    Oh gosh, I have a TON of nicknames my friends call me by, and almost every of them is based on my name (Raphaël),
    Some examples are: Raph, Raphy/Raphi, Raphitou, Rafou, Raphinou, Raphinoux (And there's a lot more but I'm not gonna make a full list x) )

    I get called Ty, Rooster, and Sen bc of usernames, and I'm fine with rooster but sen I've never liked bc it's just seneca, it's my grandpa's tribe, and I don't like people trying to cover it up, even if they don't realize that they are doing it.
    Ty I guess I'm okay but its literally 2/5 letters, Tyrol ain't that hard to type.
    My actual name is also 5 letters but I've never had a nickname, besides people occasionally calling me the Roman empire and Rome

    Online, I usually get called lux. I sometimes get luxury or luxray, but those feel like I'm being called by my full name for some reason lol. Oh and @Gwoomy calls me luxie which is cute :3

    My actual name is Jacqueline, so most people assume I go by Jackie (which is a tad annoying because I don't). A name as long as mine is in desperate need of shortening though lol, so I sometimes go by Jay.

    My online name is almost always a variation of Zero, but terrestrially people sometimes call me Coffee. Especially in my first year of college when I discovered caffeine and always always always had a cup of (sub-standard) coffee on my desk or in my hand (I swear my GPA would have been better if I discovered that good drug in high school). My taste has improved and my addiction has weakened, but the nickname stuck.

    Well I'm known as Hero on here, but in real life I have been called Hannah Bear, Hannah Banana or HB. I have no idea if HB stands for Hannah Banana or Head Banana. Ask my Colorguard Instructor.

    I always go with Fchick, Fchicken, or something like that online. In real life, I don’t actually have any nicknames.

    Well, I normally try to go by Arod but I’ve also had the displeasure of having to use Awesome Arod. But, now I’ve come to use Vaquero116 as a username. My current name on discord is King DeDeDe as it’s the spookiest thing I could come up with for Halloween.

    In real life, I’ve also been called Arod by people who actually give me a nickname. Though my friends just normally call me by my name and you gotta pay extra for that

    I don't have any online nicknames.
    IRL I always go by the nickname Issy, rarely by my full name. Sometimes people will call me Bella, but still not as frequently as I get called Issy.

    I don't have any nicknames any more. Throughout my school years I was called by variations of my last name for some reason I have long since forgotten, and a few people used to call me "Goldfish" because of my hair colour, but apart from that...nope. Kinda hard to abbreviate Dawn, haha. My old usernames had a ton of abbreviations though, because they were too long for people to constantly type out. xD

    I have had a couple of nicknames given to my by my siblings. My younger sister used to call me Houndour (I called her Pichu). My other nicknames are just strange pronunciations of my actual name. Like Je-nee-fur, and just plain old 'Neffur'.

    ChocoChicken is usually just Choco.

    IRL, I have one nickname, and everyone manages to misspell it.

    My usual nickname is Vapor due to my username.
    One of my friends calls me Emma (Which is not my name) because I remind her of Emma Swan from Once Upon a Time. My sister also calls me Brother as a reference to Ed and Al from Fullmetal Alchemist

    I hate nicknames. I have been called by my last name, and because I share a last name with an unrelated professional sports player, I have often been called by their first name. I tolerate the former and never respond to the latter. Online I get nicknamed Spartan, but that doesn’t really feel like a nickname.

    Ayyyy Isabellas unite! I'm the opposite of you. I've always been called Bella. For me it feels really weird if people call me Izzy/Issy.
