Since my friend and I can never pronounce Gueulemer we tend to call him "Gooey"

Javert gets frequently shortened to "Javs," but that's not really funny. I think we also contemplated calling him Javier at some point.

In my production, Thenardiere earned the nickname of T-Nardz. It was awesome.

That's sounds like what would happen if Les Mis were modernized like Into The Woods > Into The Hoods. Another idea (like a sequel) that I really don't want to happen...

My friend has a crush on Feuilly, but she didn't know how to pronounce his name at the time, so it was "Fee-ooh-lee-lee" and I glared at her for that. :lol:

Can anyone tell my HOW the heck Javert has gotten the nickname "Snookums"? I've read it dozens of times, but who invented it and, above all, WHY?

Snookums is a holdover from the early days of internet LM fandom. Basically a lovely girl who went by La Javert online invented the nickname. Her website lived on Geocities as La Javert's Flying Homepage (she had an affinity for Monty Python and its brand of humour) and can still be found on the Wayback Machine I think.

Er. I hate saying it was a "you had to be there" thing, but I don't think it's as funny to people who weren't around watching LJ update her page and stories, and involving themselves in the discussions in Le Café and other fandom hangouts at the time.

You may not like to say it, but it seems to me you may be right about having to be there... And yes, the page (or at least parts of it) are still on the wayback machine. Seeing the dates, at least I have an excuse for not having been there...

Anyway, thanks a lot for the explanation. I've been wondering about this a long time.

The tumblr people always surprise you with ridiculous pet names like Pony for Éponine or Taire for Grantaire..

Or those portmanteau names for ships. Seriously, I've seen the term 'enjonine' for E/E and 'Mosette' for Marius/Cosette.

I knew a lady who called my brother "Gav-roach," as a joke. He didn't take that too well.

Creepiest nickname yet.
