Wu-Tang Baby Nicknames

One of the most important aspects of naming a child is figuring out what, if any, nicknames are easily derived from potential names. A nickname can literally make or break a child, figuratively. For instance, when we came up with the name Daughter for our daughter, there were no bad nicknames associated with the name. But there was a completely awesome nickname: Ol' Daughter Bastard.

First, Chappelle's Show brought you Wu-Tang Financial. Now, since I'm weird, I bring you Wu-Tang Baby Nicknames -- nicknames based on Wu-Tang Clan members that you should think about if you want your kid to be a total badass.

-Rzosalyn (or Rzosalynn, depending on how you might spell it, or Rzosalie if you're a Thin Lizzy fan)
-Rzaef (I know a lot of you weren't thinking about Raef as a possible name for a boy, but this could change your mind)


Method Man
-Bethod Man (or the more formal Elizabethod Man, or even Mary Bethod Man)
-Method Dan
-Metheodore Man (or the less formal Metheo Man or Methted Man)

-Raekwon (or Norma Raekwon)

Inspectah Deck
-Inspectah Declan (this is my favorite)

Ol' Dirty Bastard
-Ol' Dirty Barry
-Olden Dirty Bastard (my shout-out to Olden Polynice)
-Olivia Dirty Bastard
-Orenthal Dirty Bastard
-Ol' Donny Bastard
-Ol' Dolly Bastard (This is particularly relevant where Dolly is born to unwed parents. Frankly, if you're having a kid and aren't married, you should probably steer clear of the name Dolly for this exact reason.)
-Of course, you can also go off on a tangent with some of his aliases. I suggest O.D. Bea, Dirt McGertrude (this is my second favorite overall), Big Baby Jesús, or simply Osirus.

Ghostface Killah
-Ghostface Kyle
-Ghostface Kyla
-Ghostface Klily (or the more formal Ghostface Klillian)


Masta Killa
-Marissta Killa
-Marcia Killa
-Chesta Killa (of course Chesta Killa is not the first nickname one thinks of for someone named Chester, so keep that in mind)
-Masta Kisabella
-Miasta Killa


I encourage you to post any suggestions you might have in the comments.
