    Default Nicknames

    Do adults have them, or is it something you grow out of?

    Most kids have one at some stage, what was yours and why?

    My uncle never called me by my name, he always called me Rodney even when I became an adult. It started when I was little because I really wanted a pair of these. I never got them though.

    I promised myself that one day I'd own a pair, but I think I'm maybe a tad too old to get away with wearing red patent shoes now.

    I've no idea, I didn't though.

    I probably ended up wearing a really masculine black shoe instead.

    It was the opposite for me, I never had a nickname as a kid but for years my nickname at work has been Belches. It's nothing to do with belching, it just is what it is.

    There are a lot of nicknames in the military, especially in the Navy. They used to have a list of a lot of the main ones on their website.

    In secondary school the boys from the local comprehensive used to call me Death. It stuck for a while and I'd be happily walking through town to calls of "hi death" nice...

    ( we studied a play in English called Under Milk Wood and a character was called Evans the Death)

    Nice.

    Some names are not great. My sister used to call me bonomint because I was very thin.

    I was 'skeleton' at school because I was so thin. Hard to believe now.
