Thread Name: BS: 'Mudcat' and other Unusual Nicknames
Subject: RE: BS: 'Mudcat' and other Unusual Nicknames
I forgot to mention that the names given varies a lot and ranges from animals to plants and famous people.some names are traditional nicknames and every year group have somebody given that name.for eg. a name like "killer" runs through the year groups so you have a 1st,2nd and 3rd year student all called killer.

sometimes nicknames follows you throughout your entire life.there was once a minister of state who had his nickname attached to his official name. most of my secondary school mates still refer to my nickname when calling me.and if you are a parent who has a son in boarding house you have got to to know the nickname otherwise nobody will be able to call him for you,because sometimes even school teachers only know their students by their nicknames.

i was given the name "jo kusi". there are others like witch, satan's pants,lucifer,castro,clinton,rasta,tuga,tupac,snoop,spit,goat,army robber,koti,gyata(lion),etc.
