Nicknames you have; why do you have them?
Since my name is Jeremy (not Jeremiah!), kids in elementary and high school called me “Bullfrog” and sang “Jeremiah was a bullfrog…” whenever they saw me. It didn’t bother me too much. There were way worse names that they were calling other kids so Bullfrog didn’t seem so bad. I didn’t have any nicknames in college and today, I’m simply known as “Hubster” to my wife and “Dada” to my kids. Sometimes people call me “Jer” but I absolutely hate that nickname and get pretty mad when people use it.
