How to Create Your Own Engineer Nicknames
Engineers are amazing! They’re imaginative, intelligent, and unstoppable.
If you prefer to come up with your own creative nickname, keep these tips in mind to help you along the way:
- Use their inspiration for your inspiration. What inspired them to become an engineer? Whether it was someone they admire, a useful invention, or a famous building, the name or title associated with this motivational factor could be part of their nickname. For example, if they most admire The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, you might call them “St. Louie” or “Arch Deco,” as in art deco.
- What type of engineering do they specialize in? Chemical? Electrical? Mechanical? Whatever their specialty, create a list of words associated with this field of engineering and get creative. You might use one or two to create a pun or rhyming nickname.
- Add some of their personality. If the engineer in question is hilarious, make sure their nickname is upbeat and/or comical. If they love to travel, think of exotic places and words to tie in with the name. Or if they’re all business and professionalism, give them a nickname to match.
