Dyson and Hip Hip for the win, IMHO
neighbors had a white cat with a black tail – they named it Dipstick.
I have carried a Teddy Bear around (for my daughter when we were in the finishing?line of the pregnancy), and my name happens to be Ben, so everyone called me Mr. Ben.
One of my friends from high school was having a nickname Fetor :) he was super stinky ;)
My nickname is Toppy, given by my Grandma who sang a song to me when I was a baby with something about a top in it. I’m now 81 years old and many people don’t know that my real name is Ruth. I have a name book of funny names and nicknames that I’ve collected for years. Fun hobby.
I went to school with a guy named Harold Couch (Harry Couch) and we called him “Fuzzy Sofa”.
a friend of ours nicknamed our 8 year old overweight neighbor Stovetop
When he was little, my nephew heard his Mom and Dad refer to the neighbor lady as “fruity” so that’s what he called her and the nickname stuck. (To be fair, she was a little fruity.)
Worked with a chap named Harold Weiner who was referred to as Harry Weiner. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
Workmate was named Tessa Tinney. Too cute of a name so we called her moose cock.
had a friend named harry. he insisted everyone call him yogi. when i asked him why he said “you date my sister, you figure it out”. her name was sandy bush, his as harry bush…hahahahaha
I had a friend who I randomly found a curse word to use for their name every time I addressed him, because in 6th grade our teacher cursed him out for making his Kahoot username “Curse_Word”. Pretty ironic, honestly.
