Are Nicknames Inevitable?

Parents carefully choose their child's name, but that doesn't mean people will call the kid it. Nicknames are invented everywhere from the delivery room to the schoolyard by friends, strangers, and foes. For better or worse, monikers are created because of the way youngsters look and act or situations they end up in. And sometimes, the title is altogether random. There are moms and dads who try to stop the practice before it begins by requesting people call their children by their given names. What's your opinion?
