I have a very short name and people tend to call me by that name only.. And I am not at all worried abt that I don't have a nickname.. Its good for me.. Coz people tend to keep awkward names as nicknames which u smtimes don't like.. So, its better that I am called by my name only.. Its Amit...

My first name is Cheryl Anne.. Family and close friends call me Cheche.. When I was in high school, I have another classmate whose name was also Cheryl.. so what we did was combine the 1st syllables of our first and last names to create a nickname that would make a bit of a difference instead of them calling us both Cheryl.. I became CheSab and she was CheSan.. At work, CheSab was a bit of a mouthful for my colleagues, they shortened it further into Ches.. So if people call me Cheche, they are either a relative or a close friend of mine.. If I'm called CheSab, then that's a high school or college friend.. If I'm called Ches, that person is someone from work or a new friend or acquaintance.. And of course, I'm SWEETY to my husband..
