Initials as nickname in UK?

Hi, here in the states people sometimes go by their initials, as nicknames: J.R. Ewing (character on "Dallas"), A.J. Foyt (racecar driver?), etc. A friend in high school went by the nickname "LJ", since his name was John and he was friends with other guys named John and he was the smallest one, hence "little" John.

My question is, do people in the UK ever use their intials as their nicknames? Or is that an American thing? Thanks.
