A nickname is a name of a person or thing other than its proper name.

There's a Snapple TV commercial currently running where the English lady (unseen) tells her husband, "Knock his knickers off anyway".

Which had me thinking what you folks nickname people, places and things around you.

Here's a starting list, yet please throw in anything else you address using a nickname.

What do you nickname...


the beach you frequent?
your vehicle?
your spouse (or girlfriend/boyfriend/whatever friend)?
your mother?
your father?
your brother and sister?
your children?
your pet(s)?
bad drivers?
elderly people?
young people?
police officers?
Military personnel?
A beautiful woman or handsome man?
underwear (and what's under that, if you care to say)?

You get the drift.

Acronyms and abbreviations are most common.

Here is HT. Ryan is PZ. I'm currently in "Waiks". :cool:

What do you nickname...

the beach you frequent? We'd call KALAMAS in Kailua, KALAKS since it was near KALAKA STREET.
your vehicle? In my lifetime, I've owned WHITE TRASH (don't be offended she was our white, beat up Buick used for the beach), SILVER STREAK ('87 Aerostar Van), and now we have LOCAL GIRL (Nissan Altima) and BIG GIRL (Isuzu Rodeo)...can't wait for MO' BIGGA!
your spouse (or girlfriend/boyfriend/whatever friend)? BABE, SWEET PEA, KIT'N.
your mother? MA.
your father? DAD at home, and in the business setting, by his first name just like on the Soap Operas!
your brother and sister? Our little souls call each other TITA or BROTHER.
your children? MY HONEY. AND OUR LITTLEST SOUL ASKS THAT WE CALL HIM "BOY".
your pet(s)? WE DON'T HAVE ANY AT THE MOMENT.
bad drivers? GIRLS! Just kidding, DOOFUS.
elderly people? BAD DRIVERS? :D GRANDMAS AND GRANDPAS.
young people? THAT GENERATION. In speaking I refer to young people as a "GENERATION" since it seems their behavior is "odd, different."
police officers? POLICIA. OCIFFER on a drunk occassion!
Military personnel? SIR OR MA'AM. OUR TROOPS.
A beautiful woman or handsome man? No cat calling from this corner, kinda boring in this department.
underwear (and what's under that, if you care to say)? BIBS, PANTIES, BOXERS, and in our home, BOYS HAVE BOTOS and GIRLS HAVE BUNNIES!

What do you nickname...
the beach you frequent? "the beach in front of my condo"...maybe I should shorten that to "tbifomc"!

the beach you frequent?
My favorite beach, which I shan't describe too closely because it's kinda secluded, is known by people at a church I used belong to as "Pastor's Lot." Our pastor, a humble Japanese man who'd assumed the pastorate ten years before I was born, had purchased a beach lot when he was a young man and built a house upon it, with his own hands. When he finally retired forty years later (an astounding tenure for a Southern Baptist minister), that's where he moved. While he was our pastor, we used to go there for picnics and beach sleepovers.


your vehicle?
My current vehicle doesn't have a name, but I've had cars named Angela (a red pickup) and Blueberry (a Toyota Corolla hatch)


your spouse (or girlfriend/boyfriend/whatever friend)?
I've had girlfriends I named Star and Princess. I know; not very creative.


your mother?
Mom or Ma.



your father?
Dad.



your pet(s)?
I have a goldfish named Gilligan.


bad drivers?
"Buddy." As in, "Hey Buddy, what are you doing?" or "Which way are you going, Buddy?"


I have a friend who likes to name all of our regular haunts with something other than their actual names. So we've had hangouts called "Cliffs of Insanity," "O.J." (for "oyster jun"), "Coconut Syrups" (that was Eggs N Things), and my favorite, "The Village Idiot."

August 14th, 2007, 01:51 PM

your vehicle? Elvira (after the song, not the lady—Ka‘au's cover of the song was very popular when I bought the car)
your spouse (or girlfriend/boyfriend/whatever friend)? Sweetie, Dear, Blue Kazoo
your mother? Mom
your father? Daddy
your brother and sister? Hey you
your children? Pookie/Kiki; Honey Bear/Gigantor/Lucky
your pet(s)? The Puppygirls
bad drivers? "Useyourblinker!"
elderly people? babang, tata, Grandma, Grandpa
young people? "Damkeeds!" or "young'ns"

Ours started off with MooMoo but she didn't respond to the name so it devolved into Choochi. It was the one name she always came to when you called it.

the beach you frequent? The closest thing to a beach I go to is my ashtray...and her name is Smokey.

your spouse (or girlfriend/boyfriend/whatever friend)? Single and loving it, but my pet name for my last fellow might as well have been "Oy, gevalt..."
your mother? Lady or lassy
your father? Old man or chief
your brother and sister? Termite
your children? Yeah...how about no.
your pet(s)? Miss Prissy-Tail (Girl cat) Dammit! (Boy cat) Wuss (Boy rabbit) Tink (Girl rabbit)
bad drivers? Sir/Madame Douchebaggian.
elderly people? Sir, ma'am (Jokingly: fossil, bone-bag)
young people? Whippersnapper
police officers? Sir/Madame Buzzkillington
Military personnel? Professional Warmongers
A beautiful woman or handsome man? *wolf whistle*
underwear (and what's under that, if you care to say)? Knickers. As for what's under it, you've got the bajingo for the ladies, the peep for the lads, and the clitoris is called the "sneepur"....and if anyone else has seen Hostel, they know why.

Hey Tutusue! When is it eggzacktly that you turn "elderly?" (oops, "experienced") We are having a "discussion" about it at my house....I say elderly happens at 90. Maybe 85, but definitely not until 80 at the youngest.

(sorry for the offtopic, didn't think it warranted another thread....)

It probably does warrant another thread so if the mods wish to move this, that's fine!

There are different delineating ages for "elderly" or "experienced" or "senior citizen" or whateveryawannacallit!!! It's a different age for different people, as I see it. My 96 year old upstairs neighbor is beyond elderly mostly due to his mind set. My 87 year old friend...well, I can't begin to keep up with her. Whatta pistol that lady is and she goes to aerobics class 5 days a week. Some of her younger contemporaries call her "spry". Spry, my okole! Spry, to me, denotes "old with energy". There isn't an old bone in that 87 year old's body nor is there an old thought in her mind...an amazing woman.

Personally, I feel the 60s are the new 40s. The gov already considers me "elderly" or however they refer to it! AARP considers us aging at 50!

The nickname "Tutu Sue" has followed me since 1997, when I announced the impending birth of my first grandchild. A member of an online newsgroup assigned that name to me and, like mud flung against the side of a building, it stuck!!! And, I didn't mind one bit. I've used it online since then and even my clients call me Tutu Sue!

Upon reading a guitar instructional book this morning, I took notice that the author used the term "Band Aid&#174;" in reference to an adhesive bandage in one of the paragraphs. I don't think the author even thought twice about it.

What household or other items do you refer to by their brand name instead of its generic, industry-termed name?

Like we often call...

Facial Tissue - Kleenex&#174;
Cotton Swabs - Q-Tips&#174;
Guys will sometimes call tampons "Maxi Pads", which is far from the what it is!
Men's Underwear - "Bebs" (local slang from the brand name BVD&#174;)
Plastic Laminate - Formica&#174; (the now-old school stuff your countertop is covered with)
Personal Cassette Player - Walkman&#174;

What else?

Also for a copy machine, regardless of brand, many folks still call it a Xerox® Machine, sometimes even using the name "Xerox" for the word "copy". "Can you make me a "Xerox"?

It took a while, but after that incident, that Xerox building was converted into a film studio (http://www.lostvirtualtour.com/lost/filming_locations/oldxeroxbuilding/index.html) used to film scenes for the TV series, LOST. It's currently a DAL-TILE Showroom and warehouse.

Another local slang or nickname often used based on a brand name is Bondo®, the auto body repair filler putty stuff. It's supposed to be pronounced "Bond-oh" (like James Bond + Oh), but the local way of saying is "bone-dough". Like that, but a bit shorter.

Anyway, locals will sometimes reference that product to various "patch jobs". Such as, "Finally the City & County went 'bondo' da' pot holes." Or, "You seen that chick? She had so much 'bondo' on her face." (make-up). :D

Speaking of Hibachi grill, with the heavy influence of Japanese culture in the islands, we use many Japanese terms on a daily basis.

Like for fishing line, we call it Tsuji.

Of course, "hana buttah" came from the Japanese term "hana" which is nose, making that mean "nose butter".

We call soy sauce "shoyu".

When someone does something bad, we say "bachi" (to instigate a curse).

When someone is a tightwad (stingy), we call them "manju" (referring to something small like the pastry is; as in not giving very much).

I often substitute "yes" with "hai" when talking casually with friends.

Plenty more on that.

As in "honey, take me home, it's been a long day at work and I can't wait to wash off my whore paint."

Or following a peck on the cheek (at lunch at work?) "honey, c'mere! I got my whore paint on your face!"

It especially applies to lipstick. I hate that stuff!

Either "Large Lad" or "Junior". HaHa! but true. :o

wow, guess I don't use many nicknames!

(Item of note that you didn't want to know about anyway but I'm compulsively going to tell you anyway:

The etymology (origin) of the term "Nickname" is disputed. Wikipedia will tell you that it's a distortion of the 1440 Anglo Saxon word 'ekename ' from Old English 'eaca' meaning "increase."

Popular knowledge, however, relates that a nickname is the opposite of what was commonly known as "a Christian Name," based on the appellation of "Old Nick" as one 'nickname' given to the Christian concept of the devil. Thus it was a name used instead of your Christian name, e.g., Robert = Bob, etc.)

A person who farts: "Chair Blaster" lol. I saw the word "Chair Blasting" in a urban dictionary online but I then started saying "Chair blaster" instead. Either way, sounds funny...except for the smell. :P
