Weekend Wound Up: Nickname edition


I love nicknames, and tend to use them voraciously. Not in the George Bush sort of way, which I find condescending and obnoxious. More in the "awww shucks" kind of way, with nothing but good intentions. (Unless of course you're a rabid Republican, in which case my nicknames for you will be anything but flattering.)

Got a nickname . . . either now or from the past? Do tell!

My favorite nickname from WAY back

was when I served as the navigator on the USS Charleston (LKA 113). My nickname was Plots-man. (My real name is Protzman.)

They even gave me a slogan: Protzman the Plots Man. You got 'em, he plots 'em.

Oh how cute

My brothers gave me my nickname.

Bitch. I've done my best to live up to it. :)

Watch it now

No one has EVER gotten away with calling anything even remotely related to me "cute."

I'll try to remember that.....

I had a few viscious ones

I had a few viscious ones from my older sister, now that I think about it.

Yeah....my younger brother had it rough

He got it from both older siblings.

We called my older brother Chuckie Duck.....through high school. He wasn't pleased. Took a break while he was in college b/c freshman and sophomore year I always wanted to borrow his '67 Mustang since I couldn't take my car to school.

When he got married and his wife tried to change him to a "Charles".....my younger brother and I went back to Chuckie Duck. He's now divorced. I swear it wasn't something I said.

I went by Chuck in college, then in grad school

It has partially stuck because I met my wife then and she still calls me Chuck, so people here it and start calling me that. Some poker friends took to calling me Chuck-Rob, then CR. I regret going to Chuck now.

that's funny, Betsy

My brothers gave me the very same nickname!

I, too, do my very best to keep the standard high.

Republicans love Nicknames?

You got that right!

Retard Billy Boy Graham,

Les "Enron" Merritt,

Patty The "Man" McHenry,

Flipper Tobacco Hayes,

Larry "Rocky" Brown,

Art "The Pope",

John The Boy in the Hood,

All of mine are dumb

I was Sam Bam Cunningham in middle school because I could kick a soccer ball more than half the length of the pitch.

More often than not, people exaggerate my full name as a nickname so that we can all have fun with it. aka The Right Honourable Samuel Reid Spencer the Ninth Esquire, Ambassador Plenipotentiary and Extraordinary.

I think the other names are too frattish for such an esteemed forum. No, seriously.

I always wanted to be the avenging cowboy hero—that lone voice in the wilderness, fighting corruption and evil wherever I found it, and standing for freedom, truth and justice. - Bill Hicks

Heh

Sam Bam Cunning Ham. Funny.

:)

Henceforth you are to be called......

Studly genius.

As a baby, Messy Lessy,

for obvious reasons. Your face and clothes are intended to wear your food, right? So what's the problem?

In high school:Tasteless (for Bland) and because everyone from Maryland is taste-challenged. It's our state motto.

In college, almost everyone knew me as Flakes, because I kept losing my key and other assorted flakiness.

After college: My husband was known as the Birdman so I became Birdie Bird or plain Birdie.

And now, in print, I'm DQ. Can't say which one I prefer . . .

I've had a few in my life. . .

In college, it was "Dry Rot," due to my sedentary drinking habits. My motto was "why go out when you can stay in?"

At my first job, they called me "Sleepy," due to my Mississippi accent and laid-back ways.

After I got married, my wife's family started calling me "Brain," a play on my first name that invariably has been misspelled this way throughout my life----by teachers on my report cards, consistently by one of my managers a few years ago, and, most recently, on a trade show name tag in big, bold letters. Awesome.

Nom de nick

I've had a few.

Trucker
I used to say "keep on truckin' " a lot.

Wiz Kid
I was a go to guy for NYC Zoning Codes at one place I worked.

Tony
A couple of friends and I started an improv group where we were all called Tony. The name stuck so we call each other Tony as do others who know us. People who don't know us are very confused when they find out our names aren't Tony but it makes for great conversation.
