You don't get to choose a nickname, what's the most apt one you've been given?
Following on from the ‘I’d like this as my nickname’ thread…
You very rarely get to choose a nickname so what’s the best/most apt you’ve been given?
I used to work for a major Japanese machine tool manufacturer and, not long after I started, did a charity fashion show at a big ball (free booze, transport etc so well worth it). Once the major p-staker found out I was lovingly nicknamed ‘Naomi’ after Naomi Campbell..

I liked my nickname at university which seems to have died now.
I moved into a flat with another guy with the same 1st name, he was there 1st, so I had to have a nickname.
I am from GRIMSBY (yeah I know). So they started calling my haddock for a while (so funny), luckily this evolved to Haddook, and eventually Dook (or Duke) which I quite liked.Posted 4 years agohammeriteMember
I’ve had loads.
When I was a baby I had a blue baby grow with a white hood, so the first I had was “smurf”.
When I was a little older if asked what I wanted to eat I’d always ask for sausages, apart from I called them porkywalkies, so got the nickname “Porky”.
As a teenager my older brother was tiny, so he was nicknamed “maggot” among his mates I got called “worm” as they thought it went together.
Playing football once my mates were calling me by my surname with a y on the end, some lads who we didn’t know were playing thought my mates were calling me “boney”, so that stuck for a bit.
Like Stevied, one season I played centre forward for a crap team who had a white kit, didn’t get much action and stayed clean so started to get referred to as “Persil” as I was whiter than white.
At university my flatmates thought I was a Londoner (southerner in with a bunch of northerners), I also had a dodgy laugh, so my mates called me “Boycie”.
I don’t really have a nickname any more though!Posted 4 years ago
