Most Thais have their nicknames called by their friends or family. It's not their name on government paper, but used more often than their real name.

The most names of Thais are very long and hard to remember. Sometims Thais real name is just translated from Chinese to Thai, so it would make nonsence or sound humorous.

Their name may be just shorten from their real-name, but mostly there is no relation between their real name and nickname. The most nicknames are typically one syllable or two. Their name translated in English would have meaning like frog, friend, banana, or girl/boy.

The name is given by older family members, or friends.
