Nickname Writing Prompt

Rainbow_penWrite On! Nicknames

This week's Write On! Writing Prompt comes to us from CrimsonCat5 who poses a great question:

If you could give yourself a new nickname, what would it be? Why?

Hmm. That’s tough. Maybe R-Mac. It would be the first initial of my first name, and part of my last name. I always thought doing that was kind of cool. And my friend and I once saw a Julia Styles movie (Save the Last Dance, rated PG-13) where there was a character named Snook. So for some reason, we both got silly and decided to call each other Snook.

What about you guys? Let us all know about your made-up nickname in the Comments below!

    I have had Firefox, IE, and Google chrome downloaded onto my computer for a while now with no problem. Recently I downloaded YIM and now Firefox doesn’t start up. If I restart my computer a few times, and try to open it a few dozen times each time I restart, it will eventually pop up. How do I fix it? Chrome and IE still work fine but I prefer Firefox..

    I have quite a few nicknames in the past and they have always become my absolute permanent nicknames, though if I had to choose two nicknames that suit me best, my ultimate nicknames would be Kiwi and Coco! Kiwi because they’re my favorite color. Coco because I had named a stuffed dog that name, plus I really love hot coco!

    My nickname would probably be Angel, because my four- wheeler is named Wings( literally it’s whats on her tag) and that’s what drives me, and just like wings help a bird clear it’s mind, Wings help me clear my mind.

    Mine would be K-Ro-Line because It’s a freaky way to pronounce my name, and the boys in my class have been calling me that for 4 years and I’m happy with the nickname.

      Hello, since I do not professionally do hair, I am only faialmir with what my products and routine are. When I was first a red head, I used to dye my hair using Garnier. You should just go to the store and check the colors out there! I am not faialmir with the names and it was so long ago I forgot which color I used. You really want to ask a cosmetologist who is a professional for advice! Other than that, just experiment! Sorry I could not be any more help, I wish you the best of luck with your hair.

    Well there’s lots of ways you can make stylish nicknames. Here’s one:
    1.) You can take your username, and put “secret” at the end, and if you’d like to, you can add a number.
