So I just posted a thread to my linkshell forums asking about peoples nicknames so I know what to call them once the game starts. It got me to thinking that you all probably have nicknames you go by in game or that people seemed to call you. People always call me Bart in-game. Post what people call(ed) you.

Most people just shortened it to Kae, but a couple called me Kaeboo, lol. My boyfriend still has a habit of calling me both. :P I like it though. At this point my FFXI name is as personal to me as my real name.

It depends, I guess...

My name is/was Deluge on FFXI, so people usually ended up calling me "Del", but we also had a guy in the LS named Delvontes which was also called "Del"...

I couldn't get my name (Pent) that I have used for years and years, because someone in Japan (I guess) had the name Pent. It took some reminding every now and then but I finally got a couple of people to call me Pent.

I shouldn't have a problem with getting the name I want on FFXIV considering everyone has to have a surname too.... but my name will be kept a secret. ;)

Seems like the "standard" for a lot of people is to take the first three letters, even if it sounds a little off ("Os" does sound a little better to me, too, personally). Worked out for me, though, Triane -> "Tri".

I'm Trazier in FFXI. I was originally going for "Traizer" and didn't notice for MONTHS that the "i" was on the wrong side of the "z"... lol. I wanted it to sound like Tray-zer, but oh well lol.

Either way, folks always have called me Traz. I really can't decide if I wanna bring over my FFXI persona or start new. I'm having a REAL hard time with this decision too... :-( I've been Traz since 03! IDK if I can't part with it...

Usually it's the first 2 letters Uo, sometimes Uom (<--weird.) My JPLS friends usually called me Uo-tan, Uo-chan, or Maru-tan/Maru-chan (rarely.)

Interestingly, during FFXIV Beta I was referred to by my surname once during party. Not sure why.

I liked having a short name because I was almost always called by my full name. Every once in a while people just called me "V".

Well, I'm actually having trouble deciding since I have used 3 different names depending on which game I was playing. Atmos was is FFXI, people generally commented on how I got the name Atomos... yeah that happened A LOT lol. Some people took to calling me Atom lol, it stuck because I corrected one guy in my LS when they read it wrong for the first time. Hmm, maybe this isn't such a good name lol.

Second name I used in other MMO's as I tried them, was Mavacas. And Mav was the typical short form, I got no problem with that one either.

Third name was Zalacor. Which I shamelessly stole from my FFXI LS leader when migrated away from FFXI the first time. Zal or Zala were the usual shortforms, I preffered Zal just because Zala sounds a tad more feminine. But I never really brought it up with anyone tho, just didn't matter much.

All name were also replaced with nicknames such as: Jerk, Dirty Ginger Kid, or Tank-Bot. /sigh (lol)

Derail : Which name should I choose! :P

My name in FFXI was Lordtyrant and most PPL called me "LT" or "Lord". I'm most likely going with my current screen name I have on here in FFXIV but I'm not fully sure yet. So I may have a new nickname coming to me lol.

Yeah, I narrowed my view to "on the field" only there with strong bias as a Giants fan. You make a good point there though...
