Nicknames are a substitute of a name given to a person in fun, affection, and belittlement, usually descriptive. They can also be used to shorten a person's name, like "Dick," for Richard. Nicknames, whether positive or negative, are only describing a person's general characteristics. Although hurtful nicknames can lower a persons' reputation and self-esteem, joyful nicknames give the person a sense of pride.

Nicholas, Pat for Patrick, Ang for Angela, Jill for Jillian, and so on.
Nicknames, whether desirable or undesirable, everyone has either had or has now. Parents, coaches, family, and friends give out nicknames in all aspects surrounding that person or person's. Apart from the insulting nicknames given, I have found that the persons' do not really mind after a while. When making fun of or giving a compliment, nicknames come in handy.
