Top 5 Movie Nicknames

To qualify, we had to know the character’s actual name in the movie (so Harmonica from Once Upon a Time in the West doesn’t count).  It can’t be an alter ego (sorry Batman, Neo and Johnny Dangerously) or a legit name change (Dirk Diggler).  No code names: Joker from Full Metal Jacket, or anyone from Top Gun.  And no names given by the press, but not used to address the actual person – such as Leatherface or Buffalo Bill.

  • Henry ‘Indiana’ Jones, Jr. - Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • Jeff ‘The Dude’ Lebowski - The Big Lebowski
