Okay, anyone want to help me out with an interesting nickname for a bloke? Think of men you know... (Look, Rob! I'm using THE "device".)

Also, much appreciated if you can state how that person got that nickname.

I knew a guy named Sticky. We called him that because he fell asleep one day in class at college. The prof called on him. He jumped up in his seat, and he had a sheet of paper stuck to the side of his face from the drool.

There was another guy we called The Lancer. He deflowered three different girls in three days.

My brother has had a few nicknames--

"The Three" because his last name is Wiseman

"Cookin' Bag" because when he was in college, that's all he could afford to eat. (His roommate was "Pot Pie.")

I need to know more about his character. The nickname should suit that!

I nickname almost everyone I meet (in my head anyway).The nickname is usually obvious to me. I've picked on personality traits, profession, hobbies, quirks, stature and appearance, and the person's given name.

My father was gangly in his youth and went by the nickname Skinny or just Skin.

I knew a guy people called Scooter. I think they just called him that because it was close to his real name (Scott.)

Doctor Funkenstein- cause he's just so funky
Park Ranger- a little out door-sy
Chutney- ummm. . .
Legend- exploits are legendary
Vice- because he's from Miami or just some dude who needs to find the 70's again to be happy. . .

Four out of the five are names I have had in my life. . . can you pick the one that doesn't fit? Also, guys are strange, a lot of times the nicknames they give each other are loosely based on their last name. . . or a derivative thereof. . . then they are bastardized. A nickname also gets shorter the closer the relationship to the person.

some nicknames of my friends

muffin- because he can be a little fruity
little b!tch- nuff said
smokey- I dunno why I gave him the name, it just seemed right
Kid Rock- long blonde hair

Tricky--because his name is Patrick, and his hobby is performing magic tricks


Fog--because he looks like Mel Torme (aka "The Velvet Fog") and he smokes like a chimney

Wow, some of these are great. I'll print this thread out and have fun with it.

He is short-tempered, smokes a lot of mj, jealous, controlling...

If he leaves a slimy trail, Slug ought to fit.

(That's one of our son's many, many nicknames.)

Maryn, who was calling him Tomato Head within minutes of his birth

I'm rather partial to Baby Turnip Head from "Lost" last season. :ROFL:

There's a footy player out here named Matt Hilder. His nickname is 'Waltzing'.

The golfer Aaron Baddeley, known for his loud pants (which, in golf, is saying something), got the nickname "Dresses".

I knew a guy called snake.
He was a "tight ***" that never had any money - leaving others to pick up his checks all the time. Not many people liked snake. It started as a secret name but soon everyone started using it to his face.

I had a friend who had American parents, but he was born in Australia, and his nickname is Boomer.

Deuce is my older son's nickname- he's a second, named after his Pappy.

Vance is a goody- and Alice.
That's all I can think of at the moment- besides the usual Big Boy, Pretty, Captain Obvious, etc...
