My name doesn't have a fitting nickname. There's no legitimate shortening of "Laura". So I grew up never really being called anything other than that. However, since I started raiding in WoW, I've been called by my main character's name, Kezell. It's kind of amusing (and also slightly frustrating) that I'm becoming accustomed to this name instead of my widely adopted screen name, Kreskell. However, at this point, I respond to other character names as well, like Kutuka (my friend calls me kutkut [coot coot]) and Twilly (shortening of Twillysparks [10 points to whoever gets it]). I find this completely fascinating after living my entire life free of nicknames.
Can anyone else relate to this or am I completely bonkers?
