Nobody can deny that a sweet nickname can set you apart. You can easily rise 5-10 cool points (on the Fonzie scale of course) just by having an outstanding nickname. Now keep in mind, that a lot of nicknames stem from a person’s name. The main example being Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli or AKA “The Fonz”. It comes natural and flows off of the tongue. And if your friends sit down, with the slightest bit of creativity, they can come up with one for your name. The problem is people can be lazy and that people think they are funny when they clearly suck. Brad doesn’t want to be called “B-Rad” because that is stupid as shit.


So for all of the Brad’s, Chad’s, rad Thad’s out there, here is a list of cool nicknames. And by the way, this can also be used to find a pretty sweet dog name as well. However, we would caution trying to find a female nickname here unless you want to sleep alone the next month. We can guarantee that most women do not want to be called tank, bubba, or biggie.
