What’s a good nickname for Rebecca other than Becky or Becca?
When I have a substitute teacher they ask if I go by Becky, but I hate the idea of going by that. I also don’t want teachers to call me Becca since I go by that with my friends and family and it feels kinda personal. At the same time, I don’t want them to call me Rebecca, because to me it feels cold and distant. My middle name is an old family last name that doesn’t lend itself well for first name use. Any suggestions? Should I just change my name?
I don’t feel connected to the name “Rebecca” anymore, so I want to go by something else. I’ve tried Becca and Bex, but they don’t quite fit me either. I tend to do all of my socializing at school (before quarantine, at least), so that’s the example I used in the question. It’s not that deep, I’m just looking for advice.

IF your not going to use the real name then do not name her it.. IF you gonna call her Becky then NAME HER THAT.. People are stupid when they do not use the name they picked for their kid and call them something else.. IF you dont wanna use the name you picked then legally change it. I grew up being called by a nick name my whole life and when I went into the Military and my real name was used it took me a long time to get use to answering to it. USE THE REAL NAME.

Maybe you could try going by your middle name? Also, Reba, Becky, Bee, Ruby, Bibi, Ray

It's very hard once you get older to get people to accept & call you by a "new" nickname.. Mine is Bev & I can't imagine anyone calling me anything else.. they just won't.

What does everyone else in the class call you? Or you're planning on having a different name depending on who's taking the class? Troll better.
