    Someone please help me here, WHY is a nickname necessary? One would have to assume that using a nickname would be an indicator of intent to do something illegal OR the people are ashamed of the name given to them at birth. If your ENTIRE neighborhood used nicknames, it MIGHT be time to move.....
