What is in a name?

As many of yawl folks know, I am from Memphis, Tennessee and I went to school at Morehouse. Over the years, I have meet alotta folks and it seems as if everybody I know or have met on a social basis has a nickname. Some of my folk, I don’t even know their real names. I have always bee called T, T-bone, or All-Mi-T. So today, I wanted to list the top nicknames of my boys and not in any particular order:

Blowfish (Anthony Smith) - Memphis
Poopsie (Lenord Guillory IV – got name 4 months in womb) - Morehouse
GrooveGod (Lonnie King jr.) - Atlanta
Cat Daddy - Memphis
Nonnac (John Cannon – cannon spelled backwards) - Memphis
Railhead (Lawrence Johnson) - Memphis
Mook-B (Dennis Butler) – Atlanta
Roulac (Harold Shaw Jr.) - Memphis

Putt (Jonny Mimms) - Atlanta
Tombstone - Memphis
Sammie Slick - Memphis
Four Eyed Bill - Memphis
Champ (Keith Bethany) – Memphis
Tony-Oh (Anthony Stringfield) – Atlanta
Hook - Memphis
Spoon (John Wesley Lawlah IV) – Morehouse
Pig (Jon Webb) – Morehouse
Go-Go (David Gordon) – Morehouse
Blunky (Shawn Welch) - Memphis

And for the record, you probably have seen all of these names in my books/stories.

IF YOU NAME YOUR CHILD SHIT HEAD, hOW DO U THINK HE OR SHE WILL TURN OUT?

IF YOU CALL YOUR CHILD STUPID, BECAUSE OF LACK OF A BETTER USE OF WORDS WHAT DO YOU THINK HE OR SHE WILL BECOME?

IF YOU CALL YOUR CHILD SWEET HEART WHAT KIND OF A PERSON DO YOU THINK HE OR SHE WILL BECOME.

IF YOU CALL YOUR SON MY SWEET PRINCE HOW WILL HE TREAT HIS WORLD?

IF YOU CALL YOUR DAUGHTER BRAINY WHAT WILL SHE CREATE?

WORDS HAVE POWER. CHOOSE THERE NAMES CAREFULLY, IT MAY JUST BE BE ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WILL HELP CREATE HIS/HER FUTURE EXISTANCE.

I like "Smoove" and I think everybody black person knows someone named Red.

My childhood nick name was Spruce (given to me by my Aunt) and my cousin got cute and I became Spruce Juice. Folks still call me Spruce, but will get the smack down if they even fix their mouth up to say Juice!

I prefer Drea or D.

Hello and thanks for stopping by my spot. I will definitely check your work out, definitely.

Ummm...childhood nickname - how about "Hallucination." Yeah, just go with your imagination on this one. That's a hard one to live down.

Blessings to you.
