Thread Name: BS: Nicknames
Subject: RE: BS: Nicknames
I love that Mooh is pronounced Mike. I use Mrrzy because it is my childhood nickname, invented because my sisters (7, 6 and nearly 5 at my birth) couldn't pronounce all the syllables in my name. Mrr is the short version, which I also use to sign notes and such. Mrr is pronounced myrrh, and given that, Mrrzy is pronounced like it's spelled. I have a cookie here but not at work, so I usually post as Mrrzy-from-work when posting from work, though sometimes I've used just Mrr. I always end up signing notes Mrr with any new group I get into (college, grad school, work) as my real name is long and not otherwise shorten-able without mutating it into another name. Ever since I started joining Internet clubs I've used it too, as I cherish the hope that some day, a long-lost friend of mine will recognize the nickname...
