The Nickname Reference List

Nickname Reference List

Yes, this is a quality first post of 2009, since there are some strange names in usage in this blog. I figured it was about time, that I posted this, though there will be some of these nicknames that I will have missed and no this is not deliberate, maybe it's the old age catching up with me, if there are any others that I have missed then let me know.

For those who want explanations, I will post them in the comments section.

James Blake - snake

Never heard of that one. Is it just because it rhymes or does it have some deeper sense?

I like that one for Seppi, but "German speaking Italian" isn't bad either.

Some who should he there too :) are:

Baby Gordo
