"Nicknames generally denote fondness, a diminutive shared between friends."

A nickname was a name other than an individual's real one, usually chosen by others, such as a lover (TOS: "The Man Trap"), a friend (DS9: "The Alternate", VOY: "Equinox") or a sibling. (ENT: "Cold Station 12")

Though most were a sign of the name caller's affection (DS9: "The Alternate"), some nicknames were given cruelly, such as Wesley Crusher's bestowing of the moniker "Broccoli" on Reginald Barclay. When Data argued that nicknames were usually given as a sign of fondness, Geordi La Forge agreed and put an end to the "Broccoli" name calling. (TNG: "Hollow Pursuits")

Some athletes also had nicknames, such as Jake "The Slider" Sisko. (DS9: "Take Me Out to the Holosuite")

Many of the following nicknames are examples of the more unusual nicknames, such as those that go beyond the typically 'understood' ones, such as "Ben is short for Benjamin", etc.
