Huh. You know, I've never thought about this, but are nicknames really prevalent in Asian culture? Especially one's with like 50%+ of the same name, like Nguyen?
I guess I can answer this from an arab prespective? Some names here have a nickname equivalent. My brother and people that share his name can be called Abu Sinaida, and I get called Abu Shihab on and off. Most of the time they're shortened to start with bu instead of Abu, but that's a regional dialect.

I did a slight bit of research, and this is apparently called a Kunya, possibly used to avoid calling someone by their name in case someone wanted to exert power over the person, or to instill a hope that one day their child will be a parent. Those are two theories I heard anyway.

More likely, I expect East Asians end up with anglicized nicknames as westerners and other foreigners have trouble pronouncing Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese, and similar languages. We have a Chinese professor at our university that calls himself by an anglicized name and I know Jackie Chan (Kongsang Chan I think) got the Jackie nickname working at a construction site in Australia.

In Thailand, nicknames and full names are different, because back in the day of yore you have two names, your given name and your position. So for example King Rama I's given name is Thongduang, but his "full name" is Phra Phutthayotfa Chulalok. We don't shorten full names.

So now that we got the first name and surname system thanks to our western overlords allies, people make up titles for themselves and use that as their full name.

So I'm sitting in class when out of nowhere someone hit me in the head with a hat. My friend tells me,"Dude that's your sister" I'm sitting in disbelief for a moment them turn around to see my sister in uniform. I havnt seen her since Christmas and didn't think she was coming back till tomorrow. (She's in the navy) she said she was taking me home and was going to surprise mom too.
I'm soooo happy! This is amazing :)

Yeah, I felt the same way when I didn't get crushed by a collapsing building in an earthquake.
Can confirm that this is a good feeling.

Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.
