Default Nicknames

okay, I was looking through the member list, some of the nicknames are self explanitory, like for example, SJ, and Aranda, and Sal, cuz that's their names. But some of the members have some pretty wierd (different) nicknames. I was just wondering why you all choose the nicknames you have.

Well CRAZY 8, I felt uncomfortable using my real name so I went with 2girly because I thought it was cute and easy to type.

i put solitario cus i grew up alone, so much that i got used to it. also 'cause I feel that many people need others to validate them and naw, I'd be damned if i depended on someone else to validate me. I hold it down on my own, to me being true to myself always comes first.
113 are the first three digits of the area code i live in.
'bout u crazy8? whut's so crazy 'bout you n whuts da 8 for?

Amongst the vatos from the barrio... I'm Tha Lucky Lunatik...

But moving around while working in fields I once lived in a barrio
de puros mayates. (I mean no disrespect by saying that...) And well
all the homies would call me The Mexican when reffering to me. It
kinda stuck cuz I hated being called "Chico." I just spell it differently
cuz that's how I am... different. So... I'm Tha_Mexakin straight outta
tha skandalous 863!!!

A LOT of people ask me what my name means.
When I was younger I lived in a neighborhood in Atlanta where it was a mostly blacks, then Asians, Indians, and Chicanos--all the people that lived in my neighborhood was born in the U.S. I have a real crazy personality, and I'm kind of short, (5'1") so they called me Lil Loca. When I moved further away from the inner city, hay muchos ilegales o si no son mojados at least all them were born in Mexico, so they call me Pocha o La Chicana cuz I'm like the only one where I live now. Combining them both, you get PochitaLoquita!! My other nickname that I use is XplosiveChicana, cuz they say I have an Xplosive Temper heheheh and since they call me La Chicana.

When I was a freshmen in high school my best friend Mauro gave me the nickname bouncy (from the homies) because I have big boobs that bounce when I walk and I look like bouncy, the only thing different is that she's a lil' darker than me.

um...well mine. I've had the nickname "eight" ever since I could remember. I'm not sure why my friends gave it to me, but it ended up sticking to me. Other people would hear them call me that, and then they would start calling me that too. "crazy" is another nickname, my same friends started calling me that later, cuz I would do some crazy crap to get peoples attention. So I just put the two nicknames together, "crazy"and "eight". And TADDAAA! that's how I got my nick

When I was little, I had long hair and my tio's would always say " ay viene el apache". Except for 5 years military I always had long hair. In 2000 I cut it and right now I'm growing it again.

I got my nickname for the obvious, I'm short and everyone back at home knew me as short-cakes. I don't know how the "cake" part was put into the mix, but it just stuck on me.

About the word "trucha"; whenever you wanted someone to "watch out!" or "duck!" (something flying at your head like a punch or rock) or cops are coming or someones watching; you tell'em "trucha". At least down here in East Los you do.

Trucha is a type of fish... actually a sort of salmon. Seeing that fish
are really quick and hard to just catch is where the term Trucha
derived from. You gotta be trucha so you don't get caught...
