Nicknames

Postby sox 06 » Sun Aug 27, 2006 2:53 pm

I was just wondering how many players have nicknames and who are almost always called by their nicknames such as on Sportscenter or during the games. Here are a few that I could find.

Chipper Jones: Real name is Larry Wayne Jones, Jr.

Coco Crisp: Real name is Covelli Loyce Crisp

Are there anymore? And why do the players want to be called by their "other" names?

I'm sure these guys have been going by these names all their lives, not just since they became famous

Chipper Jones: Real name is Larry Wayne Jones, Jr.


If my name were Larry Wayne, I would change it too

Coco Crisp: Real name is Covelli Loyce Crisp


Covelli? Being named after a cereal is much cooler

Nook Logan's real name is Exavier Prente Logan

Tike Redman's real name is Julian Jawonn Redman

Cliff Floyd's real first name is Cornelius (Cliff is his middle name). It's not quite a nickname, but it's a vast improvement over his real name.

Oh, and B.J. Upton's initials are apparently ficticious. His real name is Melvin Emanuel Upton. :-?
