Mine at work is - "Rock steady Eddie" shortened to "Rock steady"

on account of my surname being Hemmings and an english cricketer by the name of Eddie Hemmings.

where the rock steady come from i can only presume its just the rhyming part of it?

ooh to ooh to be ooh to be a gooner!

I have a few that different people call me:

#9 - The guy calls me that name because over the summer when i was working, i went to a fasat food pizza stand almost every day and always ordered the #9 combo meal and he was always the one that rang up my order.

Road Kill - While i was a boyscout, i was acting like an idiot and a guy dared me to run out in front of a car and stay there for as long as i can before i run out of the way (i know... i was an idiot), well i did it and i broke my leg while trying to run out of the way. It seems that it was my parents who were driving the car.

Mr. Burns - A guy in my computer class keeps on calling me that name because i remind him of Mr. Burns from the TV show M.A.S.H. (i wonder how i remind him of the guy..... hmm..... 0 Smile/happy/getting dizzy

That is about all I can think of right now.....

All my friends have nicknames for each other. Almost all of them call me Deadwood or just Wood with a few that still call me Sully.

Some of friends' nicknames include
Hoe - first name is Joe
Easy - always lost big at poker (also called him $60-John)
Whar (rhymes with car) - no real reason
Grindstone - last name is Grinstead
Troy-boy - first name Troy
Ding or Dinger - He's a clod and always 'dinging' his head on stuff.
Repeat - first name Pete
Sammy - last name Szmanski
Smit or Smitty - last name is Smith
Beeks - no real reason
Crash - he put himself in intensive care by planting his head into a maple tree while driving an ATV. Almost died.

These aren't just occasional either. We NEVER call each other by are real names for some reason. Maybe its a guy-thing.

I've never had too many nicknames that have stuck..

In high school, my football team knew me as Stumpy (because of a bad amputee joke I made) or Potato (due to the fact that I would only eat a potato before a game).

Here, I'm known as Tex or Texas because that is where I transferred from.

I've got 2

1: Muppetman. My last name is Henderson and for a long time it seemed
whenever I handed a check over (dry cleaners for example) they'd see
my last name and say "Hey..you're the muppet guy!" It was fun the first
couple times but got old after that..but at any rate, a number of folks at
work started using that

2: Jum..my first name is Jim..many years ago a group I managed at work got
an award and we got a plaque with our names on it..many, including mine
had their first names misspelled..mine came out "Jum"..my boss started
calling me that and it's kinda stuck

What a long strange trip it's been

Various nicknames have come and gone... My favorite right now is "Cat Lady" which is what all the people at the APL shelter call me, because I only volunteer with the cats. Some of the people there can't even remember my real name, so they just call me "Hey Cat lady, come here..." when they need my assistance.

I've been called "canucklehead" online a few times, but my "official" nick-name for years has been "rat piss". It's a bastardization of my last name, and it's stuck with me over the years.

The nickname has even followed me to work after one of my friends came by the office to meet for lunch and called me "rat piss" without thinking.

It's not a nice nickname, but it's one I've actually grown to become fond of. It's very close to my last name and I don't take any offense to it. There are also several variations --- "RP" for example; "Ratty" another; and simply "Rat" as yet a final example.

In my class we had four Dans, so we started using surnames instead which gradually morphed into several nicknames used by different people;

Gaston >> Gasts >> Gastont >> Goose

Still don't quite know how or where the Goose bit came from, but I don't mind any of them. Also sometimes called Flying Boy, wonder why?  Big thumbs up

Hmm ok here goes....
My friends in the UK call me PID, because my name is Stuart.....so, drop the 'art' and you'll understand why they call me that!
My friends here in Canada call me 'the machine', and that's because when i get drunk, i'll sing/dance/stay up all night and not even think about stopping until i'm the last one left standing.

Rusty. I grew up with this one, as I am named after my father, so the family from the start called me Rusty, after my middle name Russell. The only folks that call me it now are family and a few old friends from high school (Some of them will call me Rusty one minute and Steven the next).

Stephanie. This started one night at a job I worked at in the late 1990s, as a joke by my department manager. Evidently, I wasn't picking up the store phone quick enough when would page me, so he said over the store intercom system (with customers still in the store) "Stephanie Brown, pick up on the red line". I ran to the phone and said back "What do you want Roberta? (his name was Robert)" The next day, he told a few of the other part time stock clerks about it and they started to call me Stephanie, so I started to call them feminine versions of their names (Nick became Nicole, Matt became Matilda, and Jamie, well that's a unisex name) and this went on even after I changed departments.

Jagr. Same workplace as above, one of my coworkers started to call me that because at the time, my favorite NHL team was the Pittsburgh Penguins (The Thrashers were still a few years away), and the coworker in question was also a hockey fan and just started to call me Jagr. He was the only guy there that called me that, my bosses there always called me Stevie.

Picnic. I picked this one about five years ago one night while out with some coworkers when I was working at AirTran. I was wearing a red and white checked Ben Sherman shirt and a couple of coworkers starting making jokes like "You got any fried chicken" and various other picnicking comments. The next day at work, everyone that was out the night before kept calling me that and eventually everybody on the ramp and gate (and a few mechanics and GSE guys) called me by it. In my circle of friends from work, there were three of us with similar names so it made since for the two younger ones to be called something else. The Picnic nickname stuck with me, and the other Steve got called by his last name. Thankfully when I went to work across the concourse to ASA the name didn't follow amongst those employees. I still get called Picnic whenever I see any of my old friends from AirTran.

Now for my current nickname: Brownie. When I started working for my current employer, the guy that I was on a route with had the same name just spelled differently. They called me Brownie and called the other by his last name.

Moe- primary-- everyone in my social life knows me as: Moe.
Medo- 'meadow' -- primary/family -- most, if not, all my family members use my middle name.

Now for the fun nicknames:

Easy- popular name among friends at the bar/clubs... (I don't know why!  Big grin ) ..plus it rhymes with my last name!
Moesha- popular among friends, even Concordeboy sometimes call me by this name.
Hoe-Moe: newest name, born about two months ago.
