Our parents spend a great deal of time selecting just the right name for us, and then we find ourselves being called by a totally different name.

Did you have a nick name as a child?
Did you not have one during childhood and as an adult you now have one?
Did you like it? Sometimes nick names are used to tease and bully have you been the butt of an unfunny name.

Going to school was 'Stringy' I hated it.

Now I am called VoVo (it means grandmother).
The whole family call me that, so I just go with it!
No I don't have.
Yes I was bullied at lot in school. They called me Ant's Nest, Antelope, Anteater, Antidote and then later when the Internet came about... yeah, that too.
I use my nickname all the time so much so that when I rang a close friend the other day and said hi it's 'my real name' she said, who? Lol She really thought it was my birth name. I prefer it so I was delighted!
Vee, Vio, Vic, Viki, Eta, Leta...I think that just about covers it. The latter two I have had since I was a child, and the latest addition is Viki.

Yes, I do -one of them is Finy, which is my middle name only my father spellt it wrong when I was born. He was at the pictures at the time and in those days they flashed messages on the screen, and he was asked to come to the manager's office, as I had been born.

Must have been in the excitement, he left one "N" off which is odd as it was his mother's name.

I also use Petal which came about when I had a business, and had to travel to remote places selling. One of my customers thought I was "cute" and called me petal, and this one has stuck for many years till I started using it on the Internet.
