I got the nickname "Stalex" in high school. Even though my first name is actually Stephen, I've always gone by my middle name Alex since my dad's name is also Stephen. I moved before my freshman year of high school so I was the new kid and people were a bit confused by that and the nickname was a fun homage to that and it stuck until we graduated.

    My name is Emily, so I get called Emmy and Em (eyy). My mom sometimes calls me Emo (EE-mo), playing off my name and melancholy demeanor. :giggle: My dad has always called me Pup, which is adorable and so important to me.
    A funnier one is...Small Cheese. :tongue-poke: Basically, my mom was ordering a pizza over the phone, and I heard her clarify, 'yes, small cheese'. After she hung up, I joked that that should be my new nickname, and it actually stuck! :giggle: I do like my cheese...

    Shorty, Short One, Midget, Midgey, Fun Size.

    They all have to do with the fact that I'm short and won't grow anymore. xD

    high school delivered the affectionate nickname of BFG, where the f stood for a different word entirely lmao
    nothing empowers a high schooler more than finding new ways to apply slurs lmaooooo

    i miss that name

    Soap / Soapy - Came from an old e-mail I made when I was in Year 3. Some of my online friends call me this a lot, and maybe like 2 - 3 friends in real life? There's another nickname that comes from the 2nd part of the e-mail but it involves my last name - people call me that a lot too. :D

    Greg - Was dared to call myself Greg (Greg the First specifically) for a Starbucks order for a free drink, did it and now get called Greg sometimes by certain friends.

    Dopey - literally one person calls me this and I forgot why, nothing to do with drugs though

    Young Potato - my sister started calling me this and she can't stop its been like 4 years... she says I am a potato. Fair enough

    Fifi - My mum has called me this my entire life semi-frequently! I like it.

    Those are the main ones that don't use my last name!

    Fellow T-Bone reporting for duty orz

    My mom, uncle, and sister’s used to call me that growing up. Also Ty, T, TyTy...and that’s it, I think.

    I’ve really only ever been called “Jo”. Which is just a shortened version of my real name.

      My nickname has become Go Away. People frequently call me that, as well as Urgh, Stop That and Aaaaaaaaarghhhh. It used to be Retard so I'm regarding this as a bit of a promotion, really.

        Some call me "Alce", which is basically moose in Portuguese. It's probably because it resembles my name a bit.

        小女 / 小女兒 - "little girl" in Chinese
        Pretty straightforward, everyone in my family called me this when I was a little girl. Over the years it's been shortened to just 女 ("girl") sometimes

        Mouse / mousey / stupid mouse stop eating my cereal
        My brother likes to give people animal nicknames based on characteristics, and he says I'm small but I eat everything so I'm a mouse

        Karoon
        2 years ago, my friends and I met a Japanese exchange student who had a bit of an accent - he called my friend Nicole "Neecole", and we kind of adopted his accent and just applied it to other names, and I became Karoon (that's not even how he said my name but my other friends just like stretching out vowels now)

        Well, my real name is Kimberly. Family usually calls me by my real name. Anyone else often calls me Kimi instead, which I prefer over my real name now more than anything else. I'm not Japanese either. I didn't really know it was at the time, and I mainly just liked how it was spelled. I wanted something that was unique. Originally, I came across the spelling after seeing Kimi Finster from the Rugrats. See, my mom used to hate people calling me that, even my grandfather when he was alive. However, someone told her that she should let people call me that as a memory of him, so she did. :3

        Other nicknames I've been called are Adorbz, which is fine since not everyone knows I go by Kimi. ^^;

        I have quite a few different nicknames. Interestingly, for every stage in my life a different one is prominent.

        I've never really had a nickname whereas everyone else in my friendship group back in Liverpool have all had loads. It's actually funny when we talk about it because they then 'try' to give me a nickname and then it never even sticks for 10 minutes haha. No one in my friendship circle here in Guangzhou really does nicknames and it's never really been a thing in the family either, never got one at uni or when travelling around with people in my early 20s. I've always just been John. Even my username here: 'Yue Han' (约翰) means John haha.

        In the internet I've been called Michael Bay, Baygel, and Bae. Irl I've people called me Vicky, Shortstop, and Shorty (basically similar to Caite-chan, haha). My mom also gave me a couple Khmer nicknames, one of which named after a nice smelling flower.

        Brendino was a nickname of mine when I was younger, but except for online, no one really uses it for me any more. The only nickname that people call me by is B, which has been catching on at work for the last... month and a half, or so? One of the other managers I work with has been calling me that for years since I was one of his stock boys at another location, but it never really caught on except for one or two other people. Now, everyone seems to have given up on the rest of my name, so I guess I'm just B now.

          For years people have shortened my name to "Em". I went by "Emma" for years, too, as that is what my ex preferred. I dropped that a few years ago when we moved on, but I don't bite anyone's head off when they still slip up and use that name. lol

          In high school I got called "bassoon" because I was obsessed with the instrument. lol
