Famous Nicknames


George Herman (Babe) Ruth (The Great Bambino)

Over 75 years after Ruth’s professional baseball career ended, he is still regarded as the best baseball player to ever live.

Just as important as his stats to his legacy are the monikers we have come to know and fondly use to remember him.

“The Great Bambino,” “The Sultan of Swat,” “The Colossus of Clout,” and simply “The Babe,” are all references to baseball’s greatest legend. We even remember his name, as “Babe” Ruth, instead of George Ruth. Truly the champion of the nickname, Ruth is also the symbol of achievement in our nation’s greatest past-time.
Charles (The Round Mound of Rebound) Barkley

“Charles is no stranger to the comical spotlight, so when this nickname surfaced, it obvious stuck. Barkley had a stellar professional basketball career and continues to be a force on the celebrity sports scene.”


The NBA Hall of Fame member and current TNT studio analyst is also known as “Sir Charles.”
