nicknames are fine if a person introduced themselves as such.. but if it's something stupid like a weaboo trying to get me to call them ichigo or something i won't call them that. if it's a shortened form of their name it's fine.

nicknames can fun or degrading depending on what it is. It also makes it easier to pronounce someone's name if it is long or complex. But mine is Abdul, the full arabic name is tough for these americans to say without butchering it.

Some nicknames can be pretty good if well done.
We call one of my friends Koopa (from Mario), another is Mo (Making her name easier), and some others that i can't recall
In the past, a group of friends has called me Zid at school, that was fun

You though?
You can call me onii-chan ;)

I've had so many people even forget my name sometimes. If I ever got cqled one I didn't like I'd tell them I'd throw them of a bridge if they called me that again.

Mine have been at different times of my life.

Junkfood I was in the army always had snacks.

Guido after the army all my friends knew me by it some folks thought it was my name I actually respond to it.

Chewtoy you have to get me very drunk to explain this one or be from the northwest part of the country and have gone to many conventions at which point the second nickname and the third are well know enough that you actually know who I am. Oh I also respond to this one as well.

They can be both funny and annoying, depends on the nickname and the person getting nicknamed.

I like nick names, most people don't like them because they find them annoying. Personally i think it help shows how close you are to the other person, even if it is an annoying nick name. Thankfully i don't have an annoying one, the two i'm mainly called are Aki, and Jdog.

I don't really care I guess. I only remember the nicknames my baseball teammates used to call me. Little George, Topper, Godzilla, and Haruta.

I have a piss poor memory, so I typically throw around nicknames until I can properly recall a person's actual name. As for myself, my name is commonly mispronounced (even after being corrected the first time), and many seem to take pleasure in butchering it, so I'm usually referred to as J-Rod, Jerry, Jerold, Jarred, Jarhead, J-Bird, JerROD (strong emphasis on the second syllable of the name with an extended R sound), Kickle/Juppiter (from playing WoW for over seven years), and Jerrode (rhyming with commode). It's so rare for me to hear my actual name that I sometimes become anxious when it's said.

My nickname as a kid was Squig.
