** James "Whitey" Bulger really hates being called his more famous moniker since it was given to him by the police because of his [[BlondGuysAreEvil platinum blond hair]], and always instructed those close to him to call him "Jim" or "Jimmy." Since being caught, convicted and put in prison he's apparently [[http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2015/02/07/whitey-bulger-sparks-prison-probe/RFvMmEERrraVI0t32SFVpN/story.html changed his mind]] and now asks that fellow inmates call him Whitey, presumably for the celebrity factor. Also one of many reasons Howie Carr has his unending hatred is that he continually calls him Whitey [[{{Troll}} purely to piss him off]].
* [[UsefulNotes/{{Caligula}} Caligula]] was the childhood nickname of Roman emperor Gaius Caesar, (it means something like "little boot" referring to how he'd been made a small Legionnaire's uniform for when he went on campaigns with his father as a child that including a tiny set of boots) which he reportedly disliked.
