PC's thread searching for his child's name prompted the question about what taunting names we were called in school. I suspect not much can beat Melissa Pissa, but figured it was worth a try to see what else was out there... post up!

I was called repeatedly Collie Rintintin by a boy named John Furbacher. I promptly named him Johnny Furrybutt.


Edited to add: While that was my taunting name, the name I was known by was Pete.

Ouch!

Guys started calling me Boone. I asked if that was like Daniel. They said No. Like Bab.

I didn't protest when a group of girls started calling me F*#kMe, a take off on my last name.

Edit: oops I didn't register the taunting part when I read the first post. Hmm, I guess Joe Bike was taunting but it didn't bother me. Same with FukMe

I think most of the kids in school had a hard time rhyming with Todd.

Most of the guys called me,...now here's a shocker...."Shack"!

5th grade: "Erosion" because I rarely sat up straight in my chair, kind of like I was eroding.

High School" "Okie" even though I'd never been anywhere near Oklahoma. Don't ask me why.

Ouch, But to a climber that's almost a compliment right? ;)

Crimpie, Pete? How'd that one come about?

Mine was Cosmic. There were three of us geek musicians in school and we called each other cosmic. Not sure why. Perhaps for our imagined interstellar adlib journeys ;)

I never had any negative names attached to mine. But....here are some of the ones I remember for others:

 Smelly Shelley(apparently, the guys had given her this one, in about 9th grade)
 Kelly Stinkley(her last name rhymed, she didn't stink)
 Oney Baloney(my brother, Loren, who's "known-by name" was Oney)
 Most of my siblings were called Marco Polo at some point in their school daze(our last name is like one of those names)
 Chris Blasnigger(last name was Blasnig; it was the 60-70's in nowheresville, WI, where the only colored(other than white) kid in town was a mulatto at one of the public schools)
 Guinea Pig, for my oldest sister, Ginny, who was a bitch on wheels because she was always stuck babysitting 7 siblings(alll born one right after the other)
 Alvin the Chipmunk, for my brother Al, who was a runt of the litter as a kid

"Oleo", or "runt".
But then I became part of a star 3 man offense in soccer, and won a notorious battle for second place in a swim match against the Harlem Boys Club.
Having proved myself on the field it then became an issue of hair length.

Enter (I suppose its OK to laugh at this now) "hairy hippy"

Hey, you should have seen me.
I used to have women come up to me and say, "I wish I had hair like yours."


Really. I'm not lying. lol

PC: Where Pete came from continues to be a mystery. I was called Pete from the moment I hatched. Every now and then, someone in the family calls me Pete. That usually means they need a really big favor!

Oh yeah - I did have two nicknames that my dad gave me. But they never stuck anwhere else.
 TJ(My first and middle name initials, duh)
 Boom Boom(because when I was born, I had deformed feet, they used to call it pigeon-toed, and I had casts on my legs for the first year to year and a half. He said I would bang them on the table when they set me in one of those baby seat things)

Sue just gave me the Melissa-Pissa name here.

Everyone I know from my youth called me Danielle or varients of Danielle. I only became Melissa when I turned into a name on a roster in college and didn't try to stop it. Eventually most people just knew me as Melissa, so I went with it. My family still calls me Danielle.

So...the Danielle names were:

Dan-smell.

And the one I hated most:

Nelly.

The boys that called me Nelly swear (they're still friends) that they weren't trying to be mean...that they just thought it was a nickname for Danielle. At the time Little House on the Prarie was big, and the only Nelly I'd heard of the Nelly Olson, the Little House villainess. I thought it was a huge insult.

I never liked Dan either. It was a little too butch.

My best friend's last name was Gross. Man, did she get tortured! I remember one St. Patty's day, we all got shamrock shaped cut outs w/ our name rendered w/ O' or Mc' in front of it. Hers was O'Gross. Funny now...but pure torture at 9.
