    Grizzly because that name was not taken yet in the family.
    I'm a big guy and was given this name by the other villagers.
    my father called "Big Bear"
    my uncle "Kees the Bear"
    Me "Grizzly"
    my little brother "Bigfoot"

    My BC friends call or Grizzly or Tiny why Tiny ask Born2roam

    Well, mine is fairly obvious, I suppose. It's just my name. Not all that creative.

    Although if I had to pick something that wasn't my name, I'd probably go with something like Montalaskan as I'm a Montanan who is madly in love with Alaska.

    Although having 3-7-77 in there somewhere is tempting, too. Because in Montana, if you saw those numbers, you knew someone was going to hang. Hehehe.

    Nickname from work. We use last names at work but that can get old so we play off the last names. My last name is Mead. Hence the odd spelling of mediocre.

    This chick I used to go out with gave me a Kermit the Frog stuffed animal when I got home from Iraq. She then proceeded to call me Kermit because he is green and I was in the army.

    She is no longer in my life. Win? I think so.

    SNOW-APE: I was in the Marine Corps when given this name... I'm a stocky white guy with blonde hair and was far more muscular when I was in the Marines. I had a buddy I went to jump school with Chuck who was very charismatic... Anyway chuck (who happens to be black) was chatting up some young ladies one night out at the bar, and he called me over and introduced me as "The Vanilla-Gorilla"... We had a chuckle out of it and it stuck through the remainder of jump school and followed me back to the unit... Well "Vanilla-Gorilla" is a mouth full for a call sign over the radio so someone in my platoon amended it to "Snow-Ape" and it followed me for the next 8 years in the service.

    Got this name in the air force :-P being a pilot and operator brought the idea for the airborne part, and i was always sharing goji berries and pistachios (fruits and nuts... lol) with anyone who was interested. Which brought the idea for the hippie part of i guess :-P

    If i wasn't introduced as airbornehippie i was introduced as hippie.

    The buddy who gave me this name was a ginormous mexican, we called him brake (funny story :-P) and we flew almost every mission in iraq together. he always had a protein drink of some sort with him and One day he said those fruits and nuts (that im always eatin/sharin) are for hippies. I guess it stuck enough for people to like calling me hippie or airbornehippie.

    Got mine on my first hike with a hammock. Kept being told to "slow down" whenever we were hiking uphill and then because of old soccer injuries, my knees require me to "slowdown" considerably when hiking down hill. My buddy thought his dual play on words was funny and it is. So it stuck.
