Crazy Nicknames

Everyone in this world starts off with a birth name after they are born. Usually down the road everyone picks up a nickname of some sort. It may be some adoring term, or it may be because of how you look, or something peculiar that you did or do. There are nice nicknames that everyone likes, and then there are some not so nice nicknames.

The idea for this hub came to me after I watched the new reality television show "Here comes Honey Boo Boo". Just about everyone on that show has a nickname of one kind or another. There's of coarse Honey Boo Boo, and then there's her three older sisters, Pumpkin, Chickadee, and Chubbs or Chubbette. Lastly lets not forget Sugar Bear and Mama.

Where I work is no different than most other places, and there are a wide variety of coworkers there. After all it takes all kinds of people to make to make the world go around. Just about everyone has a nickname of one kind or another where I work. Here's just a few examples of folks That I work with who have crazy nicknames, and how some of them got their name. There's Dinky who carried his name from childhood. We all call him Dink for short. Dinky was in high spirits recently after a supervisor informed him that the company had approved his thing. We all congratulated him on his thing, even though no one was quite sure what the thing was. There's Boo-Boo who picked up her name because she's always dropping stuff from off her forklift, and then says that she made a boo boo.

There's a Lips, because he can never keep a secret. There's a Big head, and a Hog head who's two names are very self explanatory. There's Rock Star who's a darn good guitar player early in the evening, before he has too much to drink. There's a Dude love who got his name from the television show Saturday Night live. There's a Water Bottle, because he never goes anywhere without a bottle of water in his hand. He constantly drinks water religiously, and he probably consumes more water then anyone else on this planet. But believe it or not, his own doctor has informed him that he needs to start drinking more water. Even Water Bottle himself can't figure that crazy one out. We also call him Bottle, and Bot for short. There's a Tool bag, because he's always sporting a tool bag on his belt where ever he travels. Obviously he just likes being seen with tools, because he doesn't even know which end of a hammer to hold.

There are those with animal nick names as well. There's a bird, and he picked up that name because he likes to whistle. There's a rabbit, and actually he didn't pick up his nickname because he's fast, but rather because he eats like a rabbit. There's a Stinky, and I'm sure you can imagine how he picked up his name. A matter of fact I'm sure most work places have somebody with a nickname along those lines. There's an electrician who earned the name Sparky, because every time he works on an electrical panel sparks go flying. There's also a Beetle Juice, Little Dickie, Neighbor, Bull, and Wild Bill to name just a few of the other coworkers who I work with.

There's plenty more crazy nicknames where these came from as well, but some of them I can't put in print here on the hub pages. If you have some crazy nicknames don't be shy, and share them with us all in the comment section below.

TheHoleStory, I enjoyed your hub. At BIFC we had a "Fast Freddy." He had a thing for the young ladies. In my family we have, Stretch, Bones, Bubba, Scooter, and Sashquash (long arms). Mine was "Trouble" for a while. Not what you think. I had a younger brother and when he was little when things were quiet, I would ask, "Are you in trouble?" When he started talking, he thought my name was Trouble. Nice hub. Good job.

I once knew a kid we called"Eddie Napkin Head". He acquired the name one night while at White Castle's where he got into a fight and was hit on top on the head with a napkin holder- hence the name! To this day I believe this is why they are now bolted to the tables :)

Nick names used to be so big years ago, now people tend to name their kids so that they can't be labeled with any. I still think they pick them up when they get around peers. You have mentioned some really good ones in your post. Enjoyable to read.

Interesting Hub! I've really never been one for nicknames. I was called "Spanky" for a while when I was young, but losing weight took that one away. It's cool that you can get away with it in this restrictive, politically correct society. Good Job!

It seems nicknames today are more derogatory than years ago. My dad used to call me "mushy" cause I was always kissing and hugging...then in school they called me "legs" for a while because I had long legs. Now I'm Till or Tillie on hubpages.

This is an interesting topic and I voted it up, funny, and interesting.

This was so funny! ^_^ Thank you for the laugh. My mom used to call me Sasha Lee Bobby... I don't know why she added bobby onto my first and middle name... In school I would get called salsa, sausage, sash.. (because people had a hard time saying my name Sasha, pronounced Sash-uh, not the russian saush-uh) Oh and mean names that I wont say because of my larger chest size.

For my kids... My son gets called Cookie because when he was a wee baby he used to make a hard C sound and I would make it then turn it into CCCookie and he just thought it was hilarious. My baby Alyssa gets called Lysa almost all the time. When they're being difficult I call them Mr/Miss. Cranky-pants, Oh and I love to add Pooh onto their names... Jadey-pooh, Lysa-pooh... ^_^ what fun to think about.. Wonderful hub. Voted a bunch and shared!

Re your tramway sign,

I came across a regulation applying to Plymouth trams. That's old Plymouth in little of England. This stated how much dynamite the construction workers working on building Plymouth Dockyard could carry on a tram.

We used to have old fashioned nick names and no one bothered. Now the trend is for smart, short yet attractive names. Parents purchase books on such subject so that the kids do not feel let down later when grown up. Voted up and excellent. Keep it up. Please read my hubs and comment threon

When I was a young girl, I got the nickname Weird Harold not because I was big like the cartoon character by Bill Cosby or even because I said "Hey, hey, hey" but because I had wild and weird hair. It could have been worse. I managed to out live the nickname and most people don't know about it.
