View Full Version : Nicknames
August 22nd, 2009, 2:44 AM
Nicknames, they can be annoying, generic, funny and a lot of other funny things.
So, do you have a nickname in real life?
Is it good, or does it drive you over the edge sometimes?
Mine's Fish, and I quite like it.
So what about the rest of you?

My nickname in real life is Lauz or Double-Glazing If I'm wearing my glasses. I don't mind. I like it. Or I get called DG for short.
August 22nd, 2009, 2:51 AM
somebody tried to call me Benny (origional nickname), but messed up and called me Bønna.
How the h*** do you get those mixed up? apparently he was trying to say two things at once.
August 22nd, 2009, 2:53 AM
I have a few nicknames, actually. I have several variations of my surname (some I mind, some I don't), and a few really annoying ones that I hate.
August 22nd, 2009, 5:48 AM
I have like, no nicknames. :[ Well, people just often shorten my real name and that's about it. Oh, and my other nickname is "you".
August 22nd, 2009, 6:14 AM
"Shawty" and "Shorty" are my most common ones. I was called "Fringy" for two months when I was 11 because I dyed my fringe blonde and it looked terrible.
August 22nd, 2009, 6:28 AM
Online, people shorten my username to Cami.
In real life my name is Kelly and it gets shortened to Kel or Kells, which I absolutely cannot stand.
Although my best friend sometimes calls me Kell0rz or Kelloggs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kellogg_Company), which I don't mind because it's her. xD She's sent parcels to me with "Kelloggs [surname]" on it before.
August 22nd, 2009, 6:31 AM
I like being called Ry-Ry irl and online. :3
August 22nd, 2009, 7:17 AM

Mizan de la Plume Kuro
August 22nd, 2009, 9:29 AM
People call me by my real name but on the rare occasion that they do call me a nickname it's:
Einstein or Professor for some strange reason...
August 22nd, 2009, 10:41 AM
Skelos Badlands (don't ask)
August 22nd, 2009, 11:06 AM
Mine's Lee, Brent or KB. They're all found within my long name.
August 22nd, 2009, 11:40 AM
Not really a nickname as such, since it is my second name, but I am called "Lucas" since one of my friends is called "Will" as well.
August 22nd, 2009, 11:47 AM
Well, I get Matt from irl. At times I have been called by my last name, and my other "fake" last name. I like them so far.
August 22nd, 2009, 12:50 PM
In real life, everyone calls me by my real name or a shortened version of it.
Online, I MAKE people call me by my nickname, though there are a select few that still call me by my real name, which is fine too XD
I'd rather not list them, since they can easily be viewed in my profile :3
August 22nd, 2009, 12:50 PM
I love'em, especially since my name sucks.
My nickname is Mophead... for obvious reasons.
August 22nd, 2009, 1:06 PM
People sometimes call me "T" or "Teejerr" IRL, but that has nothing to do with my username here. XD
August 22nd, 2009, 4:29 PM
My nickname is Giggles, because I giggle a lot.
August 22nd, 2009, 10:43 PM
Wishy. Its based off of my actua; name but I hate it.
August 22nd, 2009, 11:47 PM
Chrissy or Christie seems to be the nicknames most of my friends flow with, a few people refer me by those two nicknames online as well.
August 22nd, 2009, 11:47 PM
I don't have a nickname in real life.
I was called "Smartie" but only once xD
August 22nd, 2009, 11:55 PM

August 23rd, 2009, 12:24 AM
My nickname, well it's Hina. One of my friend always calls me this when she saw me and I'm used to this now. I liked it.
August 23rd, 2009, 12:57 AM

August 23rd, 2009, 6:54 AM

August 23rd, 2009, 8:17 AM
Adem, Adm (shorter use of name usually used by small children), and Adamski...
August 23rd, 2009, 8:39 AM
Everyone in my family calls me Tater Tot. Something about how when I came home, my grandfather was eating them... or something. I can't remember. I don't even really like them that much. I just eat them when I see them. XDD
August 23rd, 2009, 10:28 AM
Nature Boy is my nickname in real life, since Nature is my name o.o
Corvus of the Black Night
August 23rd, 2009, 10:46 AM

August 23rd, 2009, 1:22 PM
My nickname in real life is Step. o:
August 23rd, 2009, 1:46 PM
Most people call me 'Scarred Sean-o' or 'SS' due to the number of scars I have on my hands and fore arms.
August 23rd, 2009, 1:51 PM
I really don't have a nickname my friends call me. They just call me by my name.
My mom calls me Pookie, though. . >.> Ugh. And my Aunt calls me Meatball. . WTF? O.o
August 23rd, 2009, 2:42 PM
I don't have a nickname in real life, but in the six or seven weeks that I've been here, I've received three: Fruit, Hassa-Chan, and Kiwi. XD
August 23rd, 2009, 4:10 PM
No I don't have a nickname in real life.
August 23rd, 2009, 4:20 PM
My family like to repeat the first half of my name twice in order to give me a nickname- unknown to them, my ex called me that too. D: I like being called Roku online because Roxas owns, and I'm more like him than I am Axel. 83
Nicknames are fun though.
August 24th, 2009, 7:00 AM
I have two IRL nicknames that I know of...
God → I... might have decided on this one myself. Lots of people use it or at least refer to me as it. Parents included! :]
Brynn → This was my brother's nickname but somehow he started calling me the same thing to be confusing and just never stopped. XD;
With a short name like mine there aren't really any nicknames. I know "Er" (pronounced air) is one but no one's ever called me that. :/
August 24th, 2009, 7:24 AM
Klippy is my nickname IRL. 'nuff said.
August 24th, 2009, 8:56 AM
Jess, but only one ... two people actually call me that on a regular basis. Otherwise, no.
Gary, the Magic Fairy
August 24th, 2009, 8:57 AM
IRL, no. People just call me Garret. Except for a couple of people at school I didn't really know that well called me Gary, the little foreign kid who didn't speak English well called me Greg for some reason, and this lady my dad hired to help clean his bingo hall calls me Jarret, since she apparently misheard the first time I said it and she doesn't notice when I correct her. XD
Online I usually go by Kenji, though I'm using Gary a lot more often now. I don't have any other widely-used nicknames, I don't think.
August 24th, 2009, 10:57 AM
Only for a year at college I was called Elonzo by a few people, a completely random name.
At home I am sometimes called Lion by my parents.
I like having nicknames so long as they aren't Wapanese.
August 25th, 2009, 12:32 PM
My nan gets mixed up sometimes and calls me Claire [my aunts name] and now I've got used to it, and actually answer to Claire now. It's not really a nickname .. but meh~
My mum calls me Lou-lou every once in a while. It's a long story involving the midwife calling me lulabell etc~
It's a bit embarassing when she calls me that to be honest.
Online? People normally call me Snowwy/Snowweh~
August 25th, 2009, 2:29 PM
The good thing about having a long name is that people shorten it on instinct- when I introduce myself as "Giancarlo" it doesn't take long for them to call me "Gian". So that's my nickname.
Online, however, I would exceed this post's limit if I were to list all of my nicknames. I could list the most common ones, but I don't feel like~
August 25th, 2009, 9:29 PM
My real nicknames are Mike or Mikey.
At school, a lot of people call me McLovin/Fogle (or however you spell the names).
They say I look and sound like him. XD; I haven't seen the movie, but recorded it over the weekend, but forgot to watch it. I'll watch it this weekend. ;D
August 25th, 2009, 9:40 PM
My family calls me Nica... being my online nickname. And nobody else bothers. :[
August 25th, 2009, 9:44 PM
Ah, my peeps (marshmallow peeps) call me Sav. But I've had names ranging from Boobs to Lola. I'll pretty much respond to anything.
August 26th, 2009, 7:25 AM
My friends like to call me Kai as its my first name shorten and I spelt it different or it would be Ky. I also get called Shadow alot cuz it like my gaming name for everything and some of my online user names. Other than those my friend poke fun or my last name which is Easterling so I get called Easteregg or Easter bunny or even Easter basket...horrible DX
August 26th, 2009, 9:53 PM
"Styles" seems to be a popular one, given it's my last name and all. Other than that I can't think of any that have stuck. Well, there was also "Big C" but I try avoid bringing that one up :P
August 27th, 2009, 3:10 AM
Um, let's see.
I occasionally get called Willy. That's about it. And meh, I could care less. I mean most of the time I get called Will.
August 27th, 2009, 6:53 AM
My nickname is Gabby, because it's a shortened version of my name. Most people online call me that, too.
Kung Fu Quagsire!
August 27th, 2009, 7:33 AM
The only nickname I have in real life is Beth. I don't mind it, but I prefer it when people use my full name.
A couple of people online call me Aki.
August 27th, 2009, 8:58 AM
Um, let's see.
I occasionally get called Willy. That's about it. And meh, I could care less. I mean most of the time I get called Will.So, Guillaume means nothing to you? I am disgusted.
I go by many names .. Both online and offline, I am called every name under the sun. Usually it's the name of someone else - Arian is proof that happens no matter my connection with someone - or a variation of my name. Fi, Fifi, Fizzle, Chica, Sexpot*, Fi-Lite** and Will*** are popular choices. Although some choices aren't what I'd call appealing, I appreciate all my nicknames - if someone has gone to the trouble to call me something other than Fiona, then I should - and think they add spice to my life.
* Even I don't know. :[
** Stage name of Big Bang member Daesung, but reworked to fit my name.
*** Inbetweeners reference and joke.
August 28th, 2009, 4:53 PM
I don't get many nicknames. Most of them are from my mother, but I'll make a list.
-Mishy. This is the biggest nickname that I have online, with most of my friends calling me it. Infact, only my really close friends call me by my full name (with a couple exceptions). Technically, it's my username too, but only my friends use the cuter spelling.
-Shelly. My mother calls me Shelly, as done my Grandma and my friend Courtney who I've known for over eleven years. This is a really special name to me because it's used by the people who see me as really close. My mother is my mother, my Grandmother helped raise me, and I've known Courtney for years and she's like a sister. My friend Dan started calling me it, but he stopped for some reason. :/ He was like a big brother in a sense too. I really looked up to him.
-Shelly Bean/ Shelly Poodle. Only by Mom and Grandma.
-Mish. Random nickname. It's only used by random people at random times. That, or if someone is too lazy to type/say my whole name or Mishy/Michii. Har har.
-Mimi. Gummy called me this but switched to Mishy and then my full name ('cept when he's lazy).
-Myuu. It was my username on the forum I owned. Sometimes my ancient friends call me it as a mistake.
-MEE-shell. A lot of people do this and iono why XD.
-me-chee. It's used by my friends as a joke that no one knows that my username is pronounced as Mishy haha.
-Oh, and I JUST remembered Michips. yeah, get it? Chips? Michii? yeah. It works. Yay.
August 28th, 2009, 4:56 PM
I don't have a nickname. People online tend to call me Squirt but, that's only because they don't know my real name.
August 28th, 2009, 5:32 PM
My friends on PC call me Tali. Otherwise its just the usual username, I guess. I don't really have a nickname in RL, unless you count the shortened version of my name which I'm not particularly fond of. D:
August 28th, 2009, 8:31 PM
My nickname is: "Rissa" which is just lazy to me.
August 29th, 2009, 12:54 PM
My parents specifically named my brother and I so that our names could not be shorten to be used as a nickname. I would probably do the same thing, should I ever have kids.
My name is my name and I have that name for a reason. If my name was Alexander (for example), I would want to be called Alexander. Not Alex.
