Most of my friends use to call me by my surname, initially I just use to hate it when they addressed me by my surname (back in my college days) but i just miss it and whenever i talk to them on phone i feel so glad when they just call me by my surname.. What do you friends call you and do you get annoyed by the nicknames they call you

yes not all can call you by your nicknames and those who call you by you name has more of a formal relationship I guess.

Hi niitesh, I don't mind how my friends call me as long as they don't address me with an awful name which is indecent. Fortunate that this haven't happened on me Most of my friends and colleagues like calling my first name. They don't call my surname for there are several friends and colleagues do have the same surname as well. We have almost 30 staffs in the same office. This happened before that, when calling the surname, all of us who have the same surname would look at the person who uttered the surname. We answered him at the same time too To avoid the same ridiculous situation to happen again we prefer to call the name of colleagues. Happy posting

behind the name - naming names
when i was in college most professors call their students by their surnames,i guess that was the first time i've experienced calling by surname so,i wasn't comfortable with it specially when my classmates call me by surname.when i came to work,i also called by co-workers by surname.i hate it though.my close friends from my work and former classmates call me by nickname which i really liked.i usually prefer to be called by nickname which is "vi". oh,i remembered when i was in grade school,one of my teachers called me by a different name,which i really hate.in grade school we used to have nametags and obviously it's in all caps.i got a problem with my name back then because there's a space between my names.which makes me irritated stating my name different pronunciation.i've been baptized by the name of anna vi.and since its all caps in nametags,my teacher called me ANNA and (the roman numeral VI,meaning "six").i really hate it.sucks!i also once called "wannabe" or "immabe" (song title of black eyed peas).hate it,specially with matching songs when calling me. good thing,it just happened once in my life.times,that is irritable to remember! i know,i can get used to it...someday...

My user name is my nickname hun. I have had several nicknames in my time and to be honest there has only been one that upset me. Way back when I was at school I was referred to as *Four eyes* because I wore glasses, kids can be so hurtful.

Hi, friend. You'll never guess what my friends call me. They call me "fairy". Very interesting, don't you think? I got that nickname in college. I didn't know who was the first to call me like that, but then everyone seemed to call me that way. They told me that i was a beautiful girl like a fairy and i deserved that beautiful name because of my sweet nature. I wasn't even aware that no one called me by my full name or just given name. Even though i've graduated for two years, my friends still call me 'fairy" when we talk to each other on the phone. Now i feel it's really weird that my friends call my full name.

Some friends call me by my first name and sometimes they just add it with letter "S". Then some of them just want to be unique and they will just add "ng" on my name. Its really funny how they sounded. But its still my name because my name it sounded unique.

I don't get annoyed when my friends call me by the nickname they gave me :) When I was in highschool they call me "mic-mic" because of my white complexion. It came from a milk candy here in our country. And during college everyones call me "yam". It came from my surname :) It just so happen that I have a friend that is fond of making our name short and unique. She can't shorten my first name that's why they get it from my surname.

Hi niitesh! My friends used to call me in different names. For my friends back in school they used to call me by nickname. With regard to my friends back at work, they used to call me by my first name which is a combination of two. Lastly, with my childhood friends, they used to call me in a different name. Part of it was taken from my 2nd name but they added some letters to it and that makes it funny. So whenever someone will call me in a name and I cannot recognize them at all, somehow the name that was used in calling me gave me a clue, if that someone was one of my friends from school or from work or someone closesst to me during my childhood.

Well, I have different aliases as my friends call me differently. Depending on how close they are to me. MY closest friends, those friends I have in college, would call me what my family calls me- my nickname in the house. During high school, they call me by my first name, my officemate prefer me to call me with my second name. I have 2 word name. So you would know if they are close to me, if they are just an acquaintance and colleagues.
