I'm lucky in that my childhood nicknames don't embarrass me too unduly much.
(The odd nickname my sister and I gave one of our grandmothers, which our parents still use to refer to her, decades later? Ugh. Another story.)
A post from Literary Hub doesn't include whether famous writers' childhood nicknames embarrassed them, per se, but most of them are a bit goofy and perhaps a little insulting.
At any rate, Lit Hub invites you to read the nicknames and then guess which author they belonged to.
