To have a nick name isn't too hard and I tell you it makes you when more popular than you just having a natural name. And Nick names are always formed by others and not you.
People don't seem to call nicks formed by you cause they feel it's not explaining who you are. And when they give you a nick it's always a good one and it's always fresh to call them.
HOW I GOT MY NICKNAME...
Before I finally concluded on the nick name "Aniss Emma". It took time and it went through a lot of processes. I even had to make it more easy to spell. It started from them calling me "Ani" then they saw it wasn't going with the groove and switched to "Emma"
Over time someone came along and called me "Aniss baba"(if you understand) then I thought, why shouldn't I merge the two together and make it my nickname. And so that's how it was formed and that's how it became my generally known Nick.
There are still some that call only Aniss or some that only call Emma. But it's the same and it's a good nickname too cause I like it.
I'd love to hear how you got your Nick and how much you like it too. Or just share your nickname here.
Let's make this fun... I'll be waiting for you in the comments section.
