I have loads! Some of them are used so much I forget what my real name is. I’d love to know what your friends and family call you.

Mine’s a short version of my last name. I have two friends who christened me as Sheepdog when I was 18(decades ago) because of how my hair hung in my eyes. One of them still calls me that, but only when it’s just the two of us.

Gigi. Because my grandson said Gigi when he was trying to say granny.

T-Bone is what my buds call me.

“Ben,” from the shortened form of my first name, “BenG” and its homophones from high school, “Nullo” from the Interwebs (though I brought that on myself), “Cletus” from a mean-spirited workplace joke, “Muscles” whenever my manager wants me to move cases of meat.

MilkyWay's avatar

@Nullo Lol!

@Vunessuh V Dawg? That’s pretty cool.

When I was little, I had Gigi as nick. Some few people call me that, or just G. I’ve also had Fuckface, and some people call me Jizz. My ex boyfriend used to call me Noodles, after I curled my hair and he thought it looked like oriental noodles. I also had Fruitcake from this one girl who thought I was crazy, but in a harmless way. If only she knew…XD
A lot of English speaking people like to make fun of my name, and call me ’‘Gazelle’’, which annoys me to no end haha.

My friends and family call me Archie, which is a nickname I have had since I was born.
My co-workers nickname for me is Superman, though they don’t call me that often.
Oddly, a girlfriend I had once called me that as well, but for different reasons. She thought I was very square (no drinking, no drugs, no swearing). She actually meant I was Clark Kent.

@Symbeline Noodles is so cute. XD

No, but I wish I did because my name sucks and making my own up just seems douchey.
