あだな vs. 通称つうしょう: Are They Really interchangeable?

What is the difference between “あだな and 通称つうしょう“? Both of them are not real names. Which is the right word for your friends: あだな or 通称つうしょう? After reading this, you would be answering this question. Let me introduce what their subtle differences are and how you correctly use them such as native speakers today!

[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] Nickname / 绰号 / 별명 / Biệt danh

“あだな(あだ)” means “Nickname” which is used as the meaning of “an informal name for only someone, especially a name that you are called by your friends or family, usually based on your real name or your character”. For instance, “Mike” would be “Mikey” in English and “Yuka(ゆか)” would be “Yuka-chan(ゆかちゃん)”, “Tatsuya(たつや)” would be “Tatsuya-kun(たつやくん)” in Japanese. Basically, “___chan(___ちゃん)” is used for girls and “___kun(くん)” is used for boys. Furthermore, “あだな(あだ)” is used for only people, not things.

[wp-svg-icons icon=”checkmrk-circle” wrap=”i”] 通称つうしょう (tsuushou)

[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] AKA/Common Name / 俗称 / 속칭 / Tên thường gọi

通称つうしょう” means “AKA or Common Name” which is used as the meaning of “an informal name for someone or something, especially a name that something is called by everybody. For instance, “Pocket monster” would be “Pokemon”, “McDonald’s” would be “Mickey D’s, McDick’s and Macca’s”. So, “ポケットモンスター” would be “ポケモン” and “マクドナルド” would be “マック(in Tokyo) and マクド(in Osaka)”. Basically, 通称つうしょう is used for something or a company’s name etc, not for people. And “通称つうしょう” sounds a little bit formal than あだな. If you don’t want to use “通称つうしょう“, you would be able to use “___は○○とばれています(___ is called ○○.)” instead of “___の通称つうしょうは○○です(___ also known as ○○)”.
