    Default Your Name Is This But I Will Call You...

    All of us have names (obviously). But sometimes, we call other people differently. Sometimes, we call them by their nicknames. Or from names derived from their real names.

    How do you call your friends? Do you say their actual name? Or by their nickname? Or any other method?

    For me, since I'm such a lazy bum, I call my friends on the significant syllable of their name. If your name is Daisy, I'll probably call you "Day" :P If it's Francis, most probably Frans XD And "Dan" for Danielle (gender's unimportant for that LOL). This is especially true for people with names you don't see everyday, such as Anne, Ted, etc. (Who names their kid Haggai (Hags)?)

    How about yours? (:

    Awwwwh your nicknames for people are so cute!

    I tend to create random "cute" nicknames for people, that are usually fun twists on their name xD Or fun, not so clever twists haha! Sunny becomes Sunshine, Daisy becomes "flowerchild." Or names will end up ending in -bae or -baby. I also frequently call people honey without even realizing it.

    Sometimes people will call me Smiley irl, and I think, how do you know?!

    My name is Kelly and I get the occasional "Kel" now and then. My boyfriend refuses to call me this, though, because he associates it with the old 90's show Kenan and Kel XD

    With other people, I do sometimes shorten their names, but only if I feel familiar and comfortable with them. Rachel=Rach, Tatiana=Tati, etc.

    I have a couple of friends with nicknames but usually I use real names. As for me, again I'm called by my real name most of the time :3 Some people called me Sheppy or Shepster due to my surname being Shepherd, and some called me Jakey-poo in an annoying/affectionate kind of way xD

    I have another friend named Kelly who I always refer to as KelKel or Kellz n~n So cute!

    How do people feel about the Americanized names some Asian individuals adopt when moving to America? Ex: Xiaoyu becoming Linda or something

    I knew a chinese girl who arrived and decided that her english name was "Fanny". She got through 5 years of school with everybody kind of accepting it, then two weeks after she went to university she made a facebook post saying "I shall now be known as Sarah".

    My name's Audra irl, and sometimes people have trouble mispronouncing that, so I just let them use whatever they can get that's closest to that. It's usually Audrey or Audria, and I'm like "yep, close enough, gg." I have a group of friends from the library that call me Audrawr though. My mom also calls me Audrey on occasion.

    Online, I'm Felly, and pretty much any variation of that I take. xD

    As for Asians Americanizing their names when they come here, I can understand why because their names can be hard to pronounce. I had an Asian girl in my theatre class sophomore year, & she was really nice; she used her actual name instead of an Americanized name. I've met others that just Americanize their names. If using an Americanized name makes them more comfortable, than I don't see why not.

    My real name is Rose, but my entire life, people have called me Rosie. My friends like to shorten it down to Ro, and my sports coach liked to call me R2D2 because RD are my initials. :3
