Schlankwald.
Heres the context. Schlankwald is the German name (mostly regarded as the original, if you look back on the history) for the Creepypasta character normally known as Slender Man. I'm going to assume most people know who Slender Man is. My friend's call me this. while I am not overly tall, only slightly above average, according to my mother (I'm 5'5, or 173 centimetres), I have legs like an Enderman's, a neck that would put a giraffe to shame, and arms that look like they just came fresh out of the pasta factory. I trip over myself frequently.
Therefore, my short, stubby, marshmallow-limbed friend's, have decided that I am a Slender Being.
Also my online friend calls me Cheesy. I hate it. They don't care.

Not me, but my wife.

I had some dodgy pet name for her (I don't remember it) and she announced one day that she didn't like it and wanted to be called something else. So I maliciously complied and...

SNERTICUS

...was born! She hates it. And me. Very much indeed. I'm not changing it.

Okra.

Some context:

Okras are generally regarded as super disgusting by the vast majority of the people where I'm from, there are even jokes about it. And in my language (Greek), the word for okra sounds weird it's not a cute sounding word, not to mention it can be used as a (very light) insult in some cases.

So I was in a (first and only!) date with a guy with whom we started talking about okras, and we were discussing how awful they are, and he told me that the okra flower was pretty and he showed me a pic - meanwhile, I didn't even know okra plants had flowers - and it was nice, sure, but he went on to call me okra until the end of the date. I guess he thought it would make a cute story or something. Never saw him again (not because of the okra thing specifically, although that didn't help either).
