Why do people give their child a name and a nickname? Just make the nickname it's official name if that's what you are going to call it.

Because most kids don't like serious names while young (like Finley) but will prefer it when they're older and in the 'adult' world.
When young, I was called Andy but now that I actually work, its nice not being called Andy by my boss/co-workers.

I see your point, but I still don't think the parents are the ones that should pick their child's nicknames.

What, do you want the teacher to do it? Nicknames are generally established before the kid's able to think about it. By the teacher, by mispronunciation, etc. They only actually know how to pick one when they're like 12. (And then they pick stupid ones like swagman mcepic douche.)
