    Need some help. I'm almost at my wits end. I am looking for some ideas for a handle to be used on a forum and on CB and some ideas for "nickname".
    I will try to help out. And maybe someone somewhere will also find this thread helpful as well.
    I will say my dad and his side ...have never been in my life.
    I've never really been "nicknamed" other than Duke.


    Just thought I would ask for help. Thanks!.....

    Well in my case most nicknames happen in the spur of the moment.. Or due to something I've done or said.. So go do some stupid thing with a friend and I'm sure you'll get one...

    What's your favorite handgun?
    Do you like to hunt or fish?
    Perhaps a different hobby?
    Any of these, could give you and idea for a really good nick to use.

    Good luck, and as always, stay safe.

    I sadly only have a bersa an a ruger, love both. I hunting have taken a trophy and I like fishing. Love my crossbow.
    Does playing gutair badly make a hobby, or being a country "lad".
    I was raised in ohio. And I went Army, now I'm in Florida...
    Don't really have any "true" friends. The one I claim like a brother lives in NY. ....

    I found my name one day setting at the computer.
    I looked up and saw a box on the shelf.
    Gave me the idea to work from.
    How bout "Gunner Duke" "Duke the Gunner" or "gunner 57-60" insert the years YOU served.
    Good Luck.

    Trained for combat but my Platoon Sgt (Lopez) wouldn't let me go.

    I'm Yunus, maybe Yunus89115 if it's forum that already has a Yunus. I got my name from an online game over a decade ago, Everquest, it gave me a random generated name of Lunus and since then Yunus, Zunus, Lunus, Bunus(rare) have been used by me. But Yunus has really stuck.

    You want a nickname, do something that leaves an impact on us, positive or negative... Although I hope it's positive.

    Hard to make up a good nickname, they really need to find you by themselves and often do when you least expect them. Ive had more than I want to remember over the years, some of them are better off forgotten! Ive been called, Buzzard Beak, Beak, Buzz (stemmed from a larger nose than my younger face could handle), Egore, Gore Cause my Family given name Gregor (odd to some). The college "year" and young Army guy produced some names that described my party hearty proclivity- Sid, CID, (glad I outgrew that). Im WebleyFosbery38 here because thats the most interesting weapon I ever owned (for about 40 years or so), a relic I inherited from my dad that turned out to be very valuable (It went to auction), Im not wealthy enough to own things I cant use or display, its just not me!

    35 years ago, the US Army said I couldnt use my Family name in my payroll signature. I gave it up eagerly cause it had gotten me less than great nicknames in the past. In the last 20+ years, Ive been dubbed JR (not Jr/ Junior!!!) cause my first name John is way common, (just yell John in a crowd and see how many look back), my last name starts with an R so that was easy. More importantly, I can be just about as sincerely respectful and nice or down and dirty nasty as JR Ewing on Dallas ever was (I do a much better job of keeping the Nasty at bay)! JR works for me, its stuck and if I make it to 90, JR will still be OK!

    Good luck in your search, may the force be with you!
