Tips for Coming Up with a Nickname

Nicknames are typically earned and not self-awarded. Anyone, any day can decide that they want to be called something, but a name given by someone else as much more meaning behind it! Not only do nicknames say a lot about the individual person, but they usually have some kind of story behind it that many don’t know about. Just what kinds of things are typically considered when giving a nickname to someone?

  • Personality: Personality is usually the biggest factor when considering nicknames for someone. What personality traits are most striking about this person? Are they aggressive? Funny? Always serious?

  • Physical features: An obvious thing to consider would be someone’s physical appearance. If they’re really short or tall, have funny hair, scraggly teeth, etc, then they’re pretty well set for some nicknames!

  • Mannerisms: We all have mannerisms and don’t even realize it! That’s because it’s just things that we automatically do. Does the person gesture a lot, blink a lot, have a lot of pep in their step?

  • Interests: Interests and hobbies often play a big role in nicknames, and it’s often the people around you in those same interests and hobbies who give such nicknames!

  • Habits: Whether they’re good habits or bad habits, it’s certainly fair game for assigning nicknames!

  • Inside Jokes: Many times, nicknames are given in the midst of an inside joke in the making, completely unplanned, and somehow it just ends up sticking. Some of the best and unique nicknames come about this way!

Since there’s many different kinds of nicknames for the taking out there, it becomes necessary to break them down into type. Here, I will focus on badass nicknames. Whether you’re looking for a gamertag name or simply trying to name someone around the office, badass nicknames are a great place to start!

Here’s a list of badass nicknames categorized by guys and girls for easy picking!

Picking a Badass Nickname

One thing about nicknames that everyone should consider is the feelings of the receiver of the nickname, of course. It’s important that they are okay with the nicknames and that they’re not hurt by it. Some people simply cannot handle being called something other than their real name, and in this case, they are not a badass and are not deserving of a badass nickname anyway!

Nicknaming should be a fun experience for everyone involved, so why not make a big game out of it? By picking a few different appropriate names for the person you are trying to nickname, you can take votes, draw from a hat, or even call out different names when they’re not looking to see if they happen to respond to one!

Once a good nickname is established, in order for it to stick well, never call the person by any other name again and be sure to introduce them to others by their nickname. Heck, make them a t-shirt with their newly-given nickname on the back to tell the world!
