Top 5 Movie Nicknames

To qualify, we had to know the character’s actual name inthe movie (so Harmonica from Once Upon aTime in the West doesn’t count).  Itcan’t be an alter ego (sorry Batman, Neo and Johnny Dangerously) or a legitname change (Dirk Diggler).  No codenames: Joker from Full Metal Jacket,or anyone from Top Gun.  And no names given by the press, but not usedto address the actual person – such as Leatherface or Buffalo Bill.
