Do you like to go by your real name, a nickname, or maybe even a username(basically a nickname...)?

My real name is Lydia, but I like going by Nalini on almost every site I go on. My mom calls me "Lyd" which drives me absolutely insane. "Lyd" and "lid" are too similar! I used to go by Lyddie, but that ended really fast. So did "Dia."

Sometimes people call me "miss Lydia," which I like. People at my church sometimes call me that.

There is almost no one that calls me by my first name, lol.

I either go by Wickum or Bonfire.

My last name is Wickum, and I don't know lol I guess people just like it lol.

MY football coach came up with my name, Bonfire. He first started calling my older brother Wildfire for some reason. and everyone else started calling him that too. Then once I entered highschool he named me little Bonfire, and I guess it stuck lol.

My friends usually call me "Chey-Chey" or jus "Chey." :lol I find it annoying if anyone else does though.
Sometimes I get called "Krueger" because people mispronounce my last name. That's always funny.

Some people call me "Brenton" when it's supposed to be "Breton." I never knew how my last name could be so hard! I guess if you really want to annoy me, you'd just have to call me "Lyd Brenton." That's a horrible name!! :o

I like "Chey Chey." It's really cute :3

I get that. My name is really spelled "Kroeger." Kind of like the supermarket. But I wouldn't think the extra "e" would make it so hard to pronounce.

And thanks. I like it, but when i have a complete stranger come up and say, "Hi, Chey-Chey!" it's a bit odd.

There is a supermarket called that? :shrug

People call me Ian, because that's my name. I don't really have a nickname, since Ian is pretty much the shortest name you can have... Ed doesn't count, since its a nickname and its really spelled Edd.

Some friends and some teachers call me Pringle, that's my last name. Not sure why they call me by my last name... but they do.

My dad calls me E because It's the first part of saying my name.

"Little Wickum..." That's not degrating at all...in Japanese, that would be chibi-Wickum. Yup. :approve

I get used to being called little, though. I mean, I'm not very tall at all (5'1) and I'm the youngest in my family.

You know how you sometimes have to name the main character in a video game, like in Zelda or whatever? I always go by Pepsi. My brother goes by injured-pelican on every site he goes on...I don't know how he came up with it...

I found out that my name can either mean noble and kind, or strife( :confused ), OR from the city of Lydia, which I found out is a very interesting place.

Yeah but the thing is that I'm not little, I'm usually taller then the people that call me little wickum, I'm 6'1.
