Nicknames.....?

#1 Postby robert » Thu Nov 17, 2005 1:58 am

Hello vegan friends,

As you've probably noticed, I tend to sign each post with a different nickname. I've had many throughout my life. I'll share some here and please feel free to share yours as well. I'm actually quite curious because some I've heard are really funny.

So here are some of mine. Some cool, others maybe not so much, but nicknames nonetheless:

Cheekey Monkey
Keegan The Vegan
Robbie 2 Hottie
Cheekies
Cheek's
Lesser White (LW)
Flockert
Flock of Seagulls
Flock
Robster
Robatron
Thin Thin Flat Him
Big Big Fat Him
A whole series of Thin Thin "something" Him names
Dupe
Guliermo

I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones that come to mind.

Anyone else have some nicknames they want to share.....or come up with nicknames for others like Michael Hobson and Daywalker did for me. 8)

-Robster

As everyone in our little apartment knows, I am just "Vegetable" (abbreviated as, "Vegetable"- :wink: to Topher) - christened by the boy at our first meeting, and it stuck.
8)
The rest of my friends call me:
Megs
Veg
Ruth
Meggers
Megaroo
O'Con
Ms. O'Connor (I have one friend in particular we're always jokingly very formal)
And, my personal favorite, The Big O (though sadly the originator of that one had to be kicked out of my life, so it doesn't get used much anymore)
That covers the most common ones I think. I answer to any of the above.

Hey Kollision,

I'm not sure if I spelled it correctly, but Guliermo was just "part" of a longer nickname from one of my best friends Desi who is from Bulgaria. I didn't want to write the whole thing incase I spell it correctly and anyone here speaks Bulgarian. But it's a funny name :shock: :lol:

There is a story behind all of them of course....maybe in time, I'll share those stories. :wink:

Unless you're pronouncing it Gully-ermo you probably want to throw another L in there, and switch the I. Try Guillermo :)

LOL thats what popped into my head to! I was like, "Rob, when did you turn hispanic?" haha.

BTW Rob, thats the first time I heard of that name. I don't think the name itself is from Hindi or whatever language it came from. Is it Bulgarian?

Heres some names (some were when I was in school so not all are current):

Fatty (From a Desi friend of mine)
Buckitty (thats Donkey on Hindi/Urdu and my friends and I would call each other that)
Big K (From you guys)
Big Guy (here as well as other places)
Koll (here as well as other places)
Kal (friends)
Kollision (thats actually where I got this user name from, was in Middle School from a guy named Henry. I dunno how he came up with that name, but I love it!)
Buff Guy
Kalanoids (apparently my friend thought of that one machine that goes up the rectum, and thought that was the name, and started calling me that. I think the real name is colonoscopy?)

Hrmm...thats all I can think of.

Yeah Guillermo means "William." So I guess technically Will might be "Guill" :)

LOL!

I seriously do not know how names are translated over to another language. Doesn't even sound the same! Especially our Hawaiian names...makes no sense!

LOL! :D


I never had a nickname. Always just Alex ;)

Maybe that's why i like to use different cool screenames ;)

I'm Daywalker at three or four boards, Virius at one, Traveller at another. Kryptonite V is my new favourite - vegan Kryptonite ;) I use that on three boards (kryptonite is the only thing that can bring down Superman 8) ).


Oh, i actually had a nickname in the Muay Thai classes. The master and i became close friends. His name was also Alex, and he used to give everyone a nickname. At first, he called me "Soya" (for obvious reasons ;) ) Later "Soyapop" :lol: I never liked to be called that way ;) It was a joke meaning Soya being as strong as Popeye, who eats only spinache ;) And i ate pop cereals :D

For a time i used Soya and Soyapop as screennaems, too.


K-oz has names for me :D But i won't tell you :P
No one said it would be easy.
