Directions: Tell us a little about your nicknames even if they're from your name! You must have a few nicknames from either DA, Skype or any souce.
1.) What is your nickname(s)
Envy, Brother, Top Hat, Bunny, Hyena, Bob, Leeroy, Mermaid, Cheetah, Fafnear, Lady Fafnear, Fuzzy
2.) How did you get these names?
Envy- Was given to me in High School. I think I picked it out, but then it just stuck.
Brother- Used by Edward. She calls me that sometimes.
Top Hat- Also got it in High School. I used to wear a top hat every day to school. I would still do it to if I was allowed.
Bunny- I really dont know why I have this one. Someone ran up, called me Bunny, and it stuck.
Hyena- This was a long time ago when I was young. I'd laugh at everything, so they called me Hyena.
Bob- Given to me when I moved to Tennessee. Someone asked me my name, but before I could answer they said "Mind if I call you Bob?" and I said I didn't mind. So now it's stuck.
Leeroy- I was working on a play freshman year of High School, but didn't really talk to anyone. So one day the lead actor came up and told me that since I wouldn't tell anyone my name he'd call me Leeroy. And he did... as did everyone else who worked on the play.
Mermaid- This goes back to when I was like, 5 or 6. I would never get out of the pool so my family called me a mermaid.
Cheetah- This one was a Middle School thing. All us girl friends got big cat nicknames. And since I won the race for the nickname cheetah, I got it.
Fafnear- Was a name given to me when I started to roleplay about 10 years ago. I've used it ever since.
Lady Fafnear- The Lady was added when I was "knighted" on several occasions (Ren fair stuff). So the title went to the Fafnear name.
Fuzzy- Was given to me by Puppy. We're both werewolves, so these are the nicknames we came up with for each other.
3.) Do you use these names a lot?
Some of them yes. Others are either very old or I dont hang around the people who use them much any more. Envy is the most commonly used.
4.) What name would you rather have for your DA name?
I'm very happy with the ones I have now. I wouldn't change them.
