    What nicknames do you go by? Which is your favorite? How did you get them? Which do most people call you by? And finally, what do you like to call yourself?

    Well I have 2 nicknames, not really of my choosing. My name is Andrew. There was once a time when me and some friends were at a place, and there was another Andrew with us. He was younger, and so he was coined little-andrew, or landrew, and I was big-andrew, or bandrew. I am bandrew. ty very much friends whyyy

    Another person calls me Umbrah, because I like Umbreons. Some more reasons too, but that's the primary. She uses it occasionally, not super often.

    I don't really mind either of them

    My last name, with the edition of an "S", resembles in part "Shark." and so that nickname was born. That was mostly my teachers that would call me that junior and senior year. Not much else in terms of nicknames though

    People just give me names. My name is easy, but people aren't satisfied. I've been called Baldr (son of Odin, brother of Thor), I've been called Dave (it just stuck around after a duplicate of that Cheech and Chong bit: "Dave's not here, man"), I've been called Robin (though my name is not Dick, Jason, Damian, or Tim; I don't think it even means that Robin), and I've been called Joe (for my coffee habit, a hot Cup of Joe, and it sometimes works in pickup lines). Probably a few other too, but I'm okay with whatever as long as it's not sick or wrong and that I know I'm being addressed. One person even calls me Selena and I'm like "yeah, what's up?" because I'm just that chill.

    I've never quite been nicknamed, nor has my sister - we're just referred to as: The Twins or twinnies, T1 or T2. My dad calls us 'The Chickens'. I love chickens a lot, I really do!

    I used to go by Furby quite a bit and boy there's a story behind that one. My childhood nickname happens to be my username, and there's the one everyone knows and loves, TIMMEH!

    First of all;

    I am going to call you Selena for the rest of my life. No taking it back now.

    As for my nicknames, Chris is what people usually call me (it being a shorter version of Christopher; my full name), but then there's Llama. And no, it's not because I like llamas. My surname is "Llamas", as in the plural of "Llama". It has Spanish origin so it doesn't actually mean the plural of llama, but my closest friends call me by that over my first name. There's Llama, Llamas, Mr. Llamas, Señor Llamas, and so on.

    I have a few, though it's been a while since I've been called by any of them. My first nickname, and one I have on my profile here, is Toast. I actually got it from playing Super Smash Brothers. I played with my brother and his friends, and they always beat me, so I'd go into a game joking that I was toast (as in that I was doomed). When I started getting better, though, the name Toast just kinda stuck and eventually became my battling nickname in Smash. I'm good enough to usually take second or third now, so we named third place "The Toast Award." xD

    My only other nickname was one I had with a group of friends I only knew for about a year. One day we just decided to have nicknames, and we called each other nothing but those nicknames for an entire week afterwards, much to the chagrin of my teacher's and my friend's boyfriend. What was I called for that week and sporadically for a year after? The Flying Badger. No, there's no sense to it. Yes, it was awesome.

    Ray-Ray by one of my childhood friends. We don't speak much now, so it never stuck.

    Rootbeer by my younger brother quite a few years ago. He quickly stopped after I started calling him Peewee.

    And finally, there's Smug. You can thank YouHoney for that one.

    I keep getting called Nick/Nic a lot, and I don't really have a prefered nickname (so long as you get my name right, we're good!). Before I went into my final year of secondary, there were these two acquaintances of mine who decided to give me the name 'knickers.' Why? Because they randomly looked out the window one day and saw that the then-seniors had strung a bunch of lace underwear along a clothesline that hung over an open yard in my school, haha.

    Hehe, believe it or not Blast, actually IS my nickname. I used to go by the name of Blastoise on this other website but everyone just shortened it to Blast. It stuck to me and now it feels weird to have someone call me otherwise on the internet. My irl friends gave a stupid nickname however when we were kids and they're still calling me that. The first letter of my irl name starts with a 'z' so they thought it'd be cool if they started calling me Z for some reason. It's ridiculous but they're still doing it >_>

    I have...I dunno, one or two nicknames? That relate to my real name, that is. Hannah Bananna (yes, it is spelled that way), because I liked bananas and I guess I was a bit bananas myself, hahaha. And then there's Hanners, which a good internet friend of mine gave me after I told him my real name, but he never uses it, so I don't really think it counts. (However, my grandma has called me that at least once, so that may count.)

    I've then got "Elise", which is an alternate middle name that I know through time shenanigans, and I suppose "heh" as well, but that's in another timeline.

    If you insist on calling me a girl name, you could consider calling me Stephanie. It fits with Dick and Jason and all those as Robin names that aren't mine.

    Seriously, as long as I know you're talking to me and it's note entirely stupid/offensive, then it's all cool.

    This is actually true for me as well. Many of my online friends only refer to me as Kouhai, even after knowing my real name. Kouhai is usually fitting since I am generally younger than the people I associate with, and I have a strong interest in Japanese culture. This username actually originally came from my second Japanese class, where I was placed into a higher-level class because they had nowhere else to put me. Higher-level also means there are older students, so Kouhai was my nickname there almost the entire time.

    Outside that, however, there are several nicknames I was given. Honestly too many to count or list :P Generally people will just call me by my first name, Kouhai, C2i (a previous username I had), and Senpai (used ironically). Though @[member="Naomasa"] and @[member="Sanctuary"] insist on calling me "nerd."

    My friends call me "slagroom" (whipped cream) because the German word for whipped cream is Sahne, which looks like my name (Sanne).
    Well, at least I'm tasty.

    Noa is kind of hard to nickname, but my "full internet name" is Noa Noodles so sometimes people call me Noadles or just Noodles.

    Well, my friends call me John Wall sometimes, especially when I play basketball, but mostly just J-Wall or Johnny.

    When I'm sad, sometimes my family will call me Long-John (get it... long face)
