Quite a few of the men of my age around here are known by the Christian name of their father.

No,not an old custom but something they started doing in secondary school.

Junior school it was 'Big Ed' .......

No further nicknames until I started 'long term' work ...... and that has stayed with me even unto today, amen.

In fact, its what i have on a number of official documents and letters. There are a lot of people I've worked with over the years who don not know my 'real' name. My current work pass only shows my nickname, not my forename. Funny old world, innit !
