I don't like putting too much of my personal identity online (*cough* facebook *cough*), and my first name is part of that. If, for example, Maffe would come to visit Germany, I'd tell him my address and invite him for a visit, but I really don't think that anybody has to know these facts about me. It comes down to personal preference, but I don't like it.
When it comes to a nickname for the longer nicknames, my real name isn't shorter than "Arzoroc", so that wouldn't help you out, and "Baum" is the same length as "Arzo", so if you think that 4 letters is short
enough, go with one of them.
Now that I think about it, I know Cyril's, Clexzor's, Maffe's and devvv's first names. And obviously Willy's, Mike's, Rod's, David's etc. But I really don't care about those names to be honest, and as long as I haven't got anything to do with that person, a nickname is perfectly fine for me.
