she got from her mom—as she explained in the intro to her own Tig Talk.

Since the Tig Talk (opens in new tab) had a standard format, Meghan filled out her own Q&A (opens in new tab) for fans, beginning with question one: "My nickname is..."

Meghan's answer: "Meg, MM, M&M, and Flower (which my mom has called me since I was little)."

Meg, MM, and M&M are all perfectly wonderful nicknames, but "Flower" takes the cake as the cutest nickname on Meghan's list, easily. We have to wonder if Prince Harry or any of Meghan's other royal relatives (opens in new tab) (we're looking at you, Prince George and Princess Charlotte (opens in new tab)) have added some adorable nicknames of their own to the list though.
