Do/did you have a nickname?

Recommended Posts

Did or do you still have a nickname?

 

Growing up in the late 80's/90's we went through a phase of calling each other by our mother's forename. My mum is called Lesley and my nickname of Les has stuck with me for over 25 years now.

 

You can always tell which set of friends knew me from growing up as they call me Les where as people I've met and become friends with through soccer/work/ etc all call me by my actual given name.

Was 6'0 230 going in the 6th grade.  Went to the high school for orientation the summer before my 7th grade year, wore a yellow shirt.   A senior yelled out an open window "Holy crap here comes Big Bird."  It stuck throughout high school and morphed into Bird sometime around 10th grade.

I can't post the names I was called as a kid

 

Nor the later ones with adult friends.

I don't normally tell people this as it's kind of embarrassing but you guys seem cool. 

 

Everyone in my life calls me by the nickname Super Cool Awesome Tough Strong Man aka: the bringer of the Thunderpunch. 

 

Or SCATSMAKATBOTT for short.

I had a mispronunciation of my name during roll call by my new math teacher on the first day of senior year.  One of my buddies twisted that a bit with wit and a split second later, another wisecrack, and for my senior year I was the 'Shiek'.  Lots of yearbook references....

 

I had forgotten about the name when at my 10 year reunion, decades ago now, I had just walked in and was trying to talk to someone that I recognized.  It was hard to hear because there was some fool hollering a bit behind me in the crowded bar area.  After a bit, when I finally focused on what he was hollering, I had to laugh.   SHEEEEEEK!.

My football nickname was "Meatball," compliments of my defensive coach (before they were called "coordinators.")

 

Now I just go by my given name: John Jacob Jinglehiemer Schmidt.

Through the years it's been O, big O, little O, finally seems to have settled in at Steve O the past 4 decades. Anyone who drops the Steve has known me at least since college, more likely since high school or earlier.

The preacher-man calls me a sinner, but his little girl calls me a saint.

"They called me chicken legs, they called me four-eyes
They called me fatso, they called me buckwheat
They called me Eddie..."

 

Actually, my father called me: Chico when I was a small boy.  I wonder if he knew it meant "small boy" in Spanish or because I looked like Freddie Prinze? I am not a "Francisco."
