    This is interesting: At 6’6" and 300 lbs, Arthur Henderson of the Omaha Twisters was both the tallest and heaviest Major League Human Cannonball star. Yet ‘Pee-Wee’ was his nickname.

    Perhaps “Pasta Gone Wild” would fit the bill.

    Started to read your comment, but realized my interesting was full. Had to quit, maybe there’ll be room tomorrow. Sorry.

    Not that strange, where I work the biggest man (by far) is “Tiny” even the name on his uniform.

    For several years, the afternoon shift manager at a grocery store where I shop was a huge fellow… not fat, just big.

    My guess would be 6’6" and 350 lbs…. he towered over the lanky 22-year-old who looked very tall standing alone.


    He was also called “Tiny.”
    It was on his name-tag, and even embroidered on his apron.


    And years ago, my neighbors had a huge Great Dane (is there another kind?) named “Pee Wee.”


    I think that sort of irony is pretty common… but I can’t think of a nickname that means huge, or giant, nor do I know a small person or animal called by it…..
    the closest I can think of off hand is a neighbor’s tiny chihuahua named Ali, after Muhammad Ali.

    Plenty of names to represent largeness, Titan, refrigerator, giant, colossal, big etc. Why not just use their actual name?

    Susan, I was watching a home renovation show once, and the home owners had a Great Dane named Fezzik. Although this was straight forward, not ironic, I loved it.
    (Just in case; Fezzik was a very large character in the movie Princess Bride, played by Andre the Giant.)

    Was there not a NFL player nicknamed the “Refridgerator”? Due of course to his size. I doubt if Brick Wall would have sounded as good. …. just a little piece of interesting….. now my mind is full. Come back later when there’s more room.

    which is to say, Why use any nicknames?
    .
    Because people enjoy doing so.
