    The stories behind some celebrity nicknames

    http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/86733

    Some of these are really interesting. I knew about Miley Cyrus of course but I had no idea where some some of the names had come from, or even that they were nicknames.

    This one's kind of interesting too - the names of unnamed fictional characters like the Wizard of Oz, Mr Clean's first name, etc.

    Miley Cyrus actually said later on that she had always been called Miley -- that the whole smiley story was made-up (presumably for the press).

    But that's cool! Thanks for sharing.
