From the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
Definition of NICKNAME
1 : a usually descriptive name given instead of or in addition to the one belonging to a person, place, or thing
Lorn — mostly used by my friends.
Na — mostly used by close family members only.
Lon — used by a math geek friend of mine once upon a time.
Mommy — used by my kids; especially useful when one of them are complaining about the other and needs adult intervention, i.e. “See, Mommy told you so!” or “I’M TELLING MOMMY!”
A plain ol’ name deserves a plain ol’ set of nicknames, if you ask me.
Come to think of it, though, I had never, in memory, ever been called funny names other than off my actual name. It’s probably because I don’t take crap from other people, and have the tendency to bully a bully when I spot one. And also probably because I intimidate people (and I still do today) without much effort, therefore people tend to avoid name-calling me.
The only other nickname I have been called was “Professor,” and even that was used by one of my relatives ages ago. This nickname doesn’t bother me one bit.
I would have thought that my mom would have a nickname for me like “scowl-face,” but nope, she got none of that.
If anyone would ever name-call me, I’d probably have a simple comeback for it. Like, if someone do call me “scowl-face,” I’d just look back at the person and ask, –
And what are you?
*utterly confused/shock/sarcasm/eye-roll/talk to the hand*
Like I said. Simple.
Because jerks and idiots don’t deserve witty comebacks.
