At work, we've sort of given each other unofficial nicknames around the office. Mine, for instance, is Liubird: a play on my last name and a bluebird, since my business attire usually veers toward the color blue. Now, we just got a new employee this week. Her name is Cindy Deanna Rom, and hers comes off as a natural acronym: C.D. ROM, a nick she's admitted to wearing on her lapel with pride since, well...... CD-ROMs came about. This is right up there with one of our supervisors, A.T.M, aka Akshat Theodore Mehra. :)
Outside of work and online, it's Angie, of course. My little niece calls me Auntie Ang, usually by my request. And my older brother used to call me Dirty Chicken, for um..... undisclosed reasons. (And like several other names from him, that was certainly NOT by my request.)
Anyway! Do any of you have nicknames, either given to yourself or by others?
