Nicknames

"A rose by any other name...." Towns have 'em, so do schools, universities, states and countries. And even planets. Not to mention politicians, famous criminals and sportsmen. And on the home front, many of your friends and relatives and pets have nicknames. A category dedicated to trivia such as how Robert became Bob; or how Margaret morphed into Peggy.

Asked in New York City, Nicknames

   

Why is New York City called 'The Big Apple'?

   
   User Avatar 
   New York is called the "Big Apple" as in 1803 Evelyn Claudine de saint-Evremond was forced to flee France. She opened up a salon that became a place where men could enjoy the pleasures of beautiful women and high stakes gambling. The men that went to this such place lovingly nicknamed her "Eve" as to the biblical reference, and she would refer about the establishment and the women inside it as her "irresistible apples hence the name "The Big Apple." I don't know if it's correct but I'm told that from above New York with both its harbors is in the shape of an apple with the Statue of Liberty being the stalk. It is sometimes said that New York City is called The Big Apple because Peter Stuyvesant, the Dutch colonial governor back when the city was called New Amsterdam, planted a long-lived apple tree in it.

If you had to change your name, what would your new name be, and why would you choose it?

   
   User Avatar 
   I would probably go with what my mom was going to originally name me. Autumn Rain. I'd choose it because I like it better than my name now. Because Havyn sounds cool but I like Autumn Rain better.

What is a good nickname for a boy Espeon?

   
   User Avatar 
   Well, name it Esparagus, Espeed, Eserpeon, esropes, or esopes ----------------- Yeah, those are good. But remember, you don't HAVE to give it a nickname. I NEVER nickname my Pokemon. But like I said, those are some pretty cool nicknames. Maybe something short like Esp, I don't know. Also good: Esphagetti, Espargo, Lemonesparty and Esplosion. ----------------- Try Apollo, since it is the "Sun Pokemon", or Ra. I have an Arcanine named Ra. You could name your male Espeon Midnight or Darkness.

How did Illinois get its nickname?

   
   User Avatar 
   Abraham Lincoln is from Illinois, and that is how Illinois got its nickname. Not sure which 'nickname' you meant so: Prairie State- dates back to around 1842. Most of the state was covered with prairie grass. Land of Lincoln- Because this is were Abe Lincoln 'started' his political career. It is not where he was born that was Kentucky.

   Luce, Lulu, Cee-Cee, and Lucy can even be a nickname for Lucille or Lucinda.~ A nickname does not need to be a shortening of - or bear any resemblance to a person's real name. A girl called Lucy could be nicknamed anything her friends wished to call her.

Asked in New York, Empire State Building, Nicknames

   

Why is New York State's nickname 'The Empire State'?

   
   User Avatar 
   In the nineteenth century the word "empire" was often used in this country to suggest economic growth and progress. New York gained that sobriquet because of its great wealth and natural resources.In 1784, five years before George Washington was inaugurated in New York City as the first president, he envisioned New York as the "seat of empire," thus giving rise to its nickname: The Empire State. New York has completely fulfilled the expectation that Washington expressed to the state's first governor, George Clinton.
