One reason for writing the work was a response to the radio message "People wave", the morning of 19 February 2001, that President George W. Bush (Jr.) has a habit to contact his wife, friends and extended family members, friends, and now to the White House-created nicknames. It is also affected and the president of Russia (see the newspaper "New Rusco word for April-May 2002). VV Putin ("Putiput"). We think that such a liberty, Illegal anyone, let alone the President of the United States. A three-dimensional human name - name and surname is quite capacious designation card (onomastics) in a civilized society, the chance of recurrence is very low. Individual nicknames humiliated dignity. Name, like freedom, is protected by law. And assigning nicknames degrading dignity, punishable by law.
Our work is not intended to be comprehensive and subject to the absolute accuracy of the transcripts of all the nicknames. Where possible, the authors have tried to base their research on sources both historical and literary (they are at the end), and also used personal observation, interview elders, wit, writer and poet in.
This collection has a nickname in the tables. In characterizing the nicknames in the relevant boxes below are nicknames name (!), The root of the word (II), its origin (!), Almost all the known value (IV) and examples of its particular use (V). For example, Matata Dulcha "dulcha" scoop, cup liquid (wine, water, oil), degrees, flour, ranked in the bottom of the barrel special miller (its share), Benjamin Kory, "kory" reciter of the Quran by heart, eyes closed, scientist, teacher , respect to the blind.
For convenience, nicknames are organized by their value: religious, educational, place of residence (place names), like it, especially physique, etc. We refused to classify the place of discovery of nicknames because they often occur in different locations. Each nickname is given in, usually once, not again! At the same time, it should be borne in mind that the same nickname can exist in multiple versions, due to different pronunciation and spelling. For example, "TABASSUM" smile and "Tassabum", "cars / 1" guard and "Kolovur" "Kalontar", "Kolontar 'and' Kalantar 'headman, etc. In nicknames related to the job are often used suffixes "Chi", "gar" (similar to the Russian suffix "nickname", "chick", "plier"), etc. The authors do not provide some means at their disposal insulting nicknames for ethical reasons.
At the end of the collection is an alphabetical list of nicknames on the pages indicated that the reader could easily find interested his name.
