I feel way too clever about this
Upon meeting some guy named Johnathan last week (specifically not just John), he asked me if I prefer Jeff or Jeffrey. I told him that I am Jeff, free of the frees, so as to not uses the “rey” when addressing me.
And just now, chilling at my school’s cafe, some other aquantance addressed me as Jeff Free of the frees.
I have unknowingly given myself a nickname.
