    Is it okay?

    And if this nickname is a actual "name" but its easier to say/remember than your first name. E.g. your name is Sophia but you make everyone call you Lucy.

    or is it just weird?

    If it makes you happy... :dontknow:

    Not something you see very often though. One of my classmates always convinced substitute teachers that his name was Lebron (after Lebron James) when his real name was nothing like it.

    It seems a bit unusual, and I personally don't know anyone who does that. But I don't really see a problem with it

    Nothing wrong with it i have done it a few times. If you feel comfortable being called with a different name then go ahead. Dont legally change it just in case you want to go back using your old name.
