Jonathan Suttin

What does Jonathan have to say?

Nickname FAIL

As a kid I always wanted a nickname. Jonny is sort of a nickname for Jonathan, but not the kind of nickname I’m talking about. I like people who have an origin story related to the nickname. A perfect example was a friend of mine in college. His name is Robert, but everyone called him Slider. The name came about one night when he was drunk at a bar and couldn’t lift his drink. He was sliding his beer across the bar and the name was born. Granted that’s not a glorious story, but it’s still a story.
I never had a story of something awesome or stupid I did that could be turned into a nickname. I also never gave myself a nickname because that would be poor form. However, someone forgot to send the poor form instructions to Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat. Wade is now calling himself “WOW”.

Wow, that is bad.

He says it stands for World of Wade and is part of his new shoe deal. It sounds pretty stupid and even his teammate LeBron James doesn’t like it. I’m sure Wade is doing it so he can peddle more shoes, but he could have spent a little more time with his marketing team to come up with a better name.
