* yeah, it's true
* it's just a culture of fun and preferences for terms of endearment
* it works pretty much the same way as nick names you can get if you're in the military. People think its "cute"
* also a lack for a more global view which really doesn't bother to check for possible cross cultural faux pas

And...

* fyi, I don't have a nick name. No one just bothered and I like it that way
