    If you have one what is it? How did you get it?
    My is "thigh high chick", and I got it my first week at work as an assistant manager. I thought I was ordering individual pairs of thigh high stockings but actually was ordering cases of them. Imagine our surprise when the truck showed up. Every time I went to a meeting after that people would say "oh your that thigh high chick". And its stuck! Now I kinda like it. What's your story?

      And I thought it was ur so little.

      In college a friend nicknamed me Gilgamesh and it just stuck. Not sure why he applied it to me, but it still lives on. People still call me that on occasion. An interesting story, though.

      Winter actually.

      A military ex-boyfriend gave it to me as my "code" name, since my last name starts with a W.  He said it was because it's so hard to make me lose my cool. We went our separate ways eventually but the name stuck and I've always rather liked it.

      Mine is Dark Angel  or D.A.  It sums up my attitude.  I got it from someone a while back.  This person gave me "Angel" because she caught me giving a homeless person my coat and shirt one winter.  She gave me the name "Dark" because of something I had supposedly done to an abuser.

      I have a couple of nicknames

      Years ago while working in a local supermarket I had the nickname Johny Bravo due to spikey blonde hair and the physique of a body builder (i've slimmed down since)

      My family call me Cipollini after Mario Cipollini the former cyclists who was a sprinter as I always used to sprint off from my dad when we were on bike rides together. I used to say 'Bye dad!' and just ride off.

    I haven't had a nickname since school when I was called 'Bond' after James Bond, although I still have no idea why.

    I had a nickname as a teen and young adult which was changed three times (shortened) and ended up being Toad. I carried this nickname until my mid thirties and it was even used at work. It was first given by my girlfriend when I ate and tried to feed her legs from a Horned toad.
