Nicknames

Call me names, I may not answer you... hahaha!!!

I am usually called:
Mun Mun (文文) - My parents call me that! My relatives from my mom's side call me that! It becomes a nickname for my church friends. Sounds girly huh... Let me remind you, it's 文文, not 雯雯. Well, since it originates from my parents, it will be there, like, forever...
Ah Mun (阿文) - My relatives from my dad's side.
Yew Mun (耀文) - My childhood and teenage friends call me that. Is also my official name at work. That's the name most of my friends use to call me.
David (达味 - Biblical / 大伟 - Common) - My church friends call me that. I choose "David" after King David, based on his biblical story. When I was young, my niece named me David due to some lost reason, but later did I know that it is God's will for me to be called that way. I love my Baptism name - Beloved.
+ Kor-Kor (~~哥哥) - Some of my cousins or friends' younger brothers / sisters will call me that.
Mun Sook (文叔) - Occasionally called by my nephews / nieces. I'd prefer them call me Ah Mun. Yes, to hide my age!! :-P

Others... thanks to all my creative friends out there:
Kam Sau Mun (禽兽文) - Literally means Mun the Beast in Cantonese - my childhood nickname... I can't recall why I'm called a beast...
Mosquito/Mun (蚊) (Cantonese) - Derived from my name "Mun" (文)... lame
Siew Ching (小青) - A girl's name apparently, named after one girl appeared in one of the Ridsect Mosquito Repellant TV commercial... that's not lame, that's quite embarrassing
Mun Yew - A name mistakenly swapped by my tutor
Crazy Brain Machine - Appeared in my school magazine
Dai Zai Mun (大仔文) - Some of my college friends, especially hostel-mates and roommates, call me that
Mun Zai (文仔) - Little Mun - Some of my colleagues, elder or younger, call me that... It seems my age does not disqualify me from the name...
Yau Mun (有蚊) - There's mosquito - thanks to my Godmother who derived my Chinese name
Ada Nyamuk - See "Yau Mun". Some colleagues call me that.

And the most recent one, thanks to my bunch of church friends:
YMC-Han - derived from my office email id YMCHAN - mimicking YMCA. Yesss... they use the song to sing my name! :-P
Da Wei Ba (大尾巴) / Big Tail - derived from my Mandarin translation of my Christian name!

Internet nick:
Blindfolded - my very first and ongoing net nick, and that's why this blog is named so. :-)
Jesse - David's father, you know, King David the youngest son of Jesse of Bethelhem... no no no no... this is one of my earliest fake name to fool around during chat!
No_Name_91 - One of My Yahoo nick.
munyc - Yahoo and Live ID

Hahaha!!! Tell you what, I might be in my 70s and yet people will call me Mun Zai... Actually it's better than "Uncle" or "Ah Pek". :-P
