Accounting is one of the top professions in the U.S. — there are about 1.3 million accountants and auditors nationwide.
On November 10th, accountants have the opportunity to celebrate their field. The day is known as International Accounting Day.
The date was chosen in honor of Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli, a Venetian mathematician who created the earliest publication of bookkeeping practices.
“Suma de Arithmetica, Gemoetria, Proprtioni et Proportionalita” was first published in Venice in 1494, earning Luca the nickname “Father of Accounting.”
Today, accountants are known for their problem-solving skills. In fact, many report that it’s their favorite part of the job.

How to Choose the Perfect Nicknames for Accountants
When choosing a nickname for yourself or an accountant you know, you’ll want to take your time and make sure it’s one the receiver will be happy with long term.
Here, we provide tips to keep in mind when narrowing down your top picks.
- Consider a nickname you can add to their name. You may want to add a nickname to the accountant’s first or last name. With a first name, you could create something like “Jane the Puzzler” or “Number Ninja Benny.” If their surname is Smith, you could nickname them “Mathkateer Smith” or “Gaap Attack Smith.”
- Does the accountant have a special interest? Keeping this in mind may help narrow down the choices. For example, if the accountant in mind loves the sea, they would likely appreciate a nickname like “Captain Calculator” or “Budget Buccaneer.” You could also try combining hobbies or interests of theirs with a name from our list.
- Consider nicknames fit for the accountant’s specialty. There are all sorts of jobs in the world of accounting. Keep their chosen field or their favorite part of the job in mind to help narrow it down to a few choices. An example might be “Tax Attack” for someone who works primarily on taxes or “Graph Guru” for someone who’s frequently creating and/or presenting graphs and charts.
