This is when English aristocrats (particularly ones in historical settings) typically in positions of power and/or respect, instead of using their own dramatic sounding like say…... Bertrand Augustus Maximinus Plantagenet…. or at least respectable sounding like say…. Thomas Chamberlain full names choose instead to go by incredibly childish sounding nicknames like Bertie or Tommy, names you could easily imagine seeing on the label of a Teddy bear
