    I don’t like when people I barely know give me a nickname lol, unless it has meaning behind it. For example, someone met me once and as a conversation starter asked me if I prefer purple or green grapes. Then afterwards they called me purple grape. That’s acceptable. But don’t call me hun, babe, etc :iik:

    Some people call me Mat and that's all fine.

    I don't give nickname.

    I called Benyamin Tarzan once. I don’t even know why. He didn’t miss a beat and called me Jane

    I usually never give people nicknames. I'll call my BF numerous different names because I think I'm funny but in public I still just call him by his first name.

    I hate when I first meet someone and right away they start calling me "Hun" and "babe". Always makes me wonder if they just forgot what my name was.

    When people other than my parents or (great)grandparents call me “lieverd” or “schatje”, (sweetheart or honey) I refuse to even react.

    Most of the time gave the nickname on their looks or behavior.

    I don't know if this counts but this old lady used to call me all of the wrong names that weren't my name when she knew what my name was, lol.

    We gave our friend the nickname of Doughboy because he was fat and got annoyed whenever we poked his belly, lol. :)
