If you could give your companion a nickname, what would it be and why?

Personal Answer: I called Torian "Turian" pretty much the entire time I was leveling my Powertech.

While levelling my Agent alongside my friend's female Bounty Hunter, Torian picked up the unflattering nickname of 'Princess'
There is no try.

Yes I would give my companion a nickname. I've always thought that being able to do this and have it reflect in game would alleviate the amount of companions running around with the same name and also make it more personal to each individual player.

As for specific names for a companion...time to give this a little more thought
All the way to Alderaan!

ok i'll go through my toons for my main companion.

On my shadow tank, I'd call theran "hippy" , after all he keeps spamming that 'he's a pacifiist"

My sentinal uses, t7 all the time and I'd call him 'little buddy'

my commando uses m1 4x and he's "big buddy;

my sawbones, calls bowdar, 'big guy'

my operative calls Kaliyo "home wrecker'

my inquisitor runs around with khem all the time, and calls him the "mummy"

my bounty hunter just calls mako 'sweetie'

my juggernaught is happy to call jaessa, 'jaes'

Not quite a nickname, but when Mako isn't doing anything I say, "MAKO! Make-O yo' self useful and run dis mission!"

Also since I refer to my Bounty Hunter as "Chieftain Righteous" his crew members gain similar names.

Mako = Sister Righteous
Torian = Kid Righteous
Gault = Ranger Righteous
Blizz = The Righteous Hood
Skadge = Bubba Righteous

I was just thinking that I might call Doc "Slick Nakai," although I'm not sure if the name fits quite right.

I like to call Jorgan "Lassie" because of who his Voice actor is. Sometimes I call Corso "Mr. Harpoon Gun" or Farmboy.

I call all healer comps "*** are you doing?" It's an odd name but it makes sense to me and I would really have to think what their actual names are.

I don't like most of the companions so there's very few I do really like (Jaesa and Kira come to mind), so I don't really get attached enough to give them nicknames I suppose.
Goodbye all, it's been fun. Time for me to move on (it's ok to cheer ).

I call Andronikos "Andy." I call Ashara "Worthless." Xalek is "Smash"

My agent needs to give Kaliyo a nickname... maybe "Hellraiser" or something since she has that pincushion head.
