Stevo the devo
Steve the Peeve
I still get Stever, and of course I got Steverino, but Stiv? Stiffles? Steve the Peeve? What kind of substandard public schools were the kids who came up with these attending?
This is fun, though I haven’t heard a lot of these:
Heather Tether Ball
Heather is light as a feather, plays teather ball and predicts the weather
Do you like leather, Heather?
Heather my Pleather
Paul Mall - Used in reference to a brand of cigarettes.
Palmolive - In reference to a dish-washing detergent.
Pauly-Wally doodle all day…
Polly want a cracker
Okay, that’s a lame list.
I did get called Paulette once and I was called Paulus by some dickhead for a while. But really, my name is not that interesting to begin with. I had more nicknames based on my surname, really.
among teasing names listed:
Err (Only from my brother, I hated it, and called him “Ick” (His name was Derek, unfortunately, he minded being called Ick less than I minded Err). Advice to parents, don’t give your children very similar names. We were often called Erik and Derika )
Eureka (Not until college, and then it was a nickname from people whom I was friends with. It sure beat “Add-a-line” (Add a line to Erica and you get Erika, people who don’t spell my name right the first time often do))
Icky(not that one either).
And they forgot Elika- which came from one boy in fourth grade asking the boy from Japan what Erika was in Japanese. Since I heard the discussion, and since Elika is so similar to Erika, I never minded it.
well, they did have my name sorta. my first name is beltrand. they list beltran (my mom added the d to ‘anglocize’ my name a bit…) anyways, it’s spanish in origin. i can list my own drawbacks tho…nicknames i heard:
batman (sing the song and sub. beltran, very funny, really)
electron proton neutron (yeah, science class was always fun)
well, really the main drawback is never being able to introduce myself w/o hearing “huh?”, “i’m sorr?”, “how do you spell that?” etc…
used to hate my name as a kid, but now i luv that it’s unique
