Nicknames...

Postby mdx_stargoliath » Wed May 20, 2009 4:36 pm UTC

Well i think everyone has grown up with a fair share of nick names in thier time and I'm just curious what were yours from when you were younger or even till now. Sometimes they were of endearment and others were went to shame you but you adopted it anyway cause hell it was cool to have one. Hey even if you w ant provide some background.

Here are a few

Cryptlord (mainly cause thats my GT on Live and they refuse to call me by my real name even outside of XB live)

Sunshine (this one was particularly odd, thank you Jordan)

Bug (dont know where it came from but anything was better then what they were calling me before "Bone Daddy". What the hell?!)

Chipmunk/Squirel (I used to have some bad buck teeth growing up and one time we were bowling and I missed the pins completely and my friend totally me "Stop chewing the bowling balls chipmunk and htey may go somewhere)

Doctor Dockins (Yes, I am a certified M.D. with a P.H...oh whatever. My friend Bruce thought my last name was cool and put doctor in front of it.)

...thats just to name a few.
Your life is your own and you are not governed by a predetermined destiny.

I'm 6'2", 90kg, and have gained a reputation for being (assuming whoever I'm talking to isn't annoying) unerringly nice and polite. As such, I have recently gained the nickname BFG, as in Roald Dahl's book about the Big Friendly Giant. I was quite flattered.

Aside from the usual Nick, Nick-o, etc., etc, I've had;

"Nobby" by one of my uncles and, as a result, my cousins. It stems from my initials spelling N.O'B.

"Nicolalalas" by my brother and Dad, and I have no idea how it started but they've been calling me it for months now, as well as calling one of my sister's friends Nicolalala. It was confusing before, it's even more so now.

"Chocolat" by one of my French aunties; Her name is Francoise, which sounds similar to "framboise" (raspberry) and when I was little I couldn't tell the difference. As a result, she started calling me "Chocolat", which sounds similar to Nicolas in French.

"Big-Bum Nick" by some friends from my sixth form. Basically there were two other Nicks we hung about with, and things got confusing until one day, when I was wearing skinny jeans and a tight tee-shirt, it was pointed out that as skinny as I am, I actually have quite a huge arse. I didn't mind because with that particular group of people, our general humour was based on taking the piss out of each other.

Yeah, there's quite a few more (I have a MASSIVE family, everyone has nicknames for each other) but these are the main ones and my favorites.
Spelling and grammar can go screw themselves.

Till I was about eleven I had the nickname Scatti when I was in school (started by my teacher) and Tinkerbell at Brownies (my sixer thought that I was little and cute like a fairy - I liked this one).

My latest one was Kyberely but it didn't last long.

My nickname is just my last name, and sometimes I get called by a diminuitive of my first name.

When my dad was growing up, he, his brothers and friends were often called their first name spelled backwards (well, they still are).

In high school, my nickname amongst my close friends was Sweet Pea. It was an excellent nickname. In college, my dorm mates called me Squirrely based upon my skinny build and constantly climbing things and fleeing danger I managed to stumble in to.
This was a terrible accident.

The most common nickname I've had is Bill. My surname is Oddy, which is pronounced the same as Oddie and there's a famous naturalist called Bill Oddie in the UK. It's an unusual enough name that that's normally the only Oddy/Oddie that people have ever heard of. Interestingly my sister has the same nickname, but that's more easily justified because it's a bit like a contraction of her real name.

With a surname like Oddy, though, that's frequently been the theme for nicknames. My school latin teacher used to call me Noddy, and I've had the nickname 'Odd' a lot, which is actually quite fitting... my best friend from secondary (high) school in my first year was a guy with the surname 'Strange' (seriously!). We were known as Odd & Strange - it sounded like some comedy duo. :lol:

I have a new nickname, as of last month. Wasn't too sure it would stick, but apparently it has.

For the last 7 years I have been know and regularly introduced by people other than me as Stiggy, i'm still not entirely sure where it came from but it looks like it's hear to stay.
Annoyingly every time someone introduces me with "this is Stiggy" the person who's just met me ALWAYS responds with "oh, like Stig of the Dump", I mean, do I just remind people of a rubbish dump or something??
I like it though, and i'm slightly scared that starting university in a few months I run the risk of it not carrying over, which will be weird. Peoples advice, is it acceptable to introduce yourself to new people using your nickname, or do you have to have someone else be the first to use it?

Stiggy seems to have lot's of good derivatives though. Stig, Stigz, Stiggles, Mr Stigs, Captain Stigz, Stigglypuff, Stiggleworth, Stigworth, El Stig, etc...

Meh, the only nicknames I've had are related to my last name. Burns or Burnsie usually. I don't really like them, but you can't get rid of them.

Seriously though, if people always make the link to stig of the dump why do I never get "oh like top gear".
When once a group of four of us were deciding which Top Gear presenter we were most like it was decided I was "obviously" James May, after the other two were allocated as well we struggled for someone for the fourth to be. After a while I say "Oh, what about The Stig, I guess you'd be him."

Shortened versions of first and last names: Si, Sim, Emmo.
My brother's friends used to call me Titch because (shock) I was shorter than kids three years older than me.
But they mostly faded from use around secondary school.
Simone is -barely- a nickname (it is my first name plus my last initial) but it differentiates between me and the other Simon everyone seems to know. I hated it at first, but it grew on me.
Timelord is perhaps closer to a nickname, but not a huge number of people call me that. It is my 'pub title', bequeathed unto me by Lady Zozwold of Norfolkshire. I was attempting to explain causal loops at the time.
I mostly lurk. Hello.

"Moosiecow", "Cow", "The Cow", or if you feel particularly close, "Moosie". Very few people call me Mark. My wife, then my girlfriend, gave me this name and it has stuck for almost 30 years.

Freckles - obvious where that's from
Geek gurl - my boss will call me this

Got a nick sticking to me from the net but I don't feel like sharing that one. But basically everyone who isn't my family calls me by it.

Shorty, pipsqueak, "småen" and Little Bigmouth also have shown up over the years.

And "the Cow" or "the milking cow" also followed me for a while, really hated those.

Apart from the standard derivatives of my real name, people online (xkcd is an exception) know me as homesteil.

It came from my old baseball-coach who was always reminded of "Homestyle Cooking" some soul-food cooking show iirc. (bonus irony points for me being the whitest guy on the team) So he just tacked on the spelling of my last name to home and et-voila my new internet pseudonym was created.

I've been Trouble, Peaches, FiddyFee, and Fey or Fé. I've been called Holly, Heidi and Hope, but mostly by people who are too lazy to remember my real name. Those who try to pun my name, which happens to be a noun, generally find themselves on my bad side and generally never do it again - or I no longer associate with them so I don't know if they do it again.
