I've thought about having a nickname for myself, and thought of a good few ones. Even though a found a few cool ones, or at least ones that sound smooth such as "NoFlow" :P, I realized that the best nicknames come naturally. They are best naturally because you usually get it from a friend and they usually only call you something that describes you well. Such as Peter Parkour from Urban Current.

You could be Mark "Guy Who Capatilizes Everything" Miller!  :P

Or, you could ask V-Hill. Sure he's got some advice for you: http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php?topic=12843.0

Mark "BigDrop" Miller sounds fine to me. but usually the ones that stick are the ones that are randomly given to you.

Some people at school call me "Insipration" not because I am one. but because when i'm in a good mood I look totally stoned... same when I'm tired, but I also act the part.

Nah. Naming yourself after your best vault is kinda tacky. I'd sitck with Koppo.

I think I cried a little on the inside.
Did you really just say " I love big drops" ?
=[
That's not what parkour is about, in the least. For the most part, it's actually the exact opposite of what it's about.

Please, don't take any big drops, because they aren't good for you and never will be, no matter how trained you are.

I think Leon wins. Even if this isn't a competition, he still wins.

About the name... I'd say just wait around and see what people call you.
Or, you could just use one of those online superhero name generators! http://www.generatorland.com/generators/superhero_gl.php#
It came up with "The Flying Brain Emancipator." How's that sound??

PS: I agree with QMKC about the big drops. Be careful, man.

Big question though: Do you really NEED a Traceur name? Most people don't have one, and the ones that do either had one before, or are pretty big and have been given them.

My vote goes for no nickname at all. It's just too tacky unless it comes naturally.

ok, umm I was training at this parkour, and one of the parents got to know me. He gave me this nickname called Agilisis, it looks weird, but based off of the work 'agility'. Anyway, just find a few people you either do or don't know out while you're training, show them your moves and ask! ;D

Your nickname doesn't have to be parkour related.  Mine is Naldo because Ron+ald=Ronald+o=Ronaldo-Ro=NALDO!
