I'm called 'Tommy' by my friends at school...although I'm actually a girl,hard to believe,eh? :) One day my friends and I were talking about how cute Tom Felton(the guy who plays Malfoy in the HP movies) is...I started formulating a story as to how one of my friends, who has a big crush on this guy would finally get to meet him...I can't exactly remember what happened next...but one thing led to another and the next thing I knew people had started calling me Tommy.Even now when I go out with my friends,they call me Tommy,and I have to bear the suspicious looks strangers give me...Weird,huh ? :)

Yes I had nickname in school. It is 'Sahaili' in our native language which means 'Friend'. I got this name because it is very similar to my real name. My teacher first started to call me with this name and later on I found that many of my relatives also liked to call me with this name. I am still known by this name and it is very easy to pronounce by everyone.

I've had loads of nicknames. Mainly Lou or Louish-Ann (sometimes Louish for short) from my best friend Cherie who I've known nearly all my life. Louiseey's one too for my friend Nichola (Nicholee), Kyle (Kelly) and myself..we went through a phrase of calling each other those names!

Hello Ocko!
I have always been so envious of people who were given nicknames in their youth--often endearing ones that implied a level of comaraderie and acceptance by the group giving or using the name. Of course, I realize nicknames can also be cruel, which I never envied.

For a short time, people called me "haystack", which is a derivative of my maiden name. It was more a name-calling than a nickname of endearment, so it wasn't so pleasant. It was popular for a year in elementrary school :(

In my adulthood, I was given the name of Dr. Seuss-- (my first name is Susan) which is meant to be a humorous and playful allusion to the author's books, my first name, and my profession. Much better than childhood! :)
