Do nicknames annoy you. Nicknames, not counting my screen name on here annoy me to be honest. I especially dislike nicknames regarding my gender. It's like, okay, I already have a perfectly normal name. Please stop it. I only like the abbreviation of my full first name.

Whenever my uncle visits, he calls me "Bubba" and I hate it so much that the next time he visits, I'll stay out of the house.

I hate gender related nicknames. They make me want to puke it up pink. I don't mind being called something masculine like Big Baby Schultz, though.

When people call me lady as in, "let's go lady!" or "hey lady! How are you today?" it's really annoying especially if I've said what my name is before. I am female. I look female but that doesn't mean that I'm ladylike.

I am learning to like my childhood nickname, which I never used as an adult because it sounded too much like a name for a little girl. My given name sounds a bit old, however. I won't reveal either here for privacy purposes. I prefer to use my screen name, which is related to my passion for tennis. Years ago, I had a screen name reflecting my love of cats.

I'm okay with most nicknames. I have tons. I don't like things like "little girl", "lady", or "woman" though.

I don't like my username on here, to be honest and would change it if I could.

I like nicknames. It's my given name I hate, so much that I took another name legally some a while ago. While I like that name, and its nick, I still prefer (other) nicknames.

I particularly like nicks based on my interests. I like and identify with them. They feel like me.
