The only time I was really known by my last name was in JROTC. If around parents who insist their children use Mr. and Ms./Mrs., I insist they say Mr. Denis.

I'm horrible enough with first names that I rarely know friends' last names if I haven't known them for at least a year.

I find that I am sometimes tempted to refer to friends by their last names simply because last names are often so much more interesting than last names. Who want to call someone David or Sue or Mary or John when you can call them Jablonski, Mazarakis, Van Lander, or Detweiler?
denii or deniss

Hah, I suppose the thing is that if friends have rather common names, nicknames based off their first names quickly became apparent.

College examples: Mattchew, Dickie, Brachu.
