Nicknames

Yesterday at my house a discussion came up as to how people got their nicknames. Giffy is my foetus name. I was called it before I was born. In thailand pretty much everyone has a nickname which they are called all the time. For example if I was a teacher in Thailand I would be called Khunkru (teacher) Giffy, or perhaps Gif. Anyway because this is how it is in thailand, my cousins had this list of what their future cousins would/should be called (that's what Dad says anyway) and they were up to Gif (sounds like gip) on their list and Dad anglicized it to Giffy.

When I was little (maybe 7 or younger) I asked my mum what Giffy means. She told me "talkative". The lies!

What is your nick? and Why?
