I’ve had various nicknames throught my life. Some good, some bad, some thoughtful, some random, some mean, some sweet, some just are. Below is a good representation of some of the more unique nicknames I have, or, have had been regularly called.
Hubs – This is my main nickname in real-life (and around here) and is as close as can be to an actual name without being one. Nearly everyone knows me as Hubs. Some only know me as Hubs. My friends introduce me at parties and other gatherings as Hubs. I respond to Hubs like it’s my given name. Some people also call my brother this but drop the ‘s’. I like it. I’ve been called it for as long as I can remember.
L-Train – I have no idea how I got this one. Only about two people at work call me this and one of them no longer works here.
Hotdog Boy – Last summer I would frequently (probably too frequently) visit the hot dog vendor in front of our office building for lunch. I’d bring my hotdogs back to my cube and stink up the whole office with the smell of onions, mutard, and tepip hotdog water.
Johnny Apple – This one came from a coworker who thought he heard something that wasn’t even actually said.
Hubby – A variation on Hubs. Mostly only used by a few females I know cause they think its cute. Other variations include Hubbalicious, Hubba-lubba-ding-dong, The Great Hubinski, Hubbles, and numerous others.
Bubbles – A variation on Hubbles
Monkeyhands – An affectionate nickname that is descriptive of my long “piano” fingers and my “grabbiness”.
Ernie – A variation of my middle name
Mr. Goodsuff – An affectionate nickname given to me after it was already given to a teddy bear.
Ponyboy – I got this nickname when I bleached my head with peroxide back in high school. Taken from the movie The Outsiders, when the character Ponyboy Curtis bleached is hair in order to hide from the long arm of the law.
My 11 Reasons – An affectionate nickname given to me that has to do with the number of letters in my name. “Why should I _________?” “I’ve got 11 reasons why. [then I proceed to spell my name]”. I loved this nickname and it worked like a charm.
Bones – As a child a neighborhood friend of my mom’s always called me this cause of how skinny I am. I hated it.
