"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")

Q nicknamed Kathryn Janeway "Kathy", an appellation his son also picked up, adding the title of "aunt". (VOY: "Death Wish", "The Q and the Grey", "Q2")
