My given name is Mary Alice. I have always been MaryAlice. Sometimes with a capital A sometimes not. But there have been many people that have shortened it. I am also called MT, MA and Miss Mary. And I don't mean by younger people. Sometimes even bosses. My Mexican friends call me Maria Alise.

Oh, Mary Darlene is actually really cute. I have never heard those together before.
Darling would be a cute nickname.

I don't have any nickname now. When I was younger my Dad called me Toots and my aunt (Godmother) called me Darl. One friend called me Dar Dar. I didn't really like the name Darlene too well, so tried going by my first name, but when someone calls me Mary I never know they're talking to me. Fun when you go somewhere like the Doctor's office and half the people in there are named Mary.

Ahhhhh, I am now enlightened as to your spark name, Cricket!

Um, well, my NAME is Susan.
All my sisters and friends call me Sue, which I really really really have come to not like. It sounds so extremely BLAH to me.

Actually, I never liked Susan either, but since I discovered that Jane Austen wrote a book called Susan....maybe I like it after all. (I've NEVER heard of anyone from before 1900's called Susan, have YOU? Yet Jane Austen died in 1817!!!!! For her to use my name is very interesting to me.

My Dad called me Sue-Sue (which I love....sigh Dear Ole Dad.) And my husband does,too, when he wants to call me an endearment. Hubby also sings me the Susie Q song.

Some of my teachers and some of my aunts and uncles would call me Susie. I liked those because it was said with tenderness.

And if mother was in 'warning mode' she would give me that look and say, 'SOOzin....'
Mom called me Susan mostly, Sue and Sue-Sue occasionally.

I had tried to create names for myself over the years like using a short version of my middle name or my initials, which spell a name,but they wouldn't catch on with other people.
I find that my sisters and nieces and nephews are uncomfortable with Susan, but that's how I introduce myself to everyone now.
We sisters kinda decided that since mom and dad were both gone, we should all pick names that we liked and start calling ourselves by them. lol But of course, we are in jest.

My sister passed out nicknames for all us kids when I was about 11. The name Cricket stuck. I was not fond of it at the time. emoticon
My family still calls me Cricket and when the nieces & nephews call my Auntie Cricket, I think it sounds so cute! emoticon

I have several nicknames. My family seems to like giving them and using them. Normally, though, they call my by my legal name in public.

I have a few from friends as well. Although they aren't embarrassing, I still prefer not to share them.

With a name as common as Kimberly, people tend to alter it or abbreviate it. Most people prefer the shortened "Kim" but I am called different/shortened/extended versions ie:

Kim, Kimmie, Kimmer, Kimba, Kimberr, etc.

I'm working my way back to the size I want to be.
On a journey for strength and good health.

growing up I had lots of nicknames from family members to shorten my name because there were four variations of my name in the family: grandpa, mom, uncle and myself. When I became teen aged though I said I didn't want to be called those baby names anymore. My dad started calling me junior and that was fine only from him.
My aunt still calls me my younger nickname and it's okay as long as it's just her.
One of my many nicknames was Annie Fanny.

Residents of Arizona (as of Sept. 2017)
Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of May 2019. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2019 to be back to below 155.

Do you have a nickname? If so, would you care to share it with us? How did you get that nickname?
