Do you have a nickname? A lot of persons do have a nickname. When I was growing up, my family called me Allie. Later, my CB handle was Alley Cat. Did you know that the correct word for "nickname" is SOBRIQUET. The sentence is: Nancy was proud of her beautiful red hair, but she hated the SOBRIQUET "carrot top. "

Nickname is a whole lot easier to say.

Thanks for the new word but I'll gladly stick with nickname.

I've heard the word before but for some reason thought it was the name of a menu course - like entree or dessert. I wonder where I got that idea?
