It's going to take me awhile to get accustomed to automatically knowing "Obie", "O'Bie", "OB", "B'OB", "Billy O", "BillO" is always Bill O'Brien.

I'm not knocking nicknames or those that use it, but just commenting from my perspective that my mind does not automatically connect it right now.
I'm with you. O'Brien isn't that many characters to type. Plus, I don't personally know the man, so I don't have the right to call him what his friends call him.
...but that's just me
