"We're in Engineering. Call me Scotty."
– Montgomery Scott, 2369 ("Relics")

Scotty was a nickname both for Montgomery Scott and his counterpart in the alternate reality.

In the alternate reality, James T. Kirk regularly used the nickname and even used it to introduce Scott to Khan Noonien Singh in 2259. (Star Trek Into Darkness) In 2263 of the alternate reality, after Scott had met Jaylah on Altamid, she called him "Montgomery Scotty." (Star Trek Beyond)

The nickname Scotty was used by various shipmates of Scott during his service aboard the USS Enterprise and the USS Enterprise-A from the 2260s to the 2290s, including James T. Kirk, Leonard McCoy, Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Carolyn Palamas, Christine Chapel, Mira Romaine, Will Decker, and Pavel Chekov. It was even used in the official captain's log. (TOS: "By Any Other Name"; Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Unlike all other bridge officers, Spock never used the name Scotty onscreen.

Scott also occasionally used the nickname himself. (TOS: "A Taste of Armageddon", "The Devil in the Dark", "Metamorphosis", "Mirror, Mirror", "Is There in Truth No Beauty?", "Day of the Dove", "That Which Survives"; TNG: "Relics")

It was similarly used by his junior engineers in Scott's absence. (DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")

He was later called "Mister Scotty" by the Pandronian Honorary Commander Ari bn Bem in 2269. (TAS: "Bem")

In 2369, when Captain Jean-Luc Picard called Montgomery Scott "Captain Scott," Scott told Picard instead to call him Scotty. Scott later made the same remark to Geordi La Forge, reminding him that they were in Engineering at the time and formality was not needed. Only La Forge and William T. Riker ultimately called Scott by this nickname. (TNG: "Relics")

In 2380 on the USS Cerritos, Commander Jack Ransom was telling Captain Carol Freeman about people that lived during the TOS era, and one of them he mentioned was Scotty. (LD: "No Small Parts")
