What were yours eh?

School - Bones (not Star Trek related, I was very skinny)
Home - Pacey (not Dawson’s Creek related, predated that show 🤷)…
8-13: Farty, was short for Fat Farty Fearn. Was really great being introduced with it to girls on a PGL trip, such a mixed set of emotions hearing someone you fancy shout “I love Farty, he’s the best” when completing a facing forward abseil
Burners or Burnard
Cause I kept getting caught smoking
Was quite funny that both of my brothers and I were known as Tomo to our friends but not everyone knew our first names. So quite often people would knock on or call the house phone and squeal “ee-arr is Tomo in?” only for my bemused, incredibly well spoken mother to ask which one they meant and a lot of the time got a “erm, dunno?” in response
None I would care to recall.
Ohhh ~penny drops~ I was saying it like it rhymed with, err, Comb-o
One of my parent’s nicknames for me that really doesn’t translate was based on two key facts about me: I sniffle a lot, and my hair is messy.
Another one they had for me was based on my being a very fat baby/toddler who was surprisingly fast. Not always a good combo, as it would turn out.
Thanks for the lovely names, mum and dad
I was briefly nicknamed Squirrel, as my (then) French-sounding surname was mispronounced by a lad from Hong Kong at school. Nothing to do with nuts.
But mostly, due to being quite wee at the time, Squirt.
Got called Mary a bit when I was about 18 which was a reference to the song Mambo #5 but I can’t remember why
Older sister called me “Anthony” from the Royle Family as she was always getting me to make her tea
laughing quite a lot at this
There was a David Pugh in an old place of work that we would call pubes or pubiscus, behind his back of course.
Another vote for not wanting to recall the absolute horrid time I had in secondary school as a child. Urrgh.
This is how I’ll be referring to you from now on.
a weird number of people call me by my full name. doesn’t happen in Spain for obvious reasons, but my first and surnames really roll off the tongue together.
A lot of people have and a lot of people still do call me by my surname.
Really weird when a friend’s partner who I don’t really know does it.
