    Nic Names

    Have you been giving any Nic Names that stuck? I have a few of them. The boys at the pub sometimes call me "Rowdy" but it's one of those opposite nic names like when you call a huge person Tiny. Another one of my nic names is "Mother Hen" because I'm always telling buddies they should put a sweater on or make sure they locked their car door or other stuff like that. Cheers and happy weekend!

    I've no fucking clue what you're talking about, but the chars 'Nic Names' sure as hell remind me of Lord Namez. Courtesy of DrK or Dr. K, as he hates being called.

    I named my hamster Gorbatschow when it was still illegal.


    Does that count?

    It might count if your hamster got drunk on Russian vodka and picked fights with your cat. Cheers and happy weekend!

    Been giving or been given? Vasquez, but I gave that to myself Also IRL I've always been called by a shorter version of my real first name, so a few years back I officially changed it.

    Also I insist on calling my friend by her (maiden) last name, even after she got married and changed it. Everyone else uses her first name, but I've called her Smith* since childhood and keep doing it.

    * not her actual last name

    Nice, I almost mistook you for a man Vasquez.

    But thank you for elaborating on the illiterate's OP. No, I don't really have any nicknames as the only people in my life are my colleagues and reluctant family members. Though I used to be called emails by at least one person for a short time in high school.

    Oh god Thor, why did you evade the Alien quote? Nice way to create an elephant in the room.

    I'd like to throw nickname "Needy McGee" into the ring and see if it sticks.

    Some people call me icemann in real life. I find that kinda cool (no pun intended).

    Yeah, I get RL Pyrian a bit. After all, I've been using that handle since 1991, and frankly it's a LOT more distinctive than my given name.
