How to Create a Cool Sniper Nickname

You usually don’t choose your own nickname as a sniper — a nickname is given to you based on something memorable about you.

When creating sniper nicknames, you can get inspiration from the following places or traits:

  • Skills: Some of the most well-known snipers have nicknames that come from their sheer skill. For example, Chris Kyle — the basis of the 2014 movie American Sniper — became known as “The Legend” due to his high skill level.
  • Experiences: Memorable (and sometimes embarrassing) moments can be great inspiration for a sniper nickname. Fell down the stairs in front of everyone once? Maybe they’ll call you “Stairwell.” Or, if you’re prone to seasickness, you might get the ironic nickname of “Captain.” Names of this type can be very funny — as long as you’re in on the joke!
  • Given name: Use a shortened or altered version of the person’s given name — “Smitty” if their last name is Smith, “D” if their first or last name starts with that letter, etc.
  • Birthplace: Nicknames like “Alaska” or “Wash” (short for “Washington”) can work well for someone who is from a unique place, or just somewhere different from the rest of the group.
  • Looks: Nicknames based on distinguishing features are classic. Use names like “Blondie” or a blonde person, “Beanstalk” for someone tall and thin, or “Tiny” for someone short. After all, even Frank Sinatra was nicknamed Ol’ Blue Eyes!
  • Personality: If someone has a very distinct personality trait, that trait can become a nickname, such as “Duty” for a dutiful person, “Chatter” for someone who talks a lot, or “Tidy” for a hyper-organized person.
  • Pop culture: You can take inspiration from military characters in popular culture, like Rambo, Lt. Dan from Forrest Gump, Maverick from Top Gun, or Hawkeye from M*A*S*H.
