    Default Just out of curiosity - Boss mob nicknames!

    Ok, quite a few raid bosses, and a few of the regular quest bosses have nicknames, and I'm just curious on what some of the lesser know boss nicknames are!
    These ones I know:
    Arraetrikos is Harry... and I don't know any other nicknames for him.
    Suulomades is Sully, Sally, or Sulu .... and I don't know any other nicknames for him.
    Horoth is Horoth ... I've actually not heard him nicknamed... but I've heard he has nice quads.
    Xy'zzy is Mama Dog, or B-a name I can't mention in polite company- ... and I've not heard any other nicknames for her.
    Conjoined Abishai Devastator is Voltron, or something Power Rangers.
    The Black Abbot is Abbot, or the abbot.
    Queen Lailat is the Demon Queen, or Queen B-name I can't mention in polite company.
    Jailer is the turtle or the naked turtle.
    Judge is the chicken or the naked chicken.
    Titan Mk II and III are Margie and Ronnie, or the green one and the purple one.


    But that's about it. However there's lots of other bosses with names that are mouthfuls to say (Nythrios for one) who seem like they deserve something better than "that end boss or that big red guy on the platform".
    Oh and anyone else have other nicknames for the bosses listed? Or not listed?
    Orien Characters: Indolent, Rubyescence, MumboJumbo, Humdrum, Wynelle, Lexiann, and a handful of others.
    One of these days my big mouth is going to get me into trouble :P.

    My favorite was always Lord Bob from Everquest, somewhere in Velious. Can't remember the name of the zone though.

    Lord Doljonijiarnimorinar, in Velketor's Lbyrinth. Velious was EQ's golden age.

    Due to pronunciation.

    Arraetrikos: Err Ay Tree Kos

    Err ay sounds moderately close to Harry, using a dialect that leaves starting H's silent. "Yer a wizard 'Arry!"

    Thus, Harry.

    Also, Lailat is jokingly called Dairy Queen due to the initials.

    As well as Snake Woman, or just Snake when in quests that have marliths.

    That is what I suspected, but I would have thought it would be 'Arry in that case. But thought maybe there was something I was missing

    The Jailer in groups that I've been in on Cannith refer to him as the Pig, and the Judge is the Chicken. I've never heard about the naked turtle, but it sounds dirty. Speaking of naked: why don't Hezrous wear pants?

    Haggle pants FTW!

    It's too late, you've awakened the Gazebo.

    Lailat is also known as Kween, Snake Lady in some circles, but most of the time it's just Queen.

    and I personally like to call Velah Her Flaminess.

    I've seen Horoth called 'Big H' on occasion.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    I've often heard Sinvala from Mired in Kobolds called Momma.

    Hello, hope all is well. And if it isn't, sorry about that.

    That would be Scarlet before the FCC decided she needed to be "protected."
