Okay...let's here 'em
Everyone on this board has a screenname, but is it your nickname also? I'm sure with all of us on here, there has to be some doozies. ;) List your nickname and the reason for it. I'll go first, I have two:

LeeLee (My first name is Alicia, but my baby sister couldn't say it, hence....)

Reenie (My dad's nickname for me (besides "Baby Girl") because my middle name is Desiree)

A guy in college called me "Sergizmo" because my name is Serge and I like gizmos.

 

My nickname at work (machine shop) is "Bubbles" after the Trailer Park Boys character. For a while I didn't have perscription safety glasses and had these huge safety glasses over my normal glasses.

I eventually got perscription safety glasses (I don't like contacts), but there are still 2 people who call me Bubbles. Oh well.

Due to the sheer amount of Sports I have participated in over the years starting in elementary school, I have always had a nick name for every team I have played on no matter the sport.

 

Football/LaCrosse: "Doza" "Rush" or "Bumrusha", "A-train", "Big-A", "DoubleAA" "MO" (last name is Morris) Played both side of the ball. :cheesy:

Basketball: "Doza", "Dr.A", "Jordan Lite", "Mugsy", (defensive player of the year back2back2back in HSchool). :mug:

Soccer: "Doza", "Tha Dogg", "A-Train", "Diego", "Bigfoot". :help: :crazy:

Softball/Baseball: "Doza", "Monkey", "Hank", "Ernie", "TripleAAA", "DoubleAA", "Monster", "Mr. Bonds", "Rainmaker", "Busta", "Griff", this is all I can remember. :bb: :pimp:

Wrestling:My Coaches gave me the nickname "Doza" due to the fact that all 6 of my uncles excelled in wrestling and they saw me as just another "Mendoza" prospect, this followed me all through Elementary, Jr. & Sr. High School sports, I was also called "scrappy" but, My uncles called me "Duran" after my Uncle Cipriano's Pit Bull. bb2: ;) :cheesy:

Track: "Doza", "A-Train", "Carl". :good:

Boxing: "Doza", or "Mendoza". :crazy2: :vava: :help:

Martial Art: Honoring the sport as my instructors did, no nicknames were used unless training was complete, then they would start to spit "Doza". :cheesy: :nono:

Golf: I had all the confidence in the world due to my other activities and all the names that were given to me, I "THOUGHT" golf would be no different, HA....HAHA.....HAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHA.....Oh man, I suck, I suck really bad!!! no nicknames here except maybe what my uncles called me!

:help: :crazy: :crazy: :WTF:

 

Then of course I started to play without all the expectation of doing well, then I became a much better player, with no name calling.

When I was a kid, my friends called me "Strohs", as in the beer, or "Stridicles" (don't know why). My older brother like to call me "D" or "D day."

My nickname is Ditty Kong

 

Because my last name is Ditty, and Diddy kong is a video game character, so I'm now called Ditty Kong.

 

Another one is J Diddy (instead of P. Diddy)

 

By the way, you have no idea how many people have asked me "are you related to P. Diddy?"

 

I wouldn't say I love the nicknames, but they could be worse.

 

However, I really love it when someone I never met calls me Ditty Kong or asks me if I'm related to P Diddy- they always think they're so smart and creative to think of it, even though hundreds of people have already. It's kinda funny

 

Have you seen Office Space? My 2nd nickname reminds me of Michael Bolton in that movie. I laughed my head off when I watched that movie and heard that. :yahoo:

when I was living down south, the locals called me "Philly" because of my accent.

 

I usually go by Pete or Peter with no real preference. At work one guy calls me "Pete-ie" ... it drive me up a wall. this guy is either going to have to stop soon or else I'm going to have to hurt him... hehe

 

Also recently at work I have been refered to as "Popsicle Pete" because I work with our cryogenic systems. I don't mind that one but "Pete-ie" got to go!
