    My dad called me Sugarfoot because I would climb all the time, but I (almost) never fell.

    What was your childhood nickname? How did you get it? Don't be shy :blushing:!

    Sugarfoot! That's adorable lol. Mine are a bit unimaginative, when I was a young kid my friends and family called me "Ry". Some of them still do which is kind of nice. As a teenager it was common for all the boys to refer to each other by their last names and (at the time anyway) replacing the last syllable with "erz" or "ee" was the thing to do. So I was "Beggerz", because my last name starts with Beg ¬¬ can't say I was happy with that one.

    I don't have a nick name or want to use one. But in my area, that people in rural areas call young boys "tiny cocks" is not uncommon. Sometimes, some old men in the street call me so, and I like it very much, of course if they are handsome! :nb)

    My nickname was and still is "gracy".I think I don't need to tell the reason it's quite obvious.

    Some of my friends called me Geordie, which sometimes morphed into Geordler.

    In my school, it was the " nator" suffix added to names, until poor Yuri , fresh from Russia arrived. And there was, of course, John, " No Nickname" Jones.
