Nicknames For “Gingers”
Being a redhead all my life people have called me "nicknames" instead of my actual name. After being called Copper Top today, I decided to share with you other names for us so called gingers.
As a small child I was called Chucky by almost everybody. I wasn't sure if it was because of Child's Play or Rugrats, but overall I didn't think it was too bad of a nickname.
In elementary school some kids called me ketchup. If they were trying to poke fun of me, I think they failed. Who gets sad when they're called a delicious condiment?
I met an Australian and apparently they don't call redheads gingers. They call them rangers (rang-ers), short for orangutans. When I asked him why, he said it was because of our orange-ish hair color. I have to say, ranger sounds kinda nice when said with an Australian accent.
I personally like fire extinguisher. Nobody has ever called me, but it has a nice ring to it.
Even though I get called all those names, the most however is Ginger. So thank you South Park for making everybody call redheads gingers. Have any other nicknames for redheads? Let me know in the comments!
