Best nicknames you've ever heard

I've known a bloke called Stevie for about 7 years as he goes to the same local pub as me, and only tonight did I find out it's not his real name.

He apparently used to sell blinds, so was a blind man - Stevie Wonder, Stevie.

Got me thinking about nicknames and I was wondering the best nicknames (and reasons behind them) you've heard?

The one I can think of off the top of my head is a guy who used to play for a Sunday league team I was on whose surname was McPhee - he kept trying to get everyone to call him Shooie despite us telling him he couldn't choose his own nickname. Cue the next guy on the team being given the nickname Shooie.

Sure you'll all have better ones!

  • The former Kent batsman Neil Taylor was known as 'Crime' as in crime doesn't pay apparently.

    Something to with the drinks he allegedly didn't buy!
  • Just remembered another one from Sunday league - we had two Nigerian students called Obi on the team, so they were 'Obi 1' and 'Obi Twice'.
