Mine is just an alias name. I have it everywhere. It's just easy to remember. plus when I studied Spanish they made you pick a Spanish surname so that you could really get into being and studying Spanish... Guess it's stuck really.
My nickname is 'Rooty' -- it has been since I was about 17! My friend Seb gave it to me because we were at college with a bunch of Germans, who couldn't pronounce my name (which is Ruth) - they struggled with the 'th' sound, so they'd call me 'Root'! and Root became Rooty. Then, my first boyfriend turned that into 'Rootyboots', or sometimes, just 'Boots'. I ditched the boyfriend, but kept the name!
OH and all his family call me 'Rooty'... sometimes I think they forget what my real name is! I like it better than Ruth, though!
