Nicknames

I was just wondering how nicknames come about. Are we allowed to give our selves nicknames or do they have to be given to us. I have 8 million none that i have made up myself. I am just bored at work, but it has come to my attention that a certain someone that write on this blog uses one that he dubbed for himself. It was also used on a very popular movie about fraternity life and John Belushi was the star. I was just wondering this isnt an attack from Big Angry but from now on i may dub me Bear

Big angry sounds better then Bear.

Big Angry said...

I know it rolls off the tongue, but i didnt start calling myself that but i am going with it because it Big Angry shows my softer side. It was just an observation and i was just trying to keep with the animal theme that others use

"In Viking societies, many people had nicknames (heiti, viĆ°rnefni or uppnefi) which were used in addition to, or instead of their family names. In some circumstances the giving of a nickname had a special status in Viking society in that it created a relationship between the name maker and the recipient of the nickname, to the extent that the creation of a nickname also often entailed a formal ceremony and an exchange of gifts." - Wikipedia

Smart Neck said...

big angry, maybe you should go with one of your other 1000 nicknames. I am working on a list right now.

Big Angry said...

Smart Neck said...

Big A,

We all must hide behind our blogger screen names, it makes it so much more fun to mess with you. Please help me make the list of nicknames, we will have to start with the easy ones.

Moose said...

getting pretty heated, has been this heated since I made the mistake of making fun of Shawn Bradley. damn those canadians

Big Angry said...

we still havent heard any input from the flounder cause we know he isnt working

stone said...

does calling somebody by their last name count as a nickname? If not, sometimes my mom gets mad at me and calls me "Mistake". Although I think that doesn't probably classify as one.

A-Dubs said...

I like the nicknames, granted I am not a LOHD contributor....I am trying to work my way up though...hint hint

Flounder said...

I gots nothing.....

Moose said...

Come on Flounder, stick it to Big Angry. Tell him who is boss.

AW, I will need at least 5 writing samples and a resume before I can pick up on your hint hint.

Cash said...

All I know is "Big Angry" is better than "Big Ears".

Incest in Red Bank said...

i love how big angry writes on this blog once a blue moon but when he does he stirs up "heat" and this time calls out flounder (which is good on the grill).
