RE: The Weekend : Nicknames Given or Received

Awesome stories and some hilarious nicknames. We aren't that heavy on nicknames in Holland but I remember having a classmate in high school, originally from Iran, whose name is Ali Niknam. I liked to refer to him as either Ali N ( Pronounce as Ali-en ) or Ali Nickname

haha!

I know you love wordplay - nicknames like this would really appeal to you. Here your name would just be abbreviated. Blanchy would still be Blanchy, but your surname doesn't work for that here so you'd just be Vinny or maybe Dutchy.

Vinny or Dutchy?? 😂 😂. What country is this ? Dutchy Blanche has a kinda of a gangster ring to it. How did you come to that conclusion? haha. I would have thought it would have been paddy or something like that.

Australia. Haha yes it could be Paddy but that's a bit old school and kinda racist!

True my dad lived in England and everybody called him Paddy. He hated it and got in more scuffles to remind people his real name

It really shows up people's ignorance. Like when you have a hard to pronounce foreign name but make NO effort to learn it and instead give them a western name. Totally disrespectful.
