Chubby, do you know the answer to number three?
Here's the list students in an English club at my school used to pick their English nicknames, chosen by a Korean colleague probably because it's among the top Google results and is mirrored on a bunch of other sites. Maybe not the best thing to use for EFL students, but not too bad if you're trying to name your pet or a woman from the American South in 1857. I plan to write a big, long post about English names in Korea later, but for now I just wanted to let you know why you might have a Sniper, Adonis, Spotty, Primo, Scoop, or Roxy in your class.
