Call me Kal

So, I’m changing my posting name to my latest, and what will probably end up being most durable, nickname. “Kal” is becoming quite popular in my work and social life. Normally I reject or avoid nicknames because they can lead to unnecessary informality. I never found “Kikou,” “Ninou,” or “Kha” (some nicknames for Khalid and Nouredine) fitting or desirable. “Kal” is fine, and I don’t mind institutionalizing it. Kal does not rhyme with “call”; it’s Kal as in Kal Penn, but not in imitation.
