>#144: Give Yourself a Nickname

>What would you like people to call you? Maybe you already have a nickname. Dream up a new one.

Nicknames usually are part of your name, have something to do with what your are good at or came from a funny story about you.

Do you read a lot? Maybe people call you a “bookworm”.
This isn’t really a nickname–just a label as people who read
a lot can be all called bookworms.
However, if they call you Bookworm Jane–
then that might be a nickname. (If your name is Jane.)

For example: Names like Jean can become Jeanie. Someone with a good aim might be called “Eagle Eye”. And someone who accidentally ran over a worm with their bike and made a big deal about it might be called “Squash” for squashing worms.

Make this a family activity: Make up a nice nickname for everyone in your family.

This activity promotes creativity.
