People like to shorthand and apply nicknames to things. It's a practice as old as names.

 

Why did this warrant a thread?

We need to get more embarrassing. From henceforth Yamato will be known as Yamyams. The Big Yamyams.

Mainly we need to sometimes shorten names and instructions in battles.typing lengthy instructions in chat can cost you your ship or even the battle.

Just like the real world. No idea how many times I heard the Forrestal called Forest Fire by enlisted US Navy Sailors even though that was who died in the major fire. 

Also spellin these names ain’t ez.

Older guy complaint! I get it with nicknames however in this new (to me) brave new high tech world I have problems with all the youngins that grew up texting and with smarty phones.  Too many abbreviations for words now!  Hell it was a year before I grasped what LOL meant.  Finally I went online to a site that listed all these smarty phone abbreviations and what they mean. I still see too many abbreviations used, like on this forum, and sometimes I don't know what is being talked about. I am beginning to think it's time I put myself in "The HOME" and just sit in a rocking chair. Ya think?  LOL

Yamato's historical nickname is "Hotel".  Well, "Hotel" in Japanese.

This, people like to give things nicknames. It warranted a thread because the OP was curious. Here are a few that I have seen or used in the game. 

Iwaki Alpha - Death Pickle
St Louis - Inquisitor
Gremyashchiy - Gremlin
Pensacola - Pepsi
South Carolina - Party Boat 
Independence - Indy
Fututaka - Futurama, Fury Taco
Hosho - Hoho
Yubari - Yuban (coffee)
Watatake - Walkie Talkie
Chester - The Molester
Kawachi - Kawasaki
Isokazi - Izzy
Dunkerque- Dunkin Donuts, Drunkin Croissant

Indianapolis - Indy

Yeah, the Indy tag for the Independence goes back to before the Indianapolis was in the game. Many of those are from back in alpha particularly the Death Pickle. A bunch of us were on the alpha TeamSpeak when they were handing them out and someone remarked that it looks like a pickle and someone else said yeah a Death Pickle.

And also, Montana "Monty"?

I have a better question.  Why do you have to ask this really dumb question whose answer should be obvious to all?

Furutaka also gets furious taco

 

I like to shorten minotour to Minnie.

 

NepNep is a shorthand for Neptune.

 

I'm pretty sure there's more and i'm just being terminally dense at not remembering them.

 

EDIT: Atlanta: AGHHHHHHHHHH! - Every CV's Name For Her.
