Success in Hollywood brings money, limos, fancy parties and for the
few, the ego trip of having people recognize them by their first name
(for example, Elvis, Liz, Cher, Sammy or Barbara). But, if a person is
not that lucky then maybe they'll get a nickname that will carry a
similar amount of notoriety. The following section is dedicated to
those celebrities and TV characters that have earned themselves
memorable sobriquets. This section includes celebrity pseudonyms such
as Mr. Warmth [a.k.a. Don Rickles]; TV character nicknames such as
Venus Butterfly [a.k.a. Tim Reid]; miscellaneous family or personal
nicknames given to a celebrity by his relatives or friends such as The
Swamp Thing [a.k.a. Faith Ford]; nicknames of flash in the pan news or
media celebrities such as Dr. Death [a.k.a. Dr. Kevorkian] and alter
egos of superheroes such as Batman [a.k.a. Bruce Wayne]. To continue,
select a letter of the alphabet and click to go to that section.
