Knickname also spelled nickname, is an alternative version of the proper term for a name added to or substituted for the proper name of a person, place, etc., as in affection, ridicule, or familiarity.

Proper use of the term Knickname is demonstrated when one places another persons "Knickname" or "Nickname" in between their first and last name.
