    To this day I am called by my family the name Poodie (please don't laugh lmao) My Mother was the one who gave the name because she said when i was born i was a fat little baby that looked like Winnie The Pooh. I used to be embarrassed by it but now I have come to embrace it.

    How about you guys? Share your stories of your nicknames and how you've got them here if you'd like to. Let's make this a fun thread icon_smile.gif

    JPtheBITCH saidMy nickname in college was "Beast".
    No, not for that reason. It's actually a sort of corruption of my last name.



    Cool. icon_cool.gif

    Chacho: Spanish slang for Mochacho - meaning boy; cause I was the youngest of my siblings, and my boyish looks into my teens.

    My last name is Cocco, so most of my friends call me JoCo. I also have quite a few people that call me Monkey. It was the inspiration for my Halloween outfit last year icon_biggrin.gif

    Nabob is a concoction of the first and middle name that was put together by someone in college who was trying to fun at my expense. I loved the name and started using it as did everyone else.

    Whipsy. Because I was whipping this guy.

    Carpetlicking Environmentalist. Because I would recycle my friends' bottles when they were lazy, and something about licking something off the carpet in university... don't remember, was drunk.

    Jinx or Jinxsie

    My folks gave it to me and it stuck. It conveniently plays off of my last name and that's what I just tell people since if I were to tell them the real reason they'd be throwing salt at me and buying stock in rabbit's feet, 4-leaf clovers and other charms. Coincidentally, I'm quite a lucky person. However, I can't exactly say the same for those around me.

    Rush-two martial arts instructors and my personal trainer all called me that.

    In sparring, I'd tend to rush in and usually ended up with bruises from it (learned my lesson after a bit!!) and when my trainer made me do things like burpees and stuff I hated, I'd rush through and my form would go to shit. And yes, he'd make me redo them slowly with good form after (part to learn, part punishment).

    And I'm a nerd and loved Rush from Megaman. Best robot dog sidekick EVAR!!!!!!111oneONE

    All that's the reason I have a tat of Rush, too. Yay, nerd ink!

    Also, my capoeira name is Touro/Tourinho...means bull/little bull. Got it cuz I used to play really linear/direct instead of flowing and well, I really like headbutting people.

    Raptor, coz I ran fast when I played soccer. Also because I love Jurassic Park and I love quoting that movie.

    Also because when people stare at me, I just stare right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side! Ok I'll stop.
