Guy's name was Richard.
It suited him very well.
well my boy T-Shits
This kid at my high school was nicknamed Twink
Same. He was also called twinkie though
I wonder if we went to the same high school 😂
I went to hs in Texas
Not even close 😂
When I dabbled in the drug life I met a lot of interesting people with peculiar names. When you deal with street people, everyone has their own nicknames.
Renegade (he would pace in circles saying “I’m Renegade mother fucka!”)
Bug’s Life. (She was constantly high and her eyes were always bugged out)
B-15. (This guy didn’t have anything about him that stood out, cool dude nonetheless)
Being sober is cool. I kinda miss the crazy people I met sometimes. It’s great to finally be around people that aren’t desperate.
Knew a young dude that only went by papa. Everyone, even people twice his age called him papa and he refused to tell anyone his real name. Eventually he got carded at a bar and we got to see his ID, his name was Reginald.
It's such a strange story. Why papa? Why the fuck was his name Reginald? Shit I'd probably go by something else too.
Slapper. On his 18th birthday he was kicked out of a strip club for slapping the strippers arse.
Star Wars Kid. Still no idea why we called him that. I don't even think he liked Star Wars that much.
Neckbone. He had a big Adam's apple
Duck and Helmet. Duck because he ran like one. Helmet because when we were kids he didn’t wear one while we were biking. Crazy, I know.
Well, does kinda make sense
To this day the 2 stupidest nicknames ever 😅
Do we know each other, because my best friend’s nickname is also Duck.
Perhaps we do!
jack, is that you?!?
Met this cat in a bar, he was a local. His nickname was Moose Knuckle. He would always tell a story to the newbies at the bar, he would use his hands to describe lady parts. He said, you've had the beaver, you've had the camel toe......but have you had the moose Knuckle!? He passed away from a drunken spell over the rail road tracks. Miss that guy but he was definitely a character in real life.
Really cute girl I know is nicknamed Gary.
She used to make the SpongeBobs pet snail noise all the time.
Steele Dave, Gravy
No idea why he was referred to as this.
A girl used to call me sid monkey
Boner. It started as t-bone and evolved to boner. I just couldn’t call him that, but it didn’t bother him that others did.
He was great in wandavision next time you see him tell him that
Guy at work. We call him dildo balls. Cause he was as useful as balls on a dildo.
During high school, a girl in the town over was nicknamed "the hole".
She did it to herself.
A guy my dad grew up with was called Short Pants
My parents called me “chiki” meaning small in Spanish. And I’m about to grow taller than my mom and almost the height of my dad
Say what now?
That was my nickname
Dare I ask how it came about?
It started as jerm, then jerm-bank, then sperm-bank...then just sperm cause it was simpler
There was a homeless man in my town called 'Survivor'. The chavs named him that because they made a game where if they found him their prize was that they got to beat him up.
Edit: this isn't even the most grim thing I can remember about my home town.
Gowie. Sounds like “Cow E”
It’s not even close to sounding like his name and no one remembers why or how it started.
Just that Gowie has always been Gowie for the past 30 - 40 years.
Actually I have a guy that works for me that I gave a nickname. Long story short he decided to brag about bringing home a rather large girl and he didn’t have condoms so he used Saran Wrap. That’s the day that Matt became Saran Wrap
My friend is named Meat and it's not penis related at all just a chubby Italian dude
Winkie, I misunderstood and called her Twinkie.
Poor girl was rather upset.
Butt Crack Ciganski
My dad nicknamed my sister ‘codmoth’ because she used to ‘flutter around like a moth’ as a kid and looked like a cod when she cried apparently. The nickname has stuck around for 35 years so…
A guy I used to work with was telling me a tale about his previous job in the merchant navy. He said that the ship's captain referred to him as Ted. I asked him "Why did he call you Ted when your name's Ian?". Apparently it was short for Shithead.
I have a friend who's nickname is Stinky. Her real name is Gabriella and in primary school she got called Gabrismella, then that got shortened to Smelly. Then that got changed to Stinky.
The story that I heard is that he went to a high school house party, got super drunk, swollwed a mouthful of chew, passed out in the shower and then shit and vomited all over himself. When he woke up, he walked down the hall leaving shitty handprints on the wall as he tried to keep himself from falling.
He went to college in a different state to try to get away from the nickname but eventually it caught up with him there too. You probably never live down a fail like that.
Went to college with a guy named Samir - everyone called him Pap.
There was a kid at summer camp they called Sug-a-fool-a-funs. Which was Snuffleupagus backwards. I’ve asked a few people but none knew the origin.
I used to call Arab mate of mine "Bob" because his name was too long, plus if it was abbreviated, thats what it would be
I had a co-worker that everyone referred to as "Slab". It was months before I found out his real name, but I honestly don't recall it now. All I remember is that his name was "Slab".
He was kind of a big guy, but not *that* big. It was just one of those nicknames that stuck, I guess. Even the boss called him "Slab".
Knew a guy in high school that everybody called "Fluff". He had reddish blonde hair that was super curly and fluffy.
Another guy was called Spanky. The Little Rascals was still popular at the time.
Played football with a guy named Devon, he was a really big dude like chubby not muscular but he was pretty nice and big for middle school, we were at practice one day and he was dying after running, this man literally reached up his jersey (I’m guessing into his rolls) and pulls out a smaller juice box, literally everyone called him fridge after this
Middle aged redneck dude called Culvert Monkey the Roadkill Junkie, or just Culvert for short
I hung around with a cool dude for a while who's nickname was PLATANO! And he would always say it like that: PLATANO!
We had a girl called kit-kat. It was because everyone had had a finger.
Also had a guy called sloth, G3 (Graham the ginger gangsta), basket, sample, fire breather (cause he talked so much shit), Oxo and bisto (brothers, because the longer they stood there, the thicker they got), Shroom Gnome (had a bad trip and thought his t-shirt was eating him, got his mum to take him to hospital), pigeon dave, big gay si, zambeezie (pigeon Dave's dad), meat head (he had a big head), mong (full title Mitchell the Manby mongout).
I haven't thought about that lot in 15 years, what a wild time that was.
Wobbly he was disabled.
A child in elementary was called Bambi.
Her mother died in a car accident.
I knew a guy that everyone called moon god, he got the nickname because he was a regular guy during the day but somehow turned into a really active and lucky guy at night when it came to dating, money, and getting into fun situations. All of it was extremely coincidental and out of nowhere, so they called him moon god because he the night made him into a superhero
I was like 15 and sheltered. The kid down the street from me was called beaner. I had never heard of it before. I asked him if it was short for something and he legit said no, I have always been Beaner. I was like cool. 2 years later I go to his front door, ring the doorbell and ask his very Asian mother if beaner was home. She was so confused. He looked Mexican, his dad was Mexican. His real name was John. I have to live with the knowledge I called a kid A racist name because I didn’t know any better for years… he laughed and told me he knew I didn’t know what it meant and that’s why it was so funny.
Worked with a chain-smoking alcoholic- we just called him ‘Chronic’ ..
This kid at my school had red hair People called him lighthouse
We called a kid "picky" because he would sit there most of the day picking his nose and eating it.
It's still his nickname now and he's 32.
I thought I was the only one not getting a reference or something, so I was too afraid to ask why he was called that. He was a full metal guy, totally into satanic and nordic stuff. When he got married, I learned his real name was Christian.
I guess with all the metal and satanic stuff, Christian wasn't really fitting, so he probably just chose Skö because it sounds nordic (and let's be honest, kinda cool)
I forgot about the best one: "Gamsi"
"Gams" means mountain goat in our language and he had an absurdly long beard, but just on his chin. So just a foot long, thin stripe. So of course everyone would call him "Gamsi", he had a goat beard, never questioned it.
When he candidated for some students' head position at university, I learned that "Gams" was his real last name. It blew my mind.
ilu...(this was their official name btw)😖
Jizzy. This girl named Isabelle in high school. She loved being called it.
We called a bloke in our group of mates "Cindy" as a nick name, because we all though he looked Down Syndrome, however he was smart and a good laugh and got he dick wet a bit.
