Sounds like the secret code names of the Grade 4 boy scouts club.

Do I have to pick from your list? The name on my baseball uniform was 'Weasel', which was actually quite appropriate. :biggrin:

My mother has called me "Manny" my entire life. I had no idea where the nickname came from, seeing as how my real name is Alex. I asked her a few years ago and she said that she used to call me her "big man" when I was a toddler. When I got old enough to understand such concepts, I told her I was a "Manny" because my dad was a man and "I wasn't big like him yet".

Damn. I was a pretty cute kid. What the heck happened?

I don't know if this is related to your specific situation, but 'Sugarfoot' was the title of a TV western in the late 50's/early 60's. The name was a variation of 'tenderfoot', which the title character obtained through being pretty useless at cowboy skills (he was a lawyer).

I had one family member who called me Yellow Bird, and another who called me chrystabelle. So I pretty much answered to anything.

I was named after my father, so I ended up with a nick-name automatically. The neighborhood kids used to make up all kinds of names for me, in part because my given name is Harley, and they liked playing with the motorcycle association. An older kid in the neighborhood always called me Hot Bird. I don't remember how that came about, but I was always somewhat of a daredevil, and had to get stitched up and get tetanus shots at least once a year, so that may have had something to do with it.

tetanus shots at least once a year

Have they changed the formulation? Mine are good for 10 years per.

I don't know. There was a lot of turn-over in doctors in that little one-horse town, and If I couldn't tell them exactly when I had my last tetanus shot, they'd give me another one. The school nurses kept track of vaccinations, but those country doctors worked out of one-room home offices, and record-keeping was non-existent.

Understood. My doctor has perfect records, but I still write my tetanus expiry date on my health care card just in case.

They are all Viking nick names, like Boneless was a crippled chieftan who led a band of raiders into Britain, Skull splitter put an axe in a rivals head when he was 6 years old, so the story goes.

An older fellow from another town that I met a few years back said "In your town, every guy had a nick-name. It was like hanging out with a gang of mobsters." It was a pretty rough place. I started thinking back about adults that I knew as a kid - Witchy, Spitty, Weasel, Popcorn, Zyke, (his real name was Kermit!), and on and on. The old guy was right - it's like everybody had an alias.
