No, the other one.
I think Embarrassing Nickname implies two things just by its name that's different: A nickname is generally given to you by others, not chosen yourself. It's about it being embarrassing. That is, the target thinks the name is embarrassing, rather than other people mocks her for it.
Check out my fanfiction!
The popular option is at 8:3
Still new. Still learning. Asking questions and making mistakes.
Let it run. Monicker is too general a term anyway. Newt Gingrich is a mocked monicker.
Bumping the thread for attention.
Bumping. (BTW, Embarrassing Last Name got launched, even though I think it's covered by Unfortunate Name.)

It looks like there is no consensus for the new name. Should we brainstorm for more ideas?
Mocked Moniker is at 17:8, which passes the 2:1 rule. The only question is if the result is stable.

@76: Given that monicker, by its definition, is just a synonym for "name or nickname", wouldn't Mocked Monicker effectively mean the same thing as Unfortunate Name?

BTW, I want to change my vote, but for some reason, the option keep on saying that the name does not match... how do I make the change?

Well, the "Mocked" part at least shows it's in-universe. And "Monicker" is an improvement because it almost exclusively refers to a fake name or nickname. Which, admittedly, aren't always self-chosen but it's still more clear.
I would very much like if the name could include some variant of self-chosen, but it's probably late with the crowner being put up for so long.

Since we have two options in the green but no consensus on them, I've hooked a runoff. Please avoid downvoting an option unless you're dead-set against it.

Bump.

I did the rename and moved all of the subpages, as well as the indices. Too tired to do any wick cleanup right now.

I did A-B of Fail O Sucky Name. 547 wicks remain.

I don't think the Real Life section is needed. Most if not all of the examples are organizations, sports teams, towns, etc... not bad aliases or fake names people chose for themselves.

Also, judging by the last few pages of this thread this trope is going to be restricted to "in-universe", like Unfortunate Names, right?

C-E is done. 464 wicks to go.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
