I want to see pictures of this 'Boobsie'. I hope it is a female, and that hers our gigantic thus earning the name.

It's Italy, every crime family has a soccer team, and every soccer team is owned by a crime family. Especially AC Milan.

I have a feeling that the mob guys with the cute names are coldest, most evil motherfarkers that you could find.

Someone with the nick name "Boobsie" would probably shoot you in the face without hesitation.

No they aren't. There's the mobster Joey "Rheumatoid Arthritis" Fannucio.

That's exactly what I was thinking. The kids with the weirdest nicknames were the ones that could handle it. Probably works for mobsters as well.

Nope.  Depending on the racket and its location(s), multiple families could have a percentage of the controlling interest.

I have a feeling that the guy "on loan to" is there to be murdered by the other crime family, should shenanigans go down on the business deal.

I'm married into a family of old Irish bookies and smart guys. In my experience, the sillier the nickname, the more serious the character. Two of the most intimidating fellows I've met: "Sidewalk" and "Ladle."

As long as they let him think he's winning at cards.

The mob does have the best nicknames. You could fill a book with them.

This goes back deep into Italian history and culture. For example, the nickname "the Moor" was used for men with dark hair or dark complexions hundreds of years ago. "Blacky" would be the modern equivalent.
Napoleon Buonaparte is descended from a "Moor" or "Blacky". It doesn't necessarily mean he was descended from Moors in the ethnological sense, but that can not be ruled out, since the whole population Europe is very mixed and the population of the Mediterranean even more so.

Rural cultures are really big on nicknames. You can see this in almost any of them. My French Canadian and British ancestors were up to their ears in nicknames, many of them simple and based on a physical trait (ginger hair, a big nose, what have you) but many of them mysterious and with a story behind them.

Some of these nicknames became surnames. I find examples all of the time in my genealogy.

One of my Father's old chums and cronies was nicknamed "Bimbo" which still meant a dumb guy and not a female slut in those days. Which explains why an Italian word with a masculin ending (Bimbo) is used of a female person (bimba). Dumbth is contagious, apparently.

Now that is one black dude. He is the kind of black dude whose blackness scares black dudes and even bad hombres.

(Nothing personal but you have to admit that light skin-dark skin racism is deeply engrained, even in races that have never seen an African or who are African themselves).

I read Bonanno family as bonobo family.  My mob name will be Love Muscle or Dick for short.  Mostly Dick because short and all such as.  Or, maybe Shortie.  I'd rather it was Knee Cap Knocker but that would be too long for practical use....or reality.

One thing I love about Terry Pratchett's novel is the nicknames Trolls have.

Detritus (a cop). Breccia (a mob name). The same rule of thumb that Fano just brought up with two wonderfully "Concrete" examples, applies to Trolls. The more strange and inexplicable the nickname, the more serious (and dangerous) the character.

You don't make fun of tough guys. You need to be way more devious if you do. If your instincts are bad, you end up squished by some Glacial Erratic.

Ooo, that would be the perfect name for a Tough Guy Troll. Or maybe you could name a troll after his birthplace, Falling Rocks.

Female Troll names tend to be "humanized" and dignified, like Ruby, Emerald, Crystal, Diamondium, or Pearl.

They are given without malice and aforethought. But they do tend towards sounding like stripper names.

Put it on! Put it on! as the Trolls would hoot.

My Indian name is nearly the same as my real name and my screen name. You can not improve on perfection. You also can not make nicknames out of a name like mine. The only way to do so is to lengthen rather than shorten the name.

That is why some dicks and some well-meaning friends have called me Brantford or Brantley.

Famous Indian Brants include Chief Joseph Brant, his powerful sister in the Women's Council, Mary Brant, and the country singer, Paul Brant, although I am not quite sure if he is a native or not.

If I were a villain I could call myself Black Brant, after the missile of the same name rather than the bird.

Members of the Mafia have a dark sense of humor and the nicknames reflect that sense of humor. Sort of like how the biggest, scariest, jacked-up guy is nicknamed "Tiny." It's likely the guys with the innocent sounding nicknames are the ones who are stone cold killers or the ones who killed a guy in a gruesome way.

I don't think from the song, no. I think he put someone in the hospital with a ladle.

They're just trying to secure a plea deal out of them to wear a wire on Paulie "Kitty McCupcake" Gatto.
