Ok after just posting a rant about banal topics, I am gonna post one... AKA stands for Also Known As, in other words your nicknames. I am curious how many people have a lot of nicknames, and have gone by the various nicknames at various times in various venues. So lets see how many nicknames from your past you can remember and how you got them. Don't forget to include your MyLot name. My Nicknames: CĂș Allaidh (pronounced Coo Allee) - This is my society name for the SCA, only fellow Scadians call me that Myrddin (aka Wyllt, aka Myrddin Wyllt, sometimes spelled Myrrdin) - this is my most common pseudonym online and was derived from the artherian tales, particularly referring to Merlin 420-guy - this is my blogging alias for my political activist blog about legalizing marijuana Shyboy - this is an early net alias, was given to me by some paintballing buddies who felt everyone needed a cool sounding call sign for paintball... shyboy was the best they could do for me LOL Stoner - file this one under ironic, no one calls me that anymore, but a few people I knew in highschool called me it. I say its an ironic nickname because when I was in highschiool I was completely anti drugs, the reason for the nickname is it relates to my last name. Jeffro - only a handful of people call me this, pals from highschool, there are four of us who have hung out together since grade 7 and still talk all the time. Jeffro is an obvious play on my name of Jeff, not overly inspired I admit, but then Bri for Brian Mr. T for Tyler, and hmmm Mike didn't have one. Double J - my initials are JJ so ya, that one's easy Agent 77 - this one is obscure, only people I worked with at a particular grocery store ever called me this, one of my best friends that I worked with there dubbed me that because when I initialled my slips my initials looked like a 77 and not two J's becuase of the way I write J's

Well if you were a guy I could guess why someone might nickname you tiny, but it wouldn't be nice ;) so ya, tell me why do they call you tiny :D Names given to you by lovers are always that much more important aren't they.... :D

well i know what your refering to, but im obviously not a guy. (which guy would keep their profile pic as a girl avatar?) well i was talking to a friend and describing to him another freind of mine who was pretty short and thin for her age. i refered to her as "tiny". he found it pretty amusing and whenever i spoke about her he would call me tiny. now whenever i talk to him im tiny. cant a human be tiny?

LOL I knew you weren't a guy... Well your story about the nickname tiny wasn't as long or as sorted as I assumed LOL... but I have a pretty twisted imagination.

I have a few nicknames that are derived from my real name "Tamara." Some people call me Tam for short. My family calls me Tammy, and some of my friends that I have known for a long time call me by that name as well. Some people in high school called me Tam Tam lol. I thought that was pretty funny.

You've had WAY too many nicknames GEEK! I haven't had too many nicknames over the years. I have been called "K" (by nuckfuts when we were married), "Kare-bear" (by my best friend of over 30yrs, Dawn), and "Cabbage Patch" (by a classmate in jr high who though my face resembled one). The most common name I'm called is "mom"... but I wouldn't count that as a nickname per se. I'm sure I've been called numerous other things as well, by certain people. I know an ex b/f of mine has an ex wife who lovingly referred to me as "the cumt" (n instead of m of course)... but from what I gather, I wasn't the only one she called that. And perhaps as well, nuckfuts (my nickname for MY ex husband) may have some interesting expletives that he's nicknamed me... but I don't know what they are... yet? lol

Darnit! You're RIGHT! I didn't complete my post. I'll do that now. Other "nicknames" I have gone by or go by, which I refer to as ALIASES (ergo my forgetting to add them lol) are: -Topie (shortened from "Topaz", another name I used to use, as it's my birthstone) -GreenEyedGal (did that one to spy on nuckfuts on dating sites way back when lol) -QueenKaren (my first mylot name, used as a joke when other names wouldn't work, but this one did... eek!) -CanadaGal (my 2nd mylot name, because I wanted something very generic sounding.. and got it!) -Sarcastique... my MOST favourite and most recent one. I chose it as a superhero name for a facebook app game, then used it for other things, including my singsnap alias.

I have a few letters that I write differently also. I mainly write different when I am in a hurry.
