Nicknames

"A rose by any other name...." Towns have 'em, so do schools, universities, states and countries. And even planets. Not to mention politicians, famous criminals and sportsmen. And on the home front, many of your friends and relatives and pets have nicknames. A category dedicated to trivia such as how Robert became Bob; or how Margaret morphed into Peggy.

If you had to change your name, what would your new name be, and why would you choose it?

Rick Charge. My friends and I came up with this in high school when I was mulling over legally changing my name. We thought it was simultaneously the coolest and lamest sounding name we'd ever heard. I still stand behind it.
