Halos Heaven Nickname Database

An offshoot from Red Floyd's ever-so-convenient guide, I'm making this simply as a compilation of the names we've come up with.

Earlier last week, Red Floyd posted a handy guide to any member of HH, newbie or veteran, when he posted the 2014 version of his Halos Heaven meme compilation and newbie guide.

As much of the comments section went on to deal with nicknames, I wanted to have this up and handy as a quick reference point for any member, newbie or veteran, to identify a player by their HH nickname(s).

Over the years, there have been many players to garner nicknames from us, past Angels, present Angels, and even players who may not have ever played for the team.

I'll offer up my knowledge of certain players and nicknames here, and any fan who wants to share what I'm sure to leave out is free to; I'll add them in as they're posted. To start off, however, let's get it rolling with:
