I was curious and tried searching for an old thread, but I couldn't find anything. So do you have any nicknames? If so, are there any stories behind them?

Got it when I first tried WOW and my friend came up with "Grabbel", but I didn't like it so I came up with the wonderous Grabbal..

Nothing remotely interesting. In primary school everyone called me Harry, but that's about it. That simply derived from my last name.

These are ALL nicknames that were given to me. I never come up with them myself. I just take the ones that stick and run with them:

Ricky, Rick, Rickster, flaco (spanish for skinny), Ricky Mode (given to me by a friend, but the variations on it, like Mean/Median/Mode and Diagnostic Mode are all me) Mr. Pants, Pants, DaPantz, Secret Agent Pants, RickStallion.

Oh, and if I knew someone named "Dube", I'd call him "douche" pretty much all the time.

Sam, Sami, Sammies - all variations on my full name, used by a lot of people
Samala - given to me by my current boss
Sabamfa - one of my friends constantly calls me this
AweSam - from a former coworker
T - from "T&A". my best friend is "A"
Baby Bird - from another manager. She's "Mama Bird". long story.
Honey, Sweetie, Dollface, Baby, Dear, Darling, Wife, Love, etc - majority of my friends/coworkers are guys. and i hear all of these things far more often than i hear my actual name.

My name is Sarah, so it derivate in "saewah or sawah", you know, to do a kind english prononciation
THe midget (or dwarf), the midget/dwarf with a pancho (I don't know if there is an english word, but it's a dress, "pancho" because of a sketch), the smurf because I'm little. I forget "Dora", because of Dora the explorer, a cartoon destinate to very young children, like 3 or 4 years and you can learn your first english words, learn to count until 10 ect ect...and always because I'm little.
And the last one, belu daughter, because of my car which is blue, and the french word for -belu- is "bleu" and I don't know how, but it turned in "belu", a mix of english and french). Of course, my father is "belu father", my mother "belu mother" and even my cat is "belu cat", we are the "belu family".

EDIT = Yesterday, I get a new nickname, that's "pixel" over and over again because I'm little.

Just "Jon" or "Jono."

I was nicknamed Starfox in high school due to my disproportionally large head. It was a significant improvement over the middle school version, "Fathead."

I wish I had some better nicknames.

Don't you mean "foot"?

With my name being Jesse and all, it's tough to come up with nicknames for me. I used to have lots, but no one calls me any of them anymore.

I have only one nickname that has nothing to do with my real name, Walter (Wally, Walt, Wallace, etc.).

And that nickname is Button, it still survives today, but was popular in 2005 and 2006 when there was a phase where everyone started realizing my belly button was different.

Oh, and family calls me Trips, because I'm the third WMK in the family, to avoid confusion.

Basically it's "Baz" or "Bazza". And when I was at school occasionally I'd get "Mangers".

02-13-2007, 03:48 PM
Mike and Mikes, basically. The first because I got sick of being called "Michael," the second because I dubbed my friend KB as "Kabes," so I became "Mikes." As an elementary schooler, I was called "Dumbo," after the Disney elephant whose ears were so huge that it could create lift and fly around.

That was a really good self esteem boost.

Well there's Phil... And Stussi which came from Stussi Fufu cause Stussi Fufu was too long for a nickname.

EDIT: I forgot about Glasgow, Glasgi and Philstar. And Philler. Not as in I fill things up with what ever your sick twisted minds may come up with.
My middle name is Klarskov and the first time I introduced my self at work a guy heard Glasgow and since then... yeop.

I don't have any anymore and I can only think of I few that I've ever had.
Big K (dunno what it means, it lasted all of a couple weeks)
Douche (coming from an entirely too common mispronunciation of my last name)
There were others when I was younger but none of them stuck long enough for me to remember them.

Tizz and all its variations (Tizzje, Tizzle, Tizzie)
Maart
Maretakje (by my dad, it means 'mistletoe')
Any word ending is "aart" (by my sister...taart, haart, staart,...)

Too many weird things by Per, go ask him.

02-14-2007, 08:31 AM
oh, my mother still calls me that. she's called me that ever since I was born. I'm "dikkie"/"dikkertjedap"/"dikkiedik"/"dikkertje", my brother is "doekie". it's a d- thing.

02-14-2007, 08:40 AM

JoY

it's just like, when a baby's born & people go all; "coochiecoochiecoo" waggling their enormous fingers in front of the baby's face. my mother.. has a d- thing apparently & when my brother was born, she was all like; "doekieee" & when I was born, she was like; "dikkiedik"/"dikkertjedap" & this evoluated into "dikkie"/"dikkertje", et cetera.

Edit; when I was born, I was the skinniest little thing. also when growing up I was far from chubby. so it seriously has no meaning, except the association with those figures in children's books, either. both "doekie" & "dikkie" entirely have no meaning at all. they're just.. nicknames.

There is thin one guy in my class that gives people really anoying nicknames, insted of calling you by your first name he calls by the place you live.
So when he walks in he's all like ; RIJNSBURG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to me. I freaking hate it.

my mama calls me "wa" (because that's what my younger sisters called me when they were babies) my gramps calls me "princess" (because of my FLAXEN LOCKS) middle aged men tend to call me "blondie" and my best friend calls me Lo/ Lolo because she's black and that's just the sort of thing jiggaboos do. oh these people I met when I was building houses in nicaragua call me space pants because my ass is out of this world and this clique I developed when I was on the east coast calls me sparky for whatever reason. nicknames are stupid. my real first name is laura-star. hippy chiiiiiiiiild, hippy child.

claibia, I'm never calling you mota boy again. you've opened pandora's box, muchacho.

The only one that people seem to pick up over and over, without any connection to each other, is "teebs." And it sounds retarded. Thankfully, I don't know any of these people very well so I don't really hear it all that often.

I've also gotten Taebo, and juvenile degenerates have called me T-boner/T-bone a few times.

And Thi, pretty much.

02-14-2007, 12:48 PM

I had some foreigner friends that couldn't say Glşah (idiots) and they used to call me Rose, Rosey or Rosesomethingelse. But generally I like being called with my name. The ones who mispronounce it annoy me.

Scruffy and Lunchbox. some guy at work just started calling me Scruffy then suddenly everyone, including my managers, were calling me Scruffy... so i went with it. Lunchbox... cuz i'm fat, i guess.

Yes, so very much.

People always seem to attach nicknames to me, it's odd.

Potter - I slightly resembled Harry Potter in high school, people still call me this.
Richie - No fucking idea.
S.Tasty - Something about anal sex, I'm sure.
Seanatron - Because Megabyte decided I needed a robot nickname too.
Seangath - BFF of Dargath (aka: Jongath).
Seanzig - Bryzig and I love Danzig.
Martin Laurence - My old roommate got Will Smith, I got the shaft.
SchminkDAWG - My friends know I hate my last name.

I have too many weird nicknames by my boyfriend. Anything related to "pups" or "si" at the end, but usually really creepy things.
Other than him, I have nobody call me anything than Nina ;( Except my dad who calls me nina-i (weird Persian thing. Not very special, I guess).

I used to call you Nini sometimes! And I'm totally gonna stick to the Ninana that was in my last e-mail by the way, I like it.

I like both versions ;D
Per should count on some of your nicknames, though. They're gonna be entertaining!
