The present article deals with the study and analysis of the titles among the female and male students. Nicknames are those groups of informal names which in addition to the main names are added to a person. The data has been collected in sample volume of 60 girls and 60 boys in high schools. Totally 347 nicknames were extracted. After inserting the data into SPSS program by using dependent t test, the data were interpreted. The findings of the research showed that the nicknames were originated in four languages of Turkish, Persian, English and Arabic. In this component, we observed the vast application of Turkish language in giving a nickname (46.69 percent) by the male group and the vast application of Persian language by the female group (52.40 percent). From the perspective of identity (local, national and transnational), we also witnessed the high frequency of nicknames (42.54 percent) in the male groups to the local identity and the greatest number of belonging with (46.38 percent) of female nicknames to the national identity. From the aspect of reasons for giving nicknames (contemplation, affection, satire and no reason), in both male and female groups, we observed the high application (70.16 (male) and 53.61(female) contemplation. Finally, from the viewpoint of the intention of the nickname giver, we classified the nicknames under consideration into daily talks, media, taboo and religious ones. The general result was that in all mentioned components, there was a significant relation between the variable of gender and giving a nickname.
