* Nicknaming is basically the national pastime of {{UsefulNotes/Australia}}. Any proper name in Australia can and will be turned into a nickname. Is your last name Smith? You're Smithy now. A woman named Sharon? Shazza. A restaurant chain named [[{{UsefulNotes/McDonalds}} [=McDonald's=]]]? Macca's. A city named Fremantle? Freo. [[https://open.abc.net.au/explore/93312 Ironic and derogatory nicknames]] are also popular. One small town has even opened up a [[http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-10-22/coonamble-nickname-hall-of-fame/6873500 Nickname Hall of Fame]].

* Inverted in ''WebAnimation/NoEvil'', where everyone has nicknames, but Ichabod simply will not use them, even though most of the main characters' real names are awkward to pronounce for most native English speakers (Calamity/Chalchiutlique, for example). Pity his voice actor.

** Rolf as well. The pattern to his nicknames is generally "Description of their character" + "Their name" + "Their gender".

Now a lot of you have been wondering why I call myself TheNicknamer. Well, it's simple: I never use anyone's real name. I just make up a short catchy moniker for them. Why do I do this? Perhaps I [[AloofAlly can't be bothered]] learning your names ([[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Nothing personal]], [[FreudianExcuse I had a hard childhood]]). Some say that it's because I'm childish or [[{{Kawaisa}} trying to be cute.]] But really, you all know it makes me TotallyRadical, don't you?
