When I was at primary school the creative nickname they gave me was "Julia-Caeser-the-lemon-squeezer".

And you?

I was Wally, from my surname.
I was a bit silly too!

The Where's Wally books came out 10 years later and I laughed

Everyone in our school had a nickname I was snakehead because I had very curly red hair. I liked my unique nickname it made me stand out from the crowd.

Flo or Flossy, I'm assuming because of my very fine, flyaway hair.
At high school, Olive Oyl, because I was so skinny.
In my 20s to mid-40s a friend called me Skeletor, weight again.
I'd hate to know what he'd call me now I've put on enough weight to not be a skinny anything!!
