      Hi. My full name is Rosario Maria but I was nicknamed "Charito". In my culture, it's the standard nickname for any female named "Rosario". Other nicknames to this are "Charo", "Chato", "Cherry", "Chari"...whatever!

      I have had so many nicknames. When I was little, family, close friends and neighbors called me "Missy". When I was in grade school, we did an art project using our initials - mine are M-E-L - hence the nickname "Mel". My current nickname is "Eyes" - simply because I go by my middle name which is Eileen - the first syllable is pronounced as a long "I".

      Nicknamed 'Wayne' or 'Waynie.' My younger brothers couldn't say Laraine. My husband was wondering who my brothers were talking to when he met them for the first time. The nickname stuck and they still call me Waynie.

      My motorcycle buddies call me Kippie. It's because my screenname is bikerchick and a chick (or rather, a chicken) in Dutch is "kip". Hence the nickname. :)

      spritequeen lm 7 years ago

      I got started being called "Sprite Queen" several years ago, because of my Sprite addiction at the time. Now, many people have shortened that and just call me 'Queen'. It's AMAZING how people treat me now that the name has stuck. Kinda like ROYALTY! :-D...Ahhhh, it's GOOD to be Queen!

      I've had several including "Killer" when I played softball because I (inadvertently - yes, true) mowed someone over in a game. Also "Pooh" is a nickname of mine from Winnie the Pooh. My dad used to call me "Pony."

      BTW - Tipi is sent me here by way of the forum :-).

      I have one cool nickname... Withoutyou, lol. My friends chose it for me as I always want to do things by myself and rarely ask for help, lol and also because I love David Nilssen's tune.

      By the way, if you grow strawberries in pots, make sure that your dog doesn't like such fruits - my enjyes eating my strawberries, lol.

      I always wanted a cool nickname but never got one. My brothers would call me "Spam" just because it rhymed with Sam, but that was pretty boring. I want a cool nickname.

      Jeff this is a cool lens. There are some pretty cool nicknames and I sure get a kick out of many, some are like ... What? I got my nickname Susie when I was a God given name is Susan. One if my uncles us to sing the song Bimbo to me when I was a little girl and he would call me Bimbo. (that was special) Then living in a tip earned me the nickname Tipi the Tipigal and I thought that was a pretty cool nickname. ~ Very cool lens that made me think and have nice memories.

      Many blessing to you,
