Topic Your characters nickname, and how he/she got it.
*looks at all the other cool nicknames and cries*
Tamiay "Wetrobes" GeartinkererShe actualy has a few nicknames, but thats the one that springs to my mind, Guess how she got it, I will give you a hint, she used to be afraid of EVERYTHING!
Tyriq "Ty" Ephraim
Even though Tyriqs name is short, nearly everyone says "Ty", which is confusing if someone says "Ty" (thank you) in Guildchat and I think they are talking to me.
Joseph "Joey" Brightman (Joeyj)
My worgen Joseph got the nickname "Joey" from a dwarf I met in the Pig and Whistle and it has grown on me so much I introduce my char as Joey. Joseph didn't want to be called his real name, so the dwarf kept coming up with nicknames for him.
A not very widespread nickname, most used by darker factions of Horde RP on my server.
One day late at night after a battle, my character sits in desolation hold, tired after the efforts made during the day. A goblin he considers an 'enemy' walks up and begins making a jape, involving trying to make him date a rock, he ignores her for the most of the while. However, after she marries him and the rock (which she painted a face on) and turns her back on him to go pester someone else, he picks up a few smaller rocks and lays them between the rock and himself. Which then earned him the nick-name.
Aand that's about the only nickname that my character got, atleast as far as I know.

I'm not sure if this counts as a nickname, but here goes.
Felgrid has by some of his friends called the "Ladies man". But he slightly hates being called that.
It started because of his "Gentleman" way of behaving. And some has misunderstood this as an attempt to flirt.
90 Worgen Mage
This character never knew either of his 'rents (Yeah, I know. First RP char ever, though i was to lazy to change it into something good now :P)
so he has no last name. So, a dwarven friend came up with one...
' 'ow about: "Domi-... Domimf-." Come on... "Dominosi-"... I knew it a second ago!
'Well, you like fancy words. now you can use them every time you introduce yerself!'
'That is most certainly incorrect, my manner of speech is neither 'Fancy" as you call it, nor...'
'Dominium-philosoforum it is!'
It never hooked on. Thank god :P
However, I think he still speaks about me as that. And I hope he is the only one XD
Although I am flattered by what it is supposed to mean...
Seeing as Kubluku's nickname is just Koob, I guess I will say why I named him Kubluku
A while ago when I was studying mongolian history Someone told me of Kublai Khan, but at the time I thought they said Kubluku, and it has stuck with me ever since : )
My old Forsaken character was nicknamed "Bob"
It came about when some friends were discussing who Forsaken were before they were servants of the Dark Lady and a certain Blood Elf wondering if those old ties still held.
I admitted that I didn't remember much of my life before becoming Forsaken and "was probably just 'Bob the Farmer' or somesuch, either way that life doesn't matter now..".
From that point on people kept referring to me as Bob and would introduce me to new people as "Bob the Farmer" as sort of a long running joke.
Caused a lot of confusion with a certain Tauren who didn't understand that my name wasn't Bob and that I wasn't a farmer either....
