"Hello, 'please call me...' Trope." "Please, call me Tropey."

A stock phase in which a character is adressed by his/her full name, but then is told the exact words 'please, call me...' before inserting his/her prefered nickname.

A sister trope of Don't Call Me Sir (For when a character simply objects to being called sir) and Do Not Call Me Paul (Which is when a character hates his/her name and will be vicious in correcting someone or simply ignore them).
