Sawyer’s Nickname Generator


Silly, but whatever. My Sawyer nickname is “Einstein.” I like that. Plus, Sawyer is pretty.

    Sawyer is pretty. I wonder if he’s mathematically perfect.

    “Playdoh” … wtf? Do the nicknames have anything to do with the answers?

    but thank you for the eyecandy!

    My nickname was “Math Boy.”

    I’m not a boy.

    I’m “Stretch.”

    Hmm, a bit too close to “Moose,” my least favorite from adolescence

    Sawyer would call me “Sugarpop.” I kind of love it! And Sawyer is beautiful.

    Sawyer is gorgeous when he’s being bad, and he’s beautiful when he’s being angsty, but he is HORRIFYING when he’s patronizing Kate. Grrrrr.

    Great. I’m Babar. Which mostly reminds me of the nicknames my first boyfriend called me: The Walrus, and Hippo Hips.

    I’m “Pud”. Is that as in pudding, or pronounced more like “put” in golf. If the former – cool, if the latter, WTF?

    I want him to call me Einstein too!

    (Also, when I put in a different version of my name, I got “spacebar” which is kind of fun)

    I never realized there are only two skin colors in all of human existence: Tan and Pale. Who knew?

    Still trying to figure out *how* exactly I’m a sugarpop.

    Yes I am Pale, but Lou? I am a Girl.

    My nickname was “Whiteout”- which is really fitting, considering how damned much snow we’ve gotten this season in Maine, including 7 more inches overnight! :)

    Bill Clinton flies into Portland today; Hillary and Barack both land in Bangor on Saturday- she’s going 10 miles up the road to University of Maine at Orono and he’s going 1 mile from the airport to Bangor Auditorium. And YET another snowstorm, predicted as even more snow and wind, predicted for Saturday/Sunday!

    I’m Red Eye. What does that mean? Have I had a really, REALLY bad eye infection on the island?

    Yeah, I got “Huckleberry Pinhead” too and that just doesn’t work. At all. It’s three syllables more than saying my actual full name.

    I am Imelda. I wonder how many different possibilities there are? Seems like quite a few.

  19. Nisha

    I’m Half-Pint. Sad, but also so very fitting :( Well, at least he’s pretty!

  20. B. Dagger Lee
    B. Dagger Lee February 7, 2008 at 10:44 am |

    Not that many possibilities, because I’m Einstein, too.

    The “body type” choices include short, tall, brunette, blonde, tan, and pale? Gee that’s not Eurocentric at all. I was forced to admit that I’m one of the billions of short, tan, brunettes in the world, and I’m not even that short or tan, but I’m certainly not tall or pale in this country.

    And I got “Imelda” as my short, tan, brunette nickname. Awesome, I’ll just go organize my shoe closet, shall I?

    I got Red Eye (for pale, brunette, tall, creative, impulsive) — wha? But first Mondrian and Picasso when I didn’t realize that I could answer up to three things.

    Yeah, the eurocentrism is lame, but I don’t think anyone should be insulted by the resulting nicknames — that’s kind of the point. He calls people insulting nicknames!

    becca – I got mathboy too! I guess women can’t be logical. Did you use a fairly common girl’s name, cause I was going to try again with something more familiar than mine, in case I got a different result.

    Funny thing, it’s pretty close to my parents’ childhood nickname for my brother.

    harlemjd February 7, 2008 at 2:05 pm |

    huh, when I said my name was “Jane” I got Einstien. So Sawyer isn’t just sexist, he’s also completely unfamiliar with Irish names.

    “Freebird”? Um , OK – If I leave here tomorrow – Would you still remember me?

    My name was Haus. Um…ok. Why the German word for House? I mean in one was it is cool, Der Waffle Haus from Dead Like Me, Bauhaus…but then it also makes me think of Hoss. We used to call my nephew when he was a baby Hoss (cause he literally looked like a baby-sized Eric Cartwright) but as a 24 yo woman it doesn’t have positive connotations. Eh, I haven’t watch Lost since the first season, so no skin off of my teeth.

    It seems like it’s mostly random. I got four different answers entering exactly the same information. (Avalanche, Professor, Prince Charles, Red Eye) It looks like they probably have some that are specific to specific traits (Professor, Einstein for smart), and some which are just random and can be given to anyone (Red Eye?).

    …yes I obviously have too much time. And yes, I come out of lurking to post this nonsense.

    I got Mr. Zippie.

  29. harlemjd
    harlemjd February 7, 2008 at 4:14 pm |

    aw man, I want to be Mr. Zippie! (yes, even the mister. it just sounds sillier than Ms. Zippie – I think it’s the extra syllable)

    Mr. Zippie sounds like a good name for a penis.

    I got Mondrian. I should check again and see if I can score something better.

    I ended up with “Skeletor”!


    Not bad for a short, fat, 47-year old female redhead.

    Now I have to go out and conquer the universe ….

  34. Aja
    Aja February 7, 2008 at 7:48 pm |

    I got Mr. Zippie.

    I got that one too. Although I was a little confused as to where I fit in on the pale/tan scale, since I’m neither.

  35. Mnemosyne
    Mnemosyne February 7, 2008 at 8:08 pm |

    I got “Avalanche” the second time around. I think I like that better.

    Sawyer calls me “Quickie.”
    And we haven’t even met yet!
    How presumptuous.

    oh well, i’ll just tell myself that I, too, could be a skeletor!!! (so awesome, btw. and im a tall, fat 31 year old female redhead. its gotta be the red-head status lol)

    G. came up as Rerun.

    Now I have the theme from “What’s Happening?” going through my head.

    Who IS that???? What a babe!!! Is he from Lost? I’m guessing Lost based on the fact that he’s on a beach and a bit scruffy. Jeez louise this picture made my afternoon.

    In case anyone else had no idea where Capt. Lou Albino came from, apparently there was a trick-wrestler (or manager? first one, then the other?) who called himself Captain Lou Albano. Thank you, Google Images, for suggesting the vowel change.
